CD NEW AND SEALED

Founded by Canadian singer and guitarist Serge Simic, the band combines seventies-inspired riffs, an extremely engaging groove and highly inspired melodies in a sound recipe that takes its cue from that of great names of the past such as Kiss, Black Sabbath, Boston, Rolling Stones, AC / DC and Led Zeppelin. ‘Hit It’ was mixed in Los Angeles by the well-known producer Fabrizio Grossi (Steve Vai, Alice Cooper), who immediately realized the potential of the band, capturing its essence in an album that has been able to attract the attention of none other than the “Voice of rock” Glenn Hughes, special guest, behind the microphone, in the song ‘Little Angel’

Hit It

  1. From Metalitalia: I The Slam sono una nuova band nata dalla mente di Serge Simic, chitarrista/cantante di origine canadese, perdutamente innamorato della musica hard rock più tradizionale e sanguigna. “Hit It!” è il disco d’esordio per questa nuova formazione dedita ad un sound che amalgama alla perfezione l’irruenza carnale degli anni Settanta con soluzioni melodiche figlie della decade successiva. Su “Hit It!” si alternano episodi squisitamente ammiccanti (“Wild Rite”, “Tears In The Rain”) e piccole gemme di rock settantiano come “Little Angel”, dove per l’occasione è stato reclutato al microfono niente meno che Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Country Communion). The Voice Of Rock, come sempre, offre una performance magistrale: la sua voce calda e potente rende il pezzo unico ed inimitabile, nonché la vera perla del disco. Già, perché i restanti capitoli partoriti dai The Slam, seppur di qualità quasi discreta, non possiedono la magia e l’ispirazione tale da ambire al ruolo di hit in grado di far decollare il disco. Riff, melodie e ritornelli, certamente gradevoli, sanno di già sentito, specialmente ripensando alle centinaia di release uscite nei decenni scorsi. Trovandoci di fronte ad un disco di debutto, non possiamo che ribadire la presenza di buone idee che, opportunamente levigate a suon di lavoro ed esperienza, potrebbero permettere a Serge Simic e compagni di stupirci in un futuro prossimo.

  2. Frome Sleazroxx: Canadian raised Serge Simic is the brain behind newcomers The Slam, and what a debut effort he has delivered with Hit It! With soulful vocals and a hard hitting back end, The Slam should quickly become a hard rock band to keep an eye on.

    Anyone who has read this website for awhile knows of my love for Little Caesar and the distinct vocals of Ron Young, which explains why the opening tack on Hit It! immediately caught my attention. “Wild Ride” would have fit like a glove on Little Caesar‘s Influence release as the song has that same bluesy hard rock feel to it. “Bad Blood” is much the same but offers a heavier edge, not unlike what Hair Of The Dog attempted a decade ago with their modern take on an old sound. Then comes “Tears In The Rain”, a song that doesn’t immediately grab your attention but comes together nicely during the chorus — it really is tailor made for modern-rock radio. “Kisser” on the other hand reminds me of another Canadian band named Stampede Queen with its foot-stompin’ beat, tongue in cheek delivery and KISS inspired riffs. Meanwhile “Push On” and “Saddle In The Moon” are two tracks that Danko Jones would be proud to have in his arsenal.

    For publicity sake (or so I am guessing) the ‘Voice of Rock’ Glenn Hughes takes over on lead vocals during the song “Little Angels”, but to be honest he isn’t needed because Simic‘s delivery is every bit as strong as Hughes — maybe even better! But if the inclusion of Hughes convinces a few more listeners to give The Slam a chance it’s all worth it, because this new group deserves to be heard by the masses.

    I have to say that Hit It! is a very impressive debut album. It offers a bit of the blues with ample amounts of hard rock, but really it is Simic‘s voice that sets The Slam apart from new bands attempting the same sound — he has a delivery that conjures up images of hard rock’s elder statesmen. And when you mix the voice with strong musicianship and well-written songs you get a winning combination.
