Meltdown Release Début Full-Length Album ‘Boobs are for Heroes’
“Riffs as religion. Boobs as obsession. Cervical destruction. For a world domination !”
-Four knights of sound.
4-piece metal band from Lausanne, Switzerland, Meltdown has just released its début full-length album called “Boobs are for Heroes”. On CD right now in local stores. In waiting for more and full streaming session, digital and web distribution, a first single extracted from the album is available right now with the music video for ‘I Won’t Be Submitted’.
For the record
Founded in December 2011 in Switzerland, Meltdown made its first path on stage a few months later, and after some time working at rehearsals in order to build its own musical style, between rock, metal, funk with funny atmospheres. Comic-core was born and then the band unleashed a music video for its first single ‘Animals’ before recording a first EP called “Learn to Burn” (2013).
Several gigs later in Switzerland or France, Meltdown embarked for a trip around Cuba for the Brutal Winter Fest (2014) and the same year appeared on the “Global domination” compilation by Imperative Music (USA). In 2015, the band released ‘Boobs are for Heroes’
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
