The band has sweet guitar riffs, heavy bass lines and a chick singer! Make that a chick singer with dark hair.
Damone formed a couple years ago around Boston. After some hard work they ended up on the Island label. I have to say I found Damone by a fluke. I was clicking through Myspace pages. Click, click, click until I come upon someone or something I don't know. The band had a song featured on Madden 2007 which helped make them sort of famous. (I looked that up by the way. I never play video games). They've had some songs on soundtracks too...and I imagine they are popular with the kiddies.
Anyway, I bought the album Out Here All Night, featuring the song "Outta My Way" which Damone wrote about Poison. Not every Damone song is overtly Glam. There's alternative and nu-metal here too. Some other tracks I dig on Out Here All Night are "You're the One" and "What We Came Here For."
The main thing is that the songs just don't suck. I can't be any more blunt than that. Quite frankly, I'm sick of music sounding the same. It's like with every new album I feel like I've heard it all before. Maybe that's just what happens after you've listened to so much music. At any rate, discovering Damone was an unlikely lifeline. I'll take Damone over a lot of bands any day - and yeah, that sure as hell includes the posers Hinder.
