V8 Wankers – Iron Crossroads

Releasedate: 18-04-2011; Label: Steamhammer / SPV
By: Sabine van Gameren

The German rockers of the band V8 WANKERS will release their sixth album “Iron Crossroads” through Steamhammer / SPV.

The album was produced by Tommy Newton (Helloween, Terry Hoax, Guano Apes, UFO and many others) and the band claims they sound ‘better and fresher than ever before’. Whatever they say, the band got this strong Heavy Metal feeling over them and it falls good. Climb your bike, jump in the car “Iron Crossroads” on the play and before you know you crossed half Europe. Guitars are quite upfront, here and there a solo but mostly accompanied with vocals singing the catchy lyrics. It reminds me of a male version of Skew Siskin. A little punk influences come with it as well which makes it such a wonderful album to for the summer. The lyrics have a little humor in them, which maybe not all may catch, but it certainly brings a nonchalance in it all. The Germans brought an album that may attract a wide audience, the band has quite a following, but this album is one that may convince many more. “Iron Crossroads” may certainly be one of those albums you keep repeating through the summer.
