Juicer is a five-piece orchestra from Norway that plays a potent, energetic and dirty combination of rock, punk and 80’s metal. Born in 2013, when five childhood friends from Trondheim agreed to get together for one reason and one reason only: create dirty rock music. On September 21st 2018 they will release their debut album, entitled Mach IV via All Good Clean Records.
Juicer are fairy unique machine, one that is very well-oiled as the gears get going with Mach IV. The title track kicks things off with a decent rock and roll pace while throwing out these extra musical elements that make the difference.
The vocals are very reminiscent of the likes of Thin Lizzy while the guitars spit out hard rock riffs and the bass reverberates throughout the skull. Saturday Night OD, You Scared Me Straight and Forever is A Long Time show off the promised dirty rock sound of Juicer perfectly. The latter in particular is a highlight with some catchy piano tones and deep bass lines.
Juicer know what they are doing and do it well. The confidence in this band is impressive and their ability to change the formula up on a regular basis makes for an infectious listen. Only the odd forgettable number drags it down but the good tracks are so good that it really doesn’t matter. Mach IV finishes up with the energetic groove of Burrito and On the Move. Ensuring this is an album that will definitely get plenty of more plays as the year comes to an end.
