Norway - Full Moon 86 - 10/10/03
Racer Age EP
Racer Age is a new band around, based in Oslo/Lørenskog, with four lads who's been in
several bands before the formation of this quartet. Some members used to be in a band called
Hippotrip, but this outfit is a bit heavier
Inspired by 70s hardrock, 90s grunge and present heavier stuff (rock, not metal, and definitely
not the 'nu' shite!). They present plain and simple melodic rock. With a groove and punch. Basic,
hard rock. Fact. The three songs on their debut show a pro band proving instrumental skills, and
decent vocals that go well with their sound. The band are: Blizzter on lead vocals and guitar, Eddie
Christ on bass/backing vox, George Slumber on lead guitar/backing vox, and drummer Slügger.
"Poor little bastard", "Wake up, people" and "Time to dive" aren't mindblowing stuff, but they
tend to grow better and opt for some slow headbanging. Too bad I recently cut my hair...
