SANTA CRUZ “Bad Blood Rising”

“Bad Blood Rising”
(Sakara Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I missed SANTA CRUZ when they played live in my hometown in 2016 because I had to work. But I heard from people that were attending the gig that this was a band to keep an ear out for. And with the release of their latest album my ears are firmly attached to this new one. When I listen to this I get vibes from early Mötley Crüe as well as early Skidrow. It is melodic but with one hell of an attitude. As much as I love extreme metal I have a weak spot for sleaze rock like early Crüe. I can’t seem to get enough of it. And that is the exact feeling I get from this album. I cannot get enough of it. There is such a vibe to it that I just sit here with a big grin on my face. This is a worthy successor to the great Hanoi Rocks. Anders Ekdahl
