Mad Margritt: Animal

madmargritt.jpgOne of the best new bands I've heard in a long time is Mad Margritt. Crazy name - great music! We're talking a hybrid between early Van Halen and Def Leppard here Glam fans.

Their album Animal is available on Perris Records. The track listing looks like this:

 

 


Extreme Osculation
Animal
Looking In From The Outside
Don't Say A Word
Loaded Gun
I Don't Think I Love You
Ruling Me
Time

I love "Don't Say a Word," but all the tracks are really top notch.  In addition to the clear Van Halen and Def Leppard influences, you can hear Bon Jovi and maybe even Flock of Seagulls. Mad Margritt knows their audience and definitely plays to their strengths.

Mad Margritt isn't a new band. They released an album in 1997 and more since that time. As you may have guessed, they've played with national Glam bands like RATT and Cinderella. While I'm not lucky enough to say I've seen Mad Margritt live, I'm really optimistic these guys will come near Ohio soon.

When I hear newer bands like Mad Margritt, Lynam, or Vains of Jenna I get really optimistic about the future of glam.

Now, there is a drawback to Animal: the album just isn't long enough! All seven tracks are quality, but I would like to hear a little more. This one is defintely going on the Glam iPod.

Go listen to a few tunes on Mad Margritt's Myspace page. After you fall in love with the band (and I know you will!) go buy the disc. I believe you can buy Mad Margritt albums in stores like Best Buy or through Mad Margritt online .

I am lucky enough to be able to see Mad Margritt frequently since I live in the Atlanta area which is their home. While much of their local stage time is spent doing PRIMO cover versions of all the best hair metal tunes, I have also heard much of their original stuff from their early releases as well as their latest offering ANIMAL. It all rocks as good as the best stuff you have heard from the bigger names. If your local record store does not have Mad Margritt's ANIMAL in stock they can order it for you. This is a must for collectors of killer regional bands.
