At the tail end of 2012, current Demon members Neil Ogden and Paul Hume felt a new project was needed to shake up rock music on the European circuit. Joined by Persian Risk guitar maestro Howie G and HeadrusH bassist Josh “Tabbie” Williams, LAWLESS have an 80’s anthemic classic rock vibe which has been brought right up to the 21st century with the hooks all rock and metal fans are crying out for. With influences from the likes of Gotthard, Y&T,Dio, Saxon, Scorpions and many more the band focus on catchy vocal melodies backed by soaring harmonies and meaty riffs which is driven by pounding bass and thumping drum work.The quartet from North Staffordshire, England are taking European rock and metal market by storm with there 11 track debut album "Rock Savage" which was released on the 19TH JULY 2013 via escape music to rave worldwide reviews.METAL FORCES MAGAZINE :-"can you resist another spin of this 80's influenced rock? i can't"8/10 FIREBRAND MAGAZINE :- "this debut album hits the spot and places lawless as one of the top hard rock bands to watch out for this year" 10/10 MELODIC ROCK .IT :-"you cannot be disappointed with a delicious dish like this" 9/10 PAUL DEAN MYGLOBALMIND:- "this is an incredible album one of the best i've heard for quite some time".In there short history the band have already had regular airplay on planet rock the uk's largest rock radio station not to mention many smaller independent stations with reviews and interviews in UK magazines such as fireworks magazine ,firebrand magazine etc… ,the band played several headline shows during the tail end of 2013 and a UK tour in march alongside Coldspell from sweden which included dates at the HRH-AOR festival wales and the legends festival in great yarmouth and several independent major clubs around the UK ,the bands 2nd album R.I.S.E is due to be released 21st november 2014 through escape music followed with a uk and european tour including planet rock radios "rockstock" festival in december ,there are more shows and festivals confirmed throughout 2014-15.

Album:

I think a majority of people who first saw the band name and that album title probably thought this was going to be some type of Steel Panther sort of metal parody. What with so many bands attempting to recreate the 80s it wouldn’t have surprised me either, but Lawless are a very different kettle of metal.This UK quartet is fronted by Paul Hume, who you may know from classic metal band Demon. Hume is also accompanied by Demon drummer Neil Ogden, so immediately I’m drawn to this opus, wondering if this is going to be a slab of vintage rock or something altogether different.Well, Hume also plays guitar, but the leads for the band are provided by Persian Risk axeman Howie G., and the thunder bass comes courtesy of Josh ‘Tabbie’ Williams (HeadrusH), so these ingredients should give you a clue that Lawless are very much a hard rockin’ band.According to the press release, Lawless was put together by Ogden and Hume at the end of 2012 to “shake up rock music on the European circuit”, and one spin of this suggests they’ve achieved their goal. Whether it’s intended or not I don’t know, but Rock Savage takes me right back to the late 80s – late night radio, sweeping rhythms, and sultry vocals – and the polished production of Hume and Ogden is just right for this type of heavy rock.“It’s Friday night, the beats alright, we don’t care if you don’t get it” croons Hume on ‘Heavy Metal Heaven’ over a killer rockin’ riff and I’m there, right back in those magical days. Lawless are a real metal band. Sure, it’s on the lighter side, which is why it fits into that late 80s scene which bridged the gap between classic rock and hair metal, but once you hear those soaring vocals and the lines “We’re livin’ in a heavy metal heaven”, you’ll be wishing you never sold those Whitesnake and Scorpions albums.It just about sums up heavy metal that only the veterans of the scene can save us from the mediocre revival acts and great pretenders. Lawless is a band high on melody but it’s not just about the softer side of rock. Howie G.’s solos are staggering, pure metal magic as he saunters across the ears on ‘Black Widow Ladies’, a typically 80s yet crisp, simmering track with its slow building tempo, tumbling drums and that Whitesnake type of pomp.However, the band also effortlessly adopt a glam sway to the sound, especially on that sleazy chorus, but if it’s a full-on metal attitude you want then ‘F.O.A.D.’ (hell, I only thought thrash bands adopted the term “Fuck off and die”?!!) will have you rockin’ into the night. The same could also be said for the drivin’ ‘Misery’ with its ferocious guitar, but where the band really does shine is on the archetype hair metal candle waver ‘S.O.S.’. Paul Hume’s vocals are incredibly warm and sultry as the guitars cut deep and build to that immense chorus. Coupled with the pensive drums and enigmatic solos, ‘S.O.S.’ is hard rock played for keeps – the quartet showcasing their talents but also able to combine a modern, polished feel with traditional rock shades.‘Rock ‘N’ Roll City’, ‘Step In’ (with its Def Leppard-meets-hair metal party swagger) and the weighty ‘Scream’ give the listener such a variety of moods to tune into, all bolstered by that soulful vocal and constant driving weight.‘Where Heroes Fall’ is a huge, sweeping metal track that builds to an expressive crescendo, but the band can’t leave the speakers without reminding us what we’re here for, and the pounding ‘Metal Time’ transports us back to those Twisted Sister days of rockin’ rebellion with that cheeky guitar sound and Hume’s lively vocal. “When the bell rings, only one thing on his mind… it’s metal time!”, Hume wails, and we’re delivered with a thump back to reality. But can you resist another spin of this slab of 80s influenced rock? I can’t.
