This could well become the biggest newcomer of the year! HEAVEN’S BASEMENT are coming out of the UK and they sent me their freakin’ sensational 7-tracks counting mini-CD ‘Unbreakable’. If you’re looking for the next band to beat up well-established 2000s acts like FOO FIGHTERS, WOLFMOTHER and THE ANSWER, well then this HEAVEN’S BASEMENT might be the band you’re looking for.

Actually they used to be called ROADSTAR, under which they released 2 albums, but somewhere along the way they started all over again under this new bandname. They play the big festivals this summer down in their homeland of the U.K. and this new mini-CD sounds huge, partly thanks to the help of legendary US Grammy nominated producer BOB MARLETTE (OZZY, THE STORM, ALICE COOPER, BLACK STONE CHERRY…). The guitarsound is massive and happily the melodies of the choruses are damn catchy and personally speaking this album sounds like one of the best Modern Hardrock albums of the past few years.

They modernize the Classic Hardrocksound of the past with today’s distorted guitarsound and inject the whole thing with some damn fine memorable melodies. If you can only imagine a mixture of the HAREM SCAREM album ‘Mood swings’, FOO FIGHTERS, SOUNDGARDEN and some slight 80s Hair Metal/Melodic Hardrock, well then with songs like “Unbreakable”, “Guilt trips and sins” and “The long goodbye” this HEAVEN’S BASEMENT presents this perfect guitar-orientated Melodic Rock and Roll sound a lot of people will enjoy.
