Spiders – “Shake Electric” (2014)


Label: Spinefarm Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Spiders are a hard rock band from Sweden. On their second album “Shake Electric” the band combines elements of 70’s influenced classic rock, blues and even a punk rock swagger.

The pounding rhythm of “Mad Dog” starts us off with a bang. “Shake Electric” is next and is just a straight forward heavy guitar rock tune. Other highlights include: “Bleeding Heart”, “Back on the Streets”, the punkish “Control” and the bluesy Janis Joplin-esq “Hard Times”. Vocalist Ann-Sofie Hoyles has a ton of charisma behind the mic. The guitar riffs are huge and definitely showcases their affinity for 70’s hard rock.

At 33-minutes, “Shake Electric” is short, sweet and to-the-point. Spiders hit you hard with their brand of power rock and leave the listener wanting more.
