"ALBUM The Damned Things if a few deserve the label ”supergroup”."
"When members from, among others, Fallout Boy and Anthrax, again, to collaborate, the end result is störtskönt."

"nHÅRD ROCK the Term ”supergroup” gives me nausea."
"Partly that the expression creates unreasonably high expectations on the bands allocated to the epithet, and partly to kändisspäckade collaborations is hardly a guarantee of quality in itself."
"just Look at the Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Aerosmith's Joe Perry – the mismatched trio who, according to my colleague Markus Larsson killed the music at the Liseberg amusement park last year."
"Or the supertrista rockkonstellationen Chickenfoot with members from Van Halen and the Red Hot Chili Peppers."
"When I was about ten years ago heard that, among others, Scott Ian, Rob Caggiano, Keith Buckley, Joe Trohman would release an album together, I was, to say the least dubious."
"On the paper, let The Damned Things – the combination of fall Out Boy, Anthrax and Every Time I Die – up the walls is odd."
"But their promising, if slightly tentative, debut album ”Ironiclast” captured clearly my interest."
"After a nine years long break is The Damned Things back."
"At the sharp sequel ”High crimes” delivers the quintet an exciting – and satan's swinging – fusion of punk rock, AOR, heavy metal, 70's rock, stoner, blues rock and pop."
the "Initial ”Cells” sounds like The Killers on the ecstasy. In the catchy ”Something good” of experimenting, the band with the glättig cheerleadersång and Queens of the Stone Age-music. ”Keep crawling” mixes nostalgic retrospective of Jimi Hendrix riffs with a youthful punk rock. And ”Storm chances” brings to mind both Alice in Chains as The Strokes."
"On the disc, you'll also get to hear an adorable side of Keith Buckley, who normally sits on one of the metalcore scene's strongest vocals as the lead singer of Every Time I Die. His charismatic and exuberant singing, which sometimes recalls Mastodon Brann Dailor, charms the hell out of me."
"If there are some who, despite everything, deserves the appellation ”supergroup” as it is The Damned Things.nBÄSTA TRACK: ”Let me be (your girl)”."
