Animal Alpha

Titel / Title You Pay For The Whole Seat But You´ll Only Need The Edge 
Label Racing Junior/Urbanited Recordings

Total run time

Just judging visually by the band photo, one might expect a Rocky Horror Show / German Industrial Goth crossover, luckily this is not quite the case. The music of Animal Alpha has much more to do with Backyard Babies and/or My Chemical Romance: Quite aggressive progressive Rock´n´Roll with influences of Emo-Punk. Just the opener - also the title track of this CD - has a lot of "Swedish" groove and punch.

The quartet from Norway features a quite variable female singer, who learned a lot from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers ("Master Of Disguise"). Another comparison that pops up is Skunk Anansie´s Skin, especially when listening to the softer parts in "Fire!Fire Fire!" or "In The Barn". Still singer Agnete maintains a touch of evil, even quite cynical ("Breed Again") or with some humour ("Tricky Threesome"), balancing her high clean voice on a pretty rough edge. But all things considered, it is a German act that seemed to be an inspiration for Animal Alpha - so if you loved the Guano Apes, you will definitely like this CD.
