The Italian hard rock band, Dobermann, are three musicians addicted and born to live life on the road touring and belting out hard rock & roll. They have performed in a long list of live shows during their career while sharing the stage with big names which includes: Great White, Quireboys, Richie Ramone, Blaze Bailey, Chris Holmes, Marky Ramone and Gilby Clarke.

The band released their self-titled debut album in the 2012 and two years later their second album; “Vita Da Cani”. Now they’re back with some new work on an album entitled: “Pure Breed”, to be released through Wild Mondays Music.

The album is opened by the short but rocking track “SPNC”. Followed by “War Thunder” and as the name suggests, this track is just as hard as thunder. The listener is set upon a roller coaster of speed riffs and awesomely great rhythms. “Taking In The Out Takes” is another good track, easy to listen to yet rough enough to satisfy any rock listener. The fourth track “Radioactive” has a bit of an ‘80s sound mixed with some punk undertones. “Pure breed” is a good stab at the listener’s passion for pure rock. This track is featured on the video for the band’s first single.

“I Fucking Hate Drummers” is a good party time song. “I Need A Holiday” reminds more of punk rock in the eighties than hard rock and that is the reason why I like it so much. The rockable sound in “Stuck In Traffic” makes this song so airy and such a funny piece. While the drum intro for “Hometown”, followed by guitars, makes for a good track as well, but different to the previous songs.

What is up to now a good album, “Magic Mountain” is a bit of a disappointment. It is the final song of the album. It ends the album with a pop-rock sound, which seems as an easy commercial cop-out. This track I dislike most, as I know Dobermann can do much better than this. Apart from a disappointing ending, this is a pretty good album. The three band members show their rock style and attitude. Together they are a rock-machine and their “Pure Breed” pedigree is perfect for any hard rock listener.
