Blending post-grunge aggression with late 1980s Los Angeles-styled pomp, Britain’s Voodoo Six emerges with a disc of well-constructed songs and infectious hooks. Drawing comparisons to bands as disparate as Alice In Chains, Tesla, Aerosmith, and Clutch, the quintet offers a uniquely melodious riff-heavy sound. Voodoo Six was formed out of the ashes of British rock act Dirty Deeds, which received minor acclaim having toured with Iron Maiden. And FIRST HIT FOR FREE is actually a wide-release reissue of the band’s extremely rare debut album, FEED MY SOUL, and remixed by Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Mötley Crüe).
