In terms of how Platinum Overdose came to be, bassist Lance V. stated to Sleaze Roxx in an interview posted yesterday: “Yes, I am the architect behind the project and I produced the album. It really started from me listening to some old demos of someone I worked with back in the early ’90s who passed away, and I thought, “What a shame it is that these songs never got recorded or saw the light of day.” So it started off with just wanting to record a couple of songs and put them out. I also really wanted it to sound ’80s. I wanted that Ratt, Dokken, Mötley Crüe guitar sound, big drums layered in reverb — just that big over the top type sound and feeling I got from listening to all the great ’80s bands.
I’ve been friends with Matt Thorr for nearly 20 years and have so much admiration for his work in Rough Cutt and Jailhouse as well as co writing Ratt’s “Back For More.” I approached him first and once he agreed to join me on the journey, we were off. I don’t think people really know how talented Matt really is. There isn’t much he can’t do and I was floored at what a great rhythm guitar player he was. In my mind, he is a musical prodigy. After the first two songs were rough mixed, I knew we had something good and we decided to go for a whole ten song album. We worked on it for nine months and finally got it where I wanted it to be and we as band are all very happy with the result. We hope the listeners will enjoy it.”
