This album proves that they have much more gasoline left in the tank.

Few band names belie their music as much as Denmark’s Pretty Maids. Superseding a plethora of contemporaries, they have been hammering out Hard and Heavy Rock for more than three decades. Equipped with an updated sound and production that has combined to add a colossal dimension to their music, their last two albums, ‘Pandemonium’ (2010) and ‘Motherland’ (2012) were met with overwhelming praise from both fans and critics alike... and deservedly so. Thankfully, 2014 is greeted with PM continuing this trend.

However, instead of releasing an album of all new material, the band has decided to release a hybrid of sorts, comprising a select number of re-recordings from their discography spanning 1995-2006 juxtaposed with a handful of new tracks. Although such a move might be considered risky by some, it takes no more than one listen to ‘Louder Than Ever’ to prove they have made another prudent choice. The absolutely sublime treatment given to the previously released tracks with regards to both performance and production elevates these selections to something completely new and fresh. Together with the new material, many will find ‘Louder…’ to sound honest and genuine rather than a rehashing of the past.

Since the release of ‘Pandemonium’, PM are a solid three for three and I cannot wait to hear what they will unleash with their next album of all original material. To further reinforce their "conceptual continuity”, the artwork of ‘Louder…’ possesses a striking similarity to their previous two albums, further reinforcing the idea that PM has settled into a style, vibe and sound with which they are pleased.

Fans impressed with their latest output should do nothing less than scramble to obtain a copy of ‘Louder Than Ever’. Pretty Maids is undoubtedly one band that has endured more industry ebb and flow than most and are now (and more than ever) at the top of their game, firing on all cylinders.

These guys are deserving of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with any of their peers in the Melodic Hard Rock and Metal genres and after more than thirty years, this ensemble proves that they have much more gasoline left in the tank.
