I've been on the fence about Crashdiet for awhile now. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get into a band that had no lead singer. You see, frontman Dave Lepard died a year ago. This past weekend, the remaining members of Crashdiet announced his replacement: H Olliver Twisted.
If you're unfamiliar, Crashdiet is a Swedish glam rock sensation (I need to move to Sweden)!
Their album, Rest in Sleaze has garnered great reviews and helped the band gain a pretty good fan base. H. Olliver Twisted will split his time between Crashdiet and his other band, Reckless Love. If you'd like to hear some audio samples, head over to www.crashdiet.org.
Crashdiet is making waves in the glam movement. They are the only sleaze rock band in over a decade to land a major label deal, signing with Universal. I say, rock on!
