    For fans of : Aerosmith, AC/DC, Nickleback, Creed, Daughtry

    Brighton's New Device are signed to Powerage Records, the newish record company from Classic Rock magazine, as you might expect, all their bands straddle the classic rock/metal genre, but the roster has a wide variety of styles. The current Powerage line up is Bigelf, Electric Mary, Endeverafter, Hell City Glamours, Lethargy, Pearl, Pride Tiger, Viking Skull and New Device.

    New Device released Takin' Over towards the end of 2009 and as debut albums go, it's a real gem, packed with sharp guitars, fast riffs, catchy hooks and big choruses. New Device make no bones about their style of music, they see themselves as stadium rockers and have out to produce, and have achieved, an album full of populist hard rock that should have a broad appeal.

    There are some front men for whom every gig is a sell out at Wembley, it doesn't matter that they are performing to a hundred people in a small pub in North Wales…

    The Answer with Hell City Glamours at the Annandale Hotel, Tue 20 Mar

    Went to the 'dale on a Tuesday to check out the guys from Northern Ireland, missed the first band almost entirely saw about half their last song.

    Hell City Glamours, not a great band, ok more going for them than Airbourne but that's not saying anything, found their 70s hair metal sound boring and dull if you like that kind of thing then these guys are for you, I give them a meh

    The Answer are also an old style metal band but with a strong blues undercurrent, sometimes the blues takes charge as well, such as in their second song of the set when in between the intro and coda in stardard hair metal style was a complete 12 bar progressive blues song I found this kind of strange wondering if they were making a homage to BB King. The blues pervaded the entire set giving me something to hook into…
