HANSEL " Never Say Die"
( Pussycat Records ) 2010.


Glam rock/hard rock/AOR

A five still young Aussie guys , after realization of its EP issue "Mission To Rock", are here again with actuelle full-length offering, entitled maybe bombastic "Never Say Die". But, Hansel are on the other hand a miles away from any "standardized" doomy/metal acts. They are pretty melodic glam/hard rock/AOR band, and its actulle materials confirms mentioned statement. A band has offered 11 pretty complexive, but not boring, and in the same time radio friendly songs, also done maniristically in 80's mood. But, in their case, that is another quality. A band has sounded all the time as a mature and experienced company, and all of present tunes posses convinceble harmonizations and arrangments includings.
A production band has threathed in unclassical way, maybe more as a pedantic pop act, but in the same time complete materials are recorded in maximally modern view, judging by glam/AOR standards."Never Say Die" is maybe unexpectingly very fine Hansel offering, so for them, a new chapter in carearre just begin.

Rating : 8,5/10
