New Band of the Day: CrashDiet


To name them “properly”, they’re Crashdïet – note the umlaut. However you spell/pronounce it, they’re a glam/sleaze metal band from Stockholm. And let me tell you, they both look and sound the part.

They’re not new boys on the scene, having formed in 2002. They have four full-length albums out, a ton of singles and a DVD or two. They also almost called it a day back in 2006 when their vocalist was found dead, but continued on with a new front man and the blessing of the family of the original. This chap lasted a couple of years until current singer Simon Cruz took the well-coiffed mantle.

You can tell from the polished videos and music that they’re going to be a good band live, and I’m definitely keeping my eye out for UK dates. In the meantime, enjoy “Cocaine Cowboys” from their latest album The Savage Playground that was released in January.

More details and stuff to buy via their facefart profile and official website.
