Don’t believe the rumors of a breakup! After taking some well deserved time off, Hardcore Superstar are back and better than ever! The fourth album, simply self-titled, is quite possibly their best record to date. Hardcore Superstar formed in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1997 with members Jocke Berg (vocals), Thomas Silver (guitar), Martin Sandvik (bass) and Magnus “Adde” Andreasson (drums). This album is nothing short of a rock n’ roll powerhouse of a record, songs with the stylings of Motley Crue and AC/DC rolled up in their own glammed up sound.

“Wildboys” was one of the singles released for this album and it sets the mood for the entire record; sex, swagger, attitude, rock. This song gets down and dirty showcasing the larger than life sound the band is producing on this album. “We Don’t Celebrate Sundays” is loud and fast with Berg’s vocals thundering about and carrying the tune to new heights. Berg’s vocals howl and hypnotize sealing the overall sound of the band. “My Good Reputation” is a good party, almost pop sing along song. Then where you see the pure AC/DC reference come out is the track “Blood On Me”, what a killer track. Hard hitting, energizing rock n’ roll. This album is nothing but incredible from start to finish. There is just no denying this record, they took a break and were reborn into this incredible rock n’ roll machine. There is a little bit of something for everyone on this record, but be prepared this is much harder than their previous releases. The guitar licks shatter your ears, the beat moves your hips and the vocals make you scream for more. Prepare to play this album on repeat for days, they are superstars in their own right, now get me a cigarette, I’m spent!
