CRASHDÏET picture
CRASHDÏET originally formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2000. Rifts and troubles in the band caused a breakup not long after.

In 2002, half of the band took on new members and the band was reformed.

They slowly built up a fan base with their shows. In 2004 they released their first single. This was followed by more singles, and being featured in TV commercials for mobile phone service provider “Tre”.

The first two songs aren't the good pick by the band as it's among their weakest. I still slightly prefer 'Change The World' to 'Cocaine', but 'Anarchy' is better and probably should be good if they put it out as the opening track. My most fave track here are 'Circus' and 'Drinkin' Without You'. I gave the first 9 and 'Drinkin' a solid 10.

Third best track for me here is 'Sin City', and then followed by 'Excited', 'Got A Reason', and 'Damaged Kid'. Lots of great riffs thrown in here, but sadly there are at least 7 tracks that's in the 7 - 7.5 range (include the first two). 'Lickin' Dog', 'Snakes In Paradise', and 'Garden of Babylon' are the weakest tracks and 'Garden' might be better if it's squeezed into 4 or 5 minutes top. Some fans hated 'Liquid Jesus' but strangely, I like that one. A little punkish with a very good intro and chorus.

Overall, slightly below my expectation and based on around four-five spins, I can conclude that this is weaker than ‘Generation Wild’ and ‘Rest In Sleaze’, but still two steps better than ‘The Unattractive Revolution’ which remains their weakest to date. The production has been a slight issue for me, it's a bit buried, and muddy also might be a good point. This is one of those few albums that gets better after repeated listening and I think a reasonable score should fall around 79%-81%.

Crashdiet is probably the biggest controversy in its genre, with their original singer committed suicide, the second replacement singer left to form a rival band, and now came Simon Cruz, the third singer, blowing a living breath to the band by helping them create a superior album, "Generation Wild", which is on par with their sensational debut. With three singers and three albums, I don't think it's an easy job to survive, but Crashdiet preserved their existence and I must raise a glass of beer for them.

"Generation Wild" is a rare commodity that combined a complete set of elements that I love very much which is the heaviness of early glam, the naughtiness of sleaze rock, and the big punchy anthem of melodic rock. My most fave tracks here are : "Armageddon", a superb dirt digger midtempo sleaze madness with a huge chorus; the title track which can be a soundtrack to the rebellious youth gang; the fiery uptempo track of "Rebel"; the gigantic heavy metal piece of "Down With The Dust"; the commercial melodic hard rock tune, "Chemical"; and the Dokken-fueled "Bound To Fall". I can't find any weak links here, all of them are great and enjoyable, including the mandatory ballads, "Save Her" and "Beautiful Pain".

Simon Cruz has a strong voice, he's truly a gifted singer and the band sealed a very good deal by recruiting him. This magnificent album upped their game again, and for fans of heavy metal, sleaze, and melodic rock, this is your dream album, a tribute to the late Dave Lepard, a must buy!

Bottomline : Swingin' high to the top again

R.I.P. Dave Lepard. A very interesting band,to say the least.A potential heir to the throne of glam rock?Possibly...now,with new vocalist Simon Cruz firmly in place.The new material possesses a very powerful and edgy sound,not what is found on this earlier effort,the band's debut disc. Although Crash Diet hones its chops,recrafting early Motley,Ratt,and other American glam counterparts tuneage,and the production is really nice here,the band fails to deliver any truly memorable,stand out songs.Both lyrically and musically,the band tries again and again,yet continues to fall just short of true greatness. From these earlier efforts,such as IT'S A MIRACLE or BREAKIN' THE CHAINS,it is easy to see why the band chose H.Olliver Twisted (Reckless Love)as the initial replacement after the unfortunate and untimely passing of Dave Lepard.Twisted shares the same poppiness that excudes from these songs.RIOT IN EVERYONE,although a bit edier,again falls short in its delivery of a true and potent glam rock offering. Although the band deserves an A for their effort in keeping the glam scene alive,it's sad to see them unable to deliver the hooks to back up their looks,although definitely a band to keep your eye on and to watch for in the very near future.I sense great things to come!

Crashdiet hailed from Sweden where Backyard Babies and Shotgun Messiah became the country's household names. This young sleaze army hoarded a respectable reputation after "Rest In Sleaze" was released in 2005 and received an admirable appreciation from the glam community. They delivered a colossal megablasting glam metal in the veins of Motley Crue, Ratt, and Guns N' Roses.

The gate to the wonderland was opened with "Knokk Em Down", like a nuclear bomb drop, the music exploded and radiates a deafening sleaze energy with Lepard's voice roaring wild like a prowler seeking his prey. Soon after that, the main attraction came with "Riot In Everyone" burst high with pounding bass lines and screaming siren, followed by an anthemic spirit-burner song of "Queen Obscene". "Breaking The Chains" and "It's A Miracle" are both a lovable commercial slab with a raw twist and joyous melody which only Crashdiet can do. I sense a hint of cruel version of youthful Ratt collided with the violent punky GNR in the mix of "Tikket", definitely a winner that'll made you cry in ecstasy.

The climax of the album are on the last two tracks. "Straight Outta Hell", probably the heaviest load, a pure heavy metal crack with a trace of Judas Priest style. "Back On Trakk" is even more interesting, the chords were empowered with an Iron Maiden-ish riffage and backed with a Def Leppard harmonic chant.

It's a great loss to the scene when everyone was shocked with Lepard's suicidal death in 2006, he's only 26 that time when he had so much in front of him, but life's a bitch sometimes. His place was replaced by Olliver Twisted (which later went on to form Reckless Love) before Simon Cruz jumped in to be their third singer and released "Generation Wild" in 2010. "Rest In Sleaze" is truly an epic debut with a very consistent and remarkable songwriting package, a legacy that defined a real deal of sleaze metal perfection. Buy at all cost!
