So at one time this was a really promising band. The first album, Best Served With Volume, was kind of weak but it showed potential despite its first-album flaws. But Bombshell and Deadly Passions were outstanding. Judgment and Private Sessions were much weaker in comparison but okay, I guess.

The singer's giant boobs have always been part of their marketing scheme, but in the last few years it seems like that became the sole marketing focal point for the band. They're nice boobs and she's attractive so I get it, but it also seems like the band has lost its focus on what's more important—you know, crafting memorable tunes. Like these...





And then we have this new video, "Rock Me," from their upcoming album, Break The Chains. Sounds totally 80s. Well, it's definitely that...in terms of cheese.



WTF? Sure, I like boobs, but this thing is terrible in every other way. The song is weak as hell, the video looks like it was recorded with an iPhone, and clearly the person filming has no concept of lighting (or filming in general). Just horrible all around.

Bummer.

I've seen amateur porn shot with better production values. I'm sure the rest of the band is thrilled that they don't even appear in this too. "Let's focus on the funbags, you guys can go load the gear in the van. We'll call you if we need you".

Is the dark-haired girl in the band or is she just a prop?

A prop. Guess she's the singer of a band the guitarist is currently producing in the studio, so it's probably also a terrible way to market the band.

The boobs are nice, much higher quality than the songwriting, recording, video production. She could probably make more money as an auto parts store calendar model then playing in this crappy band.

Laughing very hard

So it's the chick he's currently f**king. Ok, makes sense.

I think SD is on the right track here.

I don't know if the guitarist and singer are married or siblings. They share the same last name.

Either way, SD is right except for the "crappy band" part. At least concerning previous albums. Like I said, Bombshell and Deadly Passions are excellent.

I have their "Bombshell" album and it's just OK. Never felt compelled to investigate them any further than that....and though the eye candy in that new vid is nice, musically it's just "meh." So I will go back to ogling the singer's rack and ignoring the tunes. Laughing very hard

Sadly, the downward trend of this band continues... =(



New singer too.

Sure does. It sounds like the singer is performing one song while the band is playing 2 or 3 other songs.

Wasn't ex-Megadeth guitarist Jeff Young in this band at one time or was working with them in some way some years back?

Apparently he auditioned for them at some point but it didn't work out for whatever reason. After hearing that last tune, I'd say he dodged a bullet there. Razz
