SLAVE RAIDER picture
Slave Raider was an American glam metal band formed in 1985 that was known for its over-the-top antics, heavy make-up and glam song lyrics. In the 1980s, the Minneapolis music scene was primarily known for The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Hüsker Dü and Prince among others. In the Twin Cities, Slave Raider had a sizeable following that were known as The Raid. They opened for such 80s bands as Ratt and Poison with the original line up.

The band recorded three albums in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but were never able to make much of a dent in the glam metal scene of the time due to the beginning of the grunge movement that interestingly, has been attributed to the influence of their fellow Minnesotans, The Replacements.

The band was dropped by its record label following their third album release in 1990 and broke up soon after that with the band

SLAVE RAIDER What Do You Know About Rock N’ Roll

1967/ 1976
Typical Glam Metal album of the 80's, next to Hard Rock, very melodic and rotten. Really beautiful "Youngblood", really well written and worthy of going down in history because is solid and straightforward Rock. Another great song is the Thin Lizzy's cover of "Jailbreak", rotten and powerful. If you love the Glam Metal, "Roller Coaster" is a fine example of Glam Metal, as well as "Is There Rockn'Roll in Heaven". But a true gem is "Iron Bar Motel", which is very POP in the performance, thanks to the backing vocals (and a refrain that enters your head and will not go away) and please me because it is also very hard and rotten, as each Glam Metal hit/ evergreen should be.

The production is made by Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Anvil, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Helloween, Angra, Yngwie Malmsteen, Depeche Mode, Tom Jones, and Concrete Blonde, among others) that focusing on power and cleaning the sound manages to make more melodic the songs, compared to what are the songs. At the same time makes them even more powerful and magic. Because, apart from the songs that I mentioned, the other songs of "What Do You Know About Rock'n'Roll" are not, after all, immortal and already look old.

If you love the 80's Glam this is a good album, after all. It remains, however, one of many good albums of the period with honest songs and masterpieces of the Rock (in general).
