German rockers, Adrenalize unleash their self titled album upon the world. If you like traditional hard rock vocals (sometimes high pitched) with a real classic rock sound, Adrenalize will likely be just what you are looking for. The first three songs on "Adrenalize" are among the stronger on the CD with lots of great melodies and a consistent pace throughout. After the short intro, 'Rock and Roll' put things clear what this band is all about, its title says all. 'Breakout' rocks good with nice guitar work, and 'Ship Of Fools' is even better with its excellent dual guitar harmonies. 'With You' provides variation as this is a slower, mid-tempo semi-ballad in the early Eighties British style, yet the group rocks again soon with 'Keep Holding On', perhaps the more melodic hard rock tune on the album with a catchy chorus.
'Hot Nights' is the most 'Americanized' track here with a mid-Eighties touch, while 'Bitter Pill' deliver some scorching guitar solos towards the end.  "Adrenalize" is solid classic hard rock with a vintage feel, and while at places the lead vocals are too much over the top, overall Adrenalize have served up some quality classic rock music on their debut album.
If you’re interested in purchasing the CD, it appears that the only way might be from the band directly and I think that would be money well spent if you like the genre.

Rating: 8/10
