Sick, rotten and fucking! This is "Slave To The Grind" 2nd Skid Row album. A perfect album if you love Kiss and Metallica! An album with Blues in veins and Thrash Metal in mind with a great Speed Thrash Metal track "Slave To The Grind" and a great emotional power ballad "Wasted Time" (Error, in my opinion, put it as close track!). The band, already perfect on the first album, in this "Slave To The Grind" decides to become even more gear and more for this American (but already it was), so that "Slave To The Grind" becomes a timeless album! Van Halen, Ted Nugent or Kiss began a type of music that bands like Cinderella, Poison, Bon Jovi and Skid Row led to the top of success. "Slave To The Grind" is, after all, an album remarkable in blending Blues, Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Punk, etc... in an explosive and romantic bomb. Willingly I listen to songs like "Quicksand Jesus" or "Wasted Time", good examples of power ballads (with Blues in vein), like "Slave To The Grind", a clear example of Speed Thrash Metal, without listening to stylistic differences, a sign of superior musicians and composers.
Trying to describe "Slave To The Grind" is not easy: follow'd better listen, analyze it, love it. Why, then, should not be classified albums like this!
