Dynasty have really hit their straps on this, their second full length album. With a slick and polished production that never detracts from the raw ROCK-ness of the songs, “Knock you Down” shows that these Swedes are here for the long haul.

 

The big winner here, alongside the excellent production, is the songs – melodic, meaty, anthemic, hummable. Killers like ‘Hunger For Love’, ‘Get It On’ and ‘Throne Of China’ don’t come along every day!

 

Rob love’s guitar work is sinewy and muscular, and this boy must have got very sore fingers recording this album because his solos simply shred so hard. Joel Fox and George Egg’s rhythm section is full of groove and power, and never misses a trick. Nils Molin is a singer from the Joe Lynn Turner school – clear and full throated, his vocals deliver memorable melody after memorable melody, and when fully assembled Dynazty can give any other melodic hard rock band a solid run for their money.

 

Definitely a keeper!
