King Mastino- Hold Fast LP. Fuckin’ bad ass rock’n‘roll from the Mediterranean boot. You know these guys from their killer records on Ghost Highway Recordings! This is the second album from Italy’s King Mastino, four lonely sailors with a few scintillating tales to tell. These guys got a pretty cool sound that mixes the riff-heavy, guitar fire power of Radio Birdman and Sonic's Rendezvous Band with the full throttle action rock sounds of bands like the Hellacopters, Gluecifer and the Humpers. The tunes are very well written, the guitar playing is on fire and their singer has a very road weary gravelly voice that just works. Recommended. Import from Italy.
