Kissin’ Dynamite drop video for new single “Only The Dead”
German “stadium” rockers Kissin Dynamite consisting of lead vocalist Hannes Braun, bassist Steffen Haile, and guitarists Jim Müller and Ande Braun, and drummer Sebastian Berg have unveiled a video for their latest single “Only The Dead” from their studio album Not The End of The Road, which was released via Napalm Records backon January 21, 2022.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in one of its two reviews for Not The End of The Road:
“It is hard to come up with my favorite tacks off Not The End of The Road because every song on the album is really good but “Yoko Ono” really stands out. In fact, Kissin’ Dynamite frontman Hannes Braun indicated during the band’s live stream album release concert that he thought the track would be a “live smasher” and I wholeheartedly believe that he is right on point in that regard. Other highlights include the upbeat title track (written as a response to the departure of founding member and drummer Andi Schnitzer), “Only The Dead” with its infectious chorus, “Good Life” with the three guest vocalists (Saltatio Mortis, Thundermother‘s Guernica Mancini and Charlotte Wessels), “No One Dies A Virgin” with the killer guitar solo, and the easy to sing along to “Defeat It” and “Voodoo Spell.” I would be remiss to not mention the gorgeous ballad “Scars” that closes off the album. Wow! Kissin’ Dynamite hit a homer with their ballad “Heart of Stone” off their previous studio album Ecstasy and they have done it again with “Scars.”…
Overall, Kissin’ Dynamite have likely come up with the album of the year. I think it could have been a little better if it was slightly heavier like some of their previous albums but it feels pretty damn close to perfection. There is no need to say that every album in 2022 will be compared with this benchmark record. It is super early in the year to call this but I would not be surprised at all if Not The End of The Road finishes at #1 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2022. Yeah, it’s that good. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I highly recommend this absolutely fantastic album. What a crime it would be for Kissin’ Dynamite‘s Not The End of The Road not to be in your record collection.”
