RockmusicRaider Newsflash - On Top - Top Dollar - Album Cover

Wasn’t I just cruisin’ along these older and newer Hard Rock and Heavy Metal records? Boring down well-worn wormholes to them offerings always does my soul good. And stellar rock and metal they used to produce, and some still do to this day.

So, surfing about my review pipeline later I came across a sound reminiscent to what I just heard. On Top is their name and their new EP Top Dollar is their game.

And by Jove, they come along with a great swagger, throwing their Heavy Metal and Hard Rock infused rock’n’roll at you with a vengeance. A fair dose of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, some (and only some) thrashy snazziness of Metallica, and a hint of Dio. And their influences indeed serve them well.

Add to that a somewhat punk-tainted delivery for some of that and totally irresistible bouts of soloing. And you have this raw, abrasive brand of rock and metal that draws you out, and makes you get with On Top.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the band did not re-invent the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal wheel. But they just rendered it a bit tastier. Cool that. You should have some too.

A dram of Top Dollar for yer listening pleasure.
