Sleaze N’ Roll Festival in Greece to feature Hell In The Club, BlackRain and others
The Second Skin Club in Athens, Greece will be hosting the Sleaze N’ Roll Festival on October 15, 2016.
The Sleaze N’ Roll Festival will feature a large number of sleaze bands that have been featured on Sleaze Roxx in the past (with links to Sleaze Roxx‘s last article for each group) including BlackRain, Hell In The Club, For My Addiction and Nasty Ratz. Also in the line-up will be the group Silked & Stained.
Sleaze N’ Roll Festival‘s press release via Facebook states (with slight edits and videos added by Sleaze Roxx):
“Sleaze N’ Roll Festival 2016 (BlackRain / Hell In The Club / For My Addiction / Nasty Ratz / Silked & Stained)
French, Italian, Czech and Greek bands, all dedicated to the glam metal sound. Ready to Rock your world in one of the biggest Sleaze festivals in Athens, Greece.
The festival will take place in Athens, Greece in the Second Skin Club at 15th of October 2016
All the bands matter and that’s why we should all be attending the festival at 18.00 so you won’t miss any…
There’s a good reason why, for many years, French rockers BlackRain ended most of their concerts by covering the AC/DC anthem “It’s a Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock’n’Roll)”…
For, having formed in 2006 in the French Alps and with four self-produced albums under their belts, countless concerts in France, Europe and even Japan, these four musicians know for a fact this forthcoming year is undoubtedly the most important part of their career to date. Free from previous past commitments, now they feel like ready to escape to some new territories and have almost logically entitled this new album “Released.”
During nearly 10 long years spent learning the tortuous ways of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the band met a lot of good people – Frank, their so precious drummer; great bands like Europe, Papa Roach, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, Steel Panther, Kissin’ Dynamite and Crash Diet with whom they played; the team of a “New Talent” national TV show where they delivered memorable live performances to an audience of several million; Famous photographer Dean Karr responsible of the new band pictures; and last but not least American producer Jack Douglas, known for his work with Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, The New York Dolls and even John Lennon… a true music “legend” who provided all of his good old fashioned experience to the making of their 2013’s effort “It Begins” as well as on this brand new album : “Released”. He really applied his magic touch to the whole process. And to complete the circle it’s Warren Huart, Aerosmith’s sound engineer who, along with Jack, mixed these new BlackRain songs at the Spitfire Studio in Laurel Canyon.
This gang has grown up with the sounds of WASP, Guns N ‘ Roses, Skid Row, Ratt and Mötley Crüe!!

FOR MY ADDICTION
For My Addiction – formerly known as ”Addiction” – is a hard rock/heavy rock band, formed on April 2014 in Athens,Greece.
FMA was formed when lead singer/rhythm guitarist Vaine and bassist Nikotinn left their previous band, and along with drummer Chris Rox, they decided to form a new band and create the music that has always been there, ringing in their heads. Lead guitarist Costas Varras joined later on but for personal reasons he left the band a few months later, and was then replaced by lead guitarist Rizzy.
For My Addiction‘s main influences are hard and punk rock bands from the 80’s and 90’s and it’s music is a mix of a modern hard n’ heavy sound with glam and punk elements.
On June 1, 2015 , FMA self-released it’s debut album ‘Addiction‘, and managed to gain many positive reviews from European and American press.
FMA had its first ever live appearance on September 6, 2015 opening for the German heavy metal band Bonfire, at Kyttaro Live Stage in Athens,Greece. Few more shows in Greece followed and on February 27, 2016, FMA had the honour to participate in Sleaze Festival, which took place at Matrix Venue in Bochum, Germany, opening for some great bands such as Kissin’ Dynamite, Toxic Rose and The Cruel Intentions.
On June 11, 2016, For My Addiction shared the Metronum’s stage in Toulouse, France with French power metal band Manigance, leaving good impressions and a promise to return in France the soonest possible. While the band is now focusing on the next album, which is said to be released by the end of 2016, FMA is also planning some more shows in Europe to grow the
band’s fan base and let the world know and listen to FMA‘s music.

The band Nasty Ratz started in Prague (CZ), September 13th, 2012. In the beginning, Jake Widow (behind the microphone and rhythm/lead guitar) and Rikki Wild (behind the drums) started a band based on powerful stage performances using pyros, make-up and wild music with a punk rock vibe. The inspiration was pretty clear. Rikki’s drum parts were rolling like a stone and their influences such as Phil Rudd, Eric Singer, etc. were more and more hearable. Also, Jake’s pitching the high notes could remind KISS, Mötley Crüe, Crashdïet and more. Nasty Ratz got a chance to play a few times with Adam Bomb (USA), JunkYard 69 (GR), Sandness (IT), etc. in the Czech Republic and with Crazy Lixx (SWE), The Last Vegas (USA), Confess (SWE).
In May 2015, the band started recording the full-lengh album called “First Bite” which was recorded for money of fans participating pledge campaign. Plus, the album is released by a bigger label “Sleaszy Rider” worldwide.
