Tesla release video for title track of new album ‘Shock’
Sacramento, California, USA rockers Tesla consisting of lead vocalist Jeff Keith, guitarists Frank Hannon and Dave Rude, bassist Brian Wheat and drummer Troy Luccketta have released a video for the title track of their latest studio album Shock, which was released via Frontiers Music Srl last week.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of the album Shock: “It is pretty darn good! Every one of the concerns about the production were valid. The album IS softer overall than most Tesla albums, especially the 21st century releases. There is some rampart overproduction that detracts from the songs. And, sort of cementing the last point, there is a lot of Def Leppard styled backing vocals that occasionally are used in place of Jeff Keith that pull a little away from the organic feel of the song’s energy. Those are the negatives. There, I got them out. Now, the good news. The songs are well written, sound big and fresh, and — perhaps best of all — Collen has gotten the best vocal performance from Jeff Keith that we have heard in years. I mean, singer Jeff Keith sounds incredible on this record and I don’t think many will argue me on that statement.”
Sleaze Roxx concluded in its review: “Overall, Shock is a good record. A little soft at times. But, it holds up to the Tesla classics well. If you’re a fan of Tesla from the glory days, this album slides in to that collection easily. If you are looking for a more dirty, heavy sounding Tesla like Into The Now or Forever More, this one has some stuff for you but is certainly a departure from that direction. But, this is not a modern Def Leppard album as many had feared. Those that want to pan the album as such will have plenty to point at on the record to support their negativity. But, those who give it a chance will find a really good collection of songs with a really talented band and a singer who sounds better than he has in years thanks, in part, to producer Phil Collen.”
