Out of London, UK comes the sensational new band THE HEAT INC. They are formed around singer Jon Dodd, guitarist Marco Simoncelli and the rhythm section of Nicholas Rigot and Maurizio Vitale, and Asleep in the Ejector Seat is their official first full-length album. Without a doubt, these guys have delivered a champions league album here, because it easily beats all the other rock albums I have heard in 2023! There is a lot of competition and countless bands out there doing a sorta similar rockstyle, but THE HEAT INC. are doing it just a little better, which is thanks to catchy songs, a rich tough rocking sound and a charismatic singer with a voice that immediately makes clear THE HEAT INC. has got something special. I am really excited about this band and if they can cut it live as well, then we are looking at a band that might become one of the big rockbands in the future to come.

The album opens with a dark tough uptempo rocker titled Souvenir, which sounds quite melodic as well, but also a little gothic/post-punk ish here and there, kinda like a mix between THE CULT, BILLY IDOL, THE ALARM and GUN. Following is even better and is quite sensational if you ask me, as this is uptempo melodic post-punkrock at it’s very best, with even memories of THE DAMNED, yet in a modern jacket. These guys sound like the next big thing if you ask me, as the lead vocals of Jon are superb (like a mix between BILLY IDOL, JIM MORRISON and MICHAEL HUTCHENCE, yet with an own identity), the melodies are catchy and their overall tight tough sound fits somewhere between classic punk, post-punk and melodic hardrock. Thankfully the rest of the album keeps the high level of the first 2 songs, with as other highlights uptempo pieces like Little Knuckle Charlie, ’98 (SENSATIONAL!!!, an instant crowd pleaser and radio winner! THE KILLERS eat your heart out!), Ms. Willie Mae and the very melodic Get Wild. The band also draws some inspiration from dark heavy blues rock in a song like This Thing Called Love (ROYAL BLOOD meets RIVAL SONS) and raw dirty mean Garage Rock and Roll can be heard at it’s very best during Akasaka Murder Squad, so there is enough diversity to keep everyone entertained, although they are at their very best during those killer monster uptempo melodic post-punk/heavy rockers that are combined making up the major part of this sensational full-length debut CD of THE HEAT INC.

I am safe to say that this band has got all the potential ingredients that are needed to become a huge band in the future! This record will belong to the best rock albums of 2023 and as aforementioned if they can do this live as well on this studio album, then we need to keep our eyes wide open for THE HEAT INC!
