The most successful bands in the musical cosmos are the ones which have held fast to their musical roots for decades, scarcely or never swerving from their basic style. Reaching musical compromises may be seen as innovative, but the true soul of Rock'n'Roll is spread by those bands who simply do their own thing. This, the truly granite "rock" of rock'n'roll has been even more firmly embedded by bands such as MOTORHEAD, AC/DC, ROSE TATTOO and THIN LIZZY. Having said that, there are remarkably few bands these days who keep to this tenet. One of them is the Adrenalin Power Rock band Gun Barrel, from Cologne/Germany, who have just rolled their fourth album, 'Outlaw Invasion' to the start line. As the title suggests, the Colognians are sticking to their "Outlaw" status and always transfer this extremely well onto their albums. 'Outlaw Invasion' is built on rigorous guitar attacks, traditionally designed song structures, bitingly clear songwriting and a ton of power.
