Private Line - Evel Knievel Factor

Kaj Roth Format: Album
Release date: 2006-10-26
Label: Edel Records
Genre: AOR
Artist discography


When I did my review of Frail from Finland I mentioned Private Line as one of the bands in the same genre of modern rock/AOR with a touch of gothrock but Private Line are more hardrock/AOR than Frail.
I think it might be better to compare them to bands like Brother Firetribe, Lovex and Pretty Maids.
Private Line?s new album "Evel Knievel Factor" is one size bigger both soundwise and songwise than their debut from 2004.
They open the new album with the title track which is a dynamite rocker in the Backyard Babies vein, the more melodic "Sound ADvice" is more of a modern rock/AOR song with H.I.M influences and the guitar riff on "Prozac nation" sounds like something Rammstein normally puts on record and not a hardrock band from Finland.
The riffs on the bombastic "Alive" are as heavy as a B52 bomber.
Their singer has a voice that is perfect for the 80?s L.A hardrock scene but it sure fits PL?s music too, he sounds like a Vince Neil with lots of singing lessons on his back.
