ELECTRIC PASSION by Freerock Saints
(Grooveyard Records)

Blues based rockers from Greece, Freerock Saints return with their energizing sophomore effort, 'Electric Passion'. Just like their smoking debut outing, 'Blue Pearl Union', the band serve up a premium blend of hard driving riffs and passion filled vocals that will hit you right between the eyes. It's, raw, energetic, soulful, imaginative and boundary-pushing. Fronted by the awesome vocal talents of Areti Valavanopoulou (whose vocals remind me of a hybrid mix of Lynne Jackman from Saint Jude and Dale Krantz from Rossington-Collins), along with from Super Vintage/Universal Hippies, Stavros Papadopoulos on the guitars. This recording doesn't have a dull moment on it. You can play it straight from beginning to end without wanting to skip anything. From the second, "Made For Freedom" fires out of your speakers the band have your undivided attention and having you craving for more and they deliver the goods in spades. "Reason To Live", the adrenaline powered, "Rocking In The Fast Lane", "Sing Child" and the down dirty swagger of, "Blind" are all guaranteed to get your rock and roll adrenaline pumping in no time! Raw-bones rock music that is pack with swagger and passion. Influenced with a classic rock sound without rehashing someone else's back catalog. The bottom line here is, The Freerock Saints are the real deal,  and they rock like a Mother!
