Dirty Fingers is a band from Verona, Italy which was formed back in 2010. After various line-up changes over the years, they released their debut album of gritty hard rock.
Well, with a name like Dirty Fingers, taken from guitar pickups, how would you think these guys sound ? Gritty, sleazy, grimy……..and dirty. I was floored while listening to the album, with song after song becoming better than the last and the band just hitting their stride, it was a treat. So many great solos throughout the entire album made you wonder if they would run out, but no, they just tossed out more riffs. The vocals are perfect, just enough grime and bite to them, the production is done well, with a clarity, but not a smoothing out and the rest of the band adds depth with harmonica, and the tight bass lines and powerful drumming. The sound is a bit of Motorhead and Nashville Pussy, but they manage to make this their own beast, one that isn’t tame and going to cuddle with you, it may just tear you apart.
The mix of hard rock, sleaze, metal and a touch of southern rock is a deadly combination that you will fall onto your knees and worship them for it. This is a band to watch out for, because once you get a taste of them, you can’t stop.
