Reviews

FINGERNAILS - ALLES VERBOTEN - HIGH ROLLER  
Fingernails has apparently been around for over 30 years. Yet, this disc is very likely the very first time the names passes through the Hallowed Halls Of Metallian Towers. Yes, their promotion and publicity has been that strong.
Moreover, the music is strong and a good kick to the old power pack. Should the earlier material for the band be as strong as the 11 songs on Alles Verboten (German for 'everything is banned') then the travesty multiplies.
The four bandits/biker/tough guys bear that image and deliver music to match. Suicide Generation has that early Motörhead feel with the hard punk edge that made the Brits so famous. The music is raw, has an edge and cares less about much. Deadly Bitch has a superb solo, as does other favourite track Father Ralph. These are fun tracks that are anything, but clean. If the punk metal sounds don’t sound appealing check these titles out: Frankenstein Food, Witchy Suicide Wildcat, Metal Bullets, Rock And Roll Barbie and Satan Vs God. High energy guaranteed. - Ali “The Metallian”
