Product Description

Famous Underground is the new project of Nick Walsh, formerly frontman of Slik Toxik, together with his long-time bassist/musical partner Laurie-Anne Green. Folks that remember life before grunge may recall the Canadian hard rock outfit kicking up a proverbial storm in the early '90s. Slik Toxik achieved Gold status in Canada with their full length Sleaze-Glamrock-debut "Doin' The Nasty" and took home the 1993 Juno Award (Canada's version of the Grammy) for Best Album of The Year. Sadly, in spite of their success, Slik Toxik called it quits in 1995 as grunge tightened its hold on the music scene. Nick Walsh and lead guitarist Rob Bruce formed the modern rock/hardrock band Raised On Mars, and together they released a self-titled debut. Walsh went on to form the hardrock band Revolver with Crash Kelly's guitarist Sean Kelly. In 2011 the band changed its name into Famous Underground. Darius Szczepaniak (Black Crowes etc.) mixed and mastered the album at Rouge Valley Studio in Toronto. Carl Begai of Canadian Hard Rock/Metal Magazine BW&BK describes the album as "It's a darker if-Metallica-were-Guns-N-Roses direction with this brand new work."

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great debut from a new band from the singer Nick Walsh formerly of Canadian band Slik Toxik. Slik Toxic bought out there debut album in 1992, a hard rockin album mostly in the vein of Guns n Roses/sleazy hard rock style. They did pretty well at the time, particularly in Canada, but as grunge was really starting to take off, their second album had a different grungy feel to it and didn't do as well, and they called it a day. Shame really, they were a good band, but Nick is now back with a very good metal album from his new band Famous Underground. The new band has a new sound, a bit like the heavier moments from Skid Row, but with a more modern feel. This is shaping up to be my favourite album of 2013, it's that good.
