Melbourne’s Massive claim to play “Fist-swinging, riot-starting, girlfriend-stealing, punch-in-the-face rock’n’roll,” which seems like an appropriate assessment.
Massive: Full Throttle
Re-release of Aussie rockers’ storming debut album
That the quartet have tacked covers by AC/DC (If You Want Blood [You’ve Got It]) and Aerosmith (Rats In The Cellar) onto this re-release of their independently-released 2013 album should offer a decent clue to their source materials; that they have the chutzpah to write a song about Hollywood from thousands of miles away speaks volumes about where their heads and hearts are. Full Throttle is a terrifically apposite title for an album that simply roars from the speakers, and while only a fool would claim that Massive are boldly pushing hard rock into new spaces, their energy and enthusiasm is utterly infectious and their songwriting is supremely assured. Nice work, gentlemen.
