SMACKBOUND is a new Finnish metal band, with some familiar faces from the scene such as Rolf Pilve (STRATOVARIUS), and Teemu Mäntysaari (WINTERSUN), session vocalist Netta Laurenne, and members from TRACEDOWN. The band started out as the cover band RUN FOR COVER, in order to already play live while they were working on original material in the meantime.
If you like music with an attitude, reminiscent of acts like DEEP PURPLE, WHITESNAKE, JUDAS PRIEST, and DIO, then SMACKBOUND‘s first single “Drive It Like You Stole It” definitely is your cup of tea. The hard rock/heavy metal-inspired track contains heavy-ass riffs, outstanding keyboard sections, and a killer guitar solo. If you are not blown away by the instrumental track, then you will certainly be by Netta Laurenne‘s fantastic vocal delivery.
“Drive It Like You Stole It” also has a motivational message, it tells about self-empowerment, it encourages to stop living in fear and urges to find your own strength. It’s definitely an uplifting track, that can ease your mind when you’re feeling down.
