Collateral Damage is rough & dirty ‘80s Style Hard Rock band from Italy, and The Carnival, their 2nd release to date, is a concept album that takes the listener to a circus tent where everyone can confront his or her own fears.  Some of the lyrical impact gets lost in translation and comes through cheesy, but Collateral Damage does a good job of sounding like a garage band of old with plenty of attitude – sort of a cross between early Motley Crue (Too Fast For Love) and early Aerosmith.  This album won’t change your life, but it’s worth a listen.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
