Scarlet Violet


Italy is beginning to rival Sweden when it comes to the resurgence of Glam bands.

Scarlet Violet is a great Italian band trying to make it big. Their demo Ready to Rock definitely pays homage to classic 80s bands, while using benchmarks of the modern Glam sound.  

 The track listing for Ready to Rock looks like this:

Back On A Bend
Bad Reputation
In Front Of You
Dirty Little Whore
Ready To Rock

These Milan natives actually have talent and look good to boot. I really like the songs "Bad Reputation" and "Ready to Rock," but the entire effort is very strong. I hear remnants of both Poison and Crashdiet here, so you know these songs must be good. Furthermore, the guitar work is just darn impressive. Guitarist Fylo really knows his way around an axe. In fact, he's so good, it wouldn't surprise me if his solos become the focal point of a live Scarlet Violet show.

Perhaps most surprising of all is that Scarlet Violent remains an unsigned band! The cute quartet got together to independently release Ready to Rock.  With the right marketing, Scarlet Violent could be very viable here in the United States. Someone with connections needs to give these kids a chance. In the meantime, I'll keep listening to the EP.
