Shiraz Lane are 100% pure bred classic metal. If they were around during the days when hair bands were the hippest thing around, they would have sold millions of records. But, no bother, that classic heavy metal sound has been making quite the comeback lately and for the scene to thrive it needs new bands (in addition to new music from the veterans) and that’s where Shiraz Lane will score big points for wearing their influences — like Skid Row and Guns ‘N Roses — on their sleeves. As for their new single, “Wake Up,” it’s pure metal rebellion, beginning with the lyric “fight the power.” But it’s not not a call for anarchy so much as a wake up call for people to realize that “history repeats itself” and that “we’re all part of the human race.” So, it might incite you to damn the establishment, but not without delivering a positive, anti-racism message in the process, which is pretty cool in our book.
