FURIA LOUCA – Furia Louca

 

 

Self Release (Release Date – Out now)

A bit of Brazilian melodic rock is what is on offer on this release. The band have been around since 2005 and this is their first release. The guys have honed their skills over the last 7 years and they make a decent racket with a hair metal/ sleaze rock vibe.

Decent is the word though as there is nothing really remarkable or memorable over the course of the ten tracks featured. There is a distinct lack of a killer chorus or a steaming riff, you would struggle to whistle one of these numbers after a couple of listens.

The nearest the band come to producing something of real interest is on the track ‘Cohatrac City’ where they raise the energy levels and belt out the lyrics in their mother tongue. Other than that though there is nothing to get the juices flowing I’m afraid.

With this release I doubt whether Furia Louca will be hitting the big time. They are like a Hyundai Getz in a way, it will get you from A to B with little fuss or excitement whilst Furia Louca will rock you but in a very civilised and utilitarian way. All function, no fun.
