Teaser - No Big Deal
Normally when I insert a CD-R disk with the name of the band written with a marker I make a combination of a sigh and a smile. This time Teaser seemed to prove me wrong, at first sight.
Teaser is a five member band from Sweden that makes traditional hard rock. First song 'Tease Her' reminds me of the latest Def Leppard album I’ve just reviewed. The guitars are not that spectacular though and the chorus is repeated a little too much but the song has got a nice groove and the vocal lines stick to your head.
Second song is 'Make Up Your Mind', which shows the first real signs of weakness. Although the logical structure makes it easy for the guitarists to show their skills and the double vocal lines make clear that the compositions are well thought off. However, the singer has some strange swipes and places vibrations at the very wrong places. When 'Guilty of Love' starts, I really get freaked out and all of a sudden the decent rock seems like a big copycat from a bunch of overenthusiastic men. But then again, they probably agree with such a demo title.
