THE HOT RAILS is an Ohio/USA based band formed around powerhouse vocalist KEN JANSSEN who travelled all over the world and that is something you can also hear when listening to the band’s CD ‘Single etendre’, which musically has a bit of everything, although it can best be described as groovy guitar riff orientated Classic Hardrock with the vibe of legendary UK bands like CREAM, LED ZEPPELIN, WHITESNAKE, BAD COMPANY and some of the US Southern Hardrock of LYNYRD SKYNYRD and MOLLY HATCHET. What this band is doing is actually very impressive and I am quite sure that the Rock critics are gonna love this record, because it is a lot of balls and grooves not heard in many releases nowadays! The vocals are spot-on and the guitarwork is incredibly heavy, groovy and sensational. 8 tracks are included here and if only it was still 1976, this record could have been a Vinyl Classic!
