All Behind You

All Behind You
(Brennus Music - 2000)

The French band was founded back in 1998 by guitarist Alex Rankovic. A few line-up changes and then he found his current members, on bass Dominique Kulibanov, drummer Olivier Guyot and singer Bob. In July 2001 they recorded All Behind You with producer Rouslan Tsar who also plays a guitar solo on How Can I Say?! The quartet offers heavy rock / melodic metal in the vain of Pink Cream 69, Dokken and Danger Danger, the guitars partly remind of progressive metal bands... Check out No One Knows, Hard Times or the ballads Your Number One and How Can I Say? or their cover version of Billy Idol's Rebel Yell, this time in a hard / heavy rock version. I heard bands cover this before, but this is a pretty nice version!
Finally I can say that Voodoo Smile has recorded a decent debut. The French do this as good as their colleagues from the other side of the Atlantic. Nothing new, but who can re-invent hard / heavy rock these days?
