The show was a journey through 25 years of Swiss-made hard rock and after having had some mainstream years the band went back to their roots with playing harder stuff again.
“Kingmaker” is PRETTY MAIDS’ highly anticipated follow up to 2013’s critically and commercially successful release “Motherland”, a record that continued the “revitalized” path that the band set out upon with the now classic album “Pandemonium”. “Kingmaker” is set for release November 4th via Frontiers Music srl. Face The World Video: “Kingmaker” is available for pre-order […]
In 1985 Pretty Maids played the Hammersmith Odeon (September 18th to be precise) as support to British NWOBHM heroes Saxon. The tour on the back of their debut Red Hot & Heavy album promised a return to the UK shortly. To your average Danish hard rock band, shortly equates to 28 years at least for London anyways.
Twenty cigarettes a day and little drink now and then (laughs). Seriously I think singing is also a mental thing, meaning that if you’re mentally on top it makes things easier, singing as well
The bottom line Pretty Maids present us a strong album with their unique music style, some amazing songs (after a few runs) and the variable voice of Ronnie Atkins, so this is a must-buy for fans of this band and fans of Melodic Metal in general. Nevertheless “Motherland” couldn’t fascinate me like “Pandemonium” three years ago. This is due to the permanent use of very modern keyboard-sounds and the fact that the new song material is not so accessible like it could be. All in all it’s a worthy follow-up to “Pandemonium”. Buy it!
As usual Gary Hughes himself manages to give a fantastic performance and really shows his keen knack for being able to get the most out of the confines of his limited vocal range…
ow Pretty Maids aren’t at the level of success of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, or Poison completely baffles me. Barring the band’s name itself (the general consensus when I tell my friends about them is that the band’s name is terrible,) you will find no group that has more consistently released incredible music from their first album to their most recent.
If you must know Pretty Maids the famous Danish Hard Rock group has roamed the genre realm since 1983 when they release they’re breakthough debut “Red, Hot and Heavy” since then the band has received critical acclaimed and to be sincerely honest I don’t believe they have released one bad release in they’re long career in the scene. Records like “Future World” and “Spooked”…
