Sideburn is a Swiss band that plays their brand of Hard Rock in the vein of Bon Scott-era AC/DC. Electrify is comprised of 14 tracks of straight-forward, down-and-dirty Hard Rock with simple (yet creative) riffs and refreshingly catchy lyrics. Roland Pierrehumbert handles the microphone admirably well for this “raw” style of music, at times sounding like a polished version of John Fogerty from the Classic Rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival – all the way down to melding in occasional harmonica play. Overall, Sideburn shows that Hard Rock need not be complicated … in the end, if it’s good, then it’s good.

    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.
