Eonian Records, torch bearers for all that was sleazy and big haired in the 80's and early 90's. Well, they've just released four compilations from the also-rans of those eras and the first disc set to trouble the decks of ÜRHQ comes in the shape of Felony.
We find ourselves up to our nuts in sixteen tracks culled from their back catalogue of cock rock. 'Helltown Hotel' kicks off with 'Cat Daddy' and its power riffs and harmony backing vocals create a wall of rock to remind us that for every Dokken there was also a Felony.
The vocals remind me of Heavy Pettin' whilst the band kick up a stink with a flurry of double bass thumping. Quite why they felt the need to include three versions of 'Heist In Helltown' when there are only sixteen tracks only the band will know, but it does seem a little OTT.
Hair metal heaven for those who like a wang bar and George Lynch type riffola fests.
