After WIG WAM’s inglorious end, I expected frontman Age Sten Nilsen to pick up his solo career that he started back in 2009 with the album „Glamunition“. Instead of that he and songwriting-partner Erik Martensson (ECLIPSE, W.E.T.) formed a new band also consisting of Hal Patino (ex-PRETTY MAIDS) and Robban Bäck (SABATON, ECLIPSE) among others. In light of this line-up it the musical direction of AMMUNTION is self-defining. The 12 song feature an extremely high ear candy- and feel good-factor as you know it from WIG WAM. The songwriting moves on constantly high and varied level a la ECLIPSE. And the mix of melodiness and heaviness is on par with the PRETTY MAIDS even though AMMUNITION don’t sound so heavy. Another plus of “Shanghaied” is its sleazy guitar- and its massive drum sound, both reminding me of Mike Clink-productions like GUNS N ROSES and ROXY BLUE. It’s a little unfair to give any song a special mention as the whole album rocks big time, but my personal favourites are the fiery groover “Tie Me Down”, the Folk-influences power ballad “Road To Babylon”, the heavy “Hit Me With Your Bombs” and the vicious rocker “Another Piece Of Me”. I know, the new year has just begun, but I am sure that “Shanghaied” will make its way on numerous best of-lists for 2015. Tracklist: 1. Silverback 2. Give Me A Sign 3. Shanghaied 4. Tie Me Down 5. Road To Babylon 6. Take Out The Enemies 7. Hit Me 8. Do You Like It 9. Wild Kard 10. Another Piece Of Me 11. Heart's Not In It 12. Strung Out
