5nine5 - Hardroll Review

back to reviews

Artist: 5nine5

Album: Hardroll

Released: 2003

A mixture of styles and genres: Alternative Punk Rock


Do you remember a band called Taraxacum? Not bad Hard&Heavy in the 80s style, whose lineup included musicians from Steel Prophet, Rough Silk, Edguy and Squealer? Well, one of the musicians, Danny Klupp, who also played on one of Haggard's albums, also works in other not yet known projects, one of which is 5nine5.
This demo exactly characterizes the band as the band in its infancy, which has not chosen a clear and definite style yet. Yes, it is Hard Rock, but what music would be better for the band to play? Modern Alternative, Punk, classic Hard&Heavy or AOR? This work represents all the above-mentioned styles except AOR. I mean the music is kind of offers a choice to you, something like "we can play this way and we can play that way, choose what you like". I personally like the last track, which is a classic Hard Rock.
As far as the musicians' playing skills are concerned, I am neither an expert nor an admirer of various trendy Punk and Alternative music, and I like some kind of Hardcore or Nu Metal still less, that is why I can't say much about the skills of musicians playing such music. I think Alternative and Punk music utterly primitive. But as to the last track, we can hear good guitars and the keyboards are in place in the background and the voices are very good. Overall the song is very good, and if all songs were in this style, I would require nothing else from this band!
Well, my impression is that the band is actually modern Rock-oriented, with "modern Rock". I mean Alternative and Punk, which is interesting for admirers of these styles namely. But we cannot exclude a possibility of demonstrating some classic elements as well, which may increase the number of people, who might be interested in 5nine5's music.
