If I want a grooving, yet soaring mix of Metal and Rock, I need only to look to Germany for such bands, and BODYGUERRA is certainly a rising star in the field.
Overall this has been a very enjoyable classic rock album. Bodyguerra’s intriguing storytelling definitely adds to the appeal and I’d happily recommend this to any fans of the genre.

With their debut cd the Classic Rockers of BODYGUERRA show, that it is possible to combine hardrock with the present decade. The band-of-four around the guitar wizard Guido Stöcker and lead singer Daniel Seebass offers hardrock at its best, without being nostalgic in any way
The debut album of this german band strikes with a classic hard rock, but with a slight touch of modernity. Contrast the music in this album with the conceptual story based on the famous serial killer Dr. Harold Freddy Shipman, who murdered more than 200 patients before being on trial and committing suicide.
A priori, a story that suits better the sound of Slayer, fits the songs of an energized and consistent hard rock with catchy choruses as in songs like The Retreat, 21 Market Street and Path to Eden.
In No proof for innocence and in the end, we find the most “canero” (sorry, no idea of what this word means!) of the band, meeting heavier rhythms and powerful guitars. Dr. Death has a bluesy touch, with a prominent bass. The catchy chorus in I wanted all rocks you in a slow but explosive way. The power ballad Vera puts an ease end in the album, along with the final Coming Home. A pleasant surprise to find out and watch its evolution.
