2nd strike from the Germany Psychobilly 4-piece, THE WRECK KINGS! Just back from Russia here's their new studio album with solid Psychobilly and hints of Punk and Rock'n'Roll!! The German mentalists are back with their second album.

If you liked their début 2010 release 'Under Pressure' then you know what to expect. It's the same hard-edged psychobilly, bordering on punk'n'roll, but with better production values and the lads have obviously honed their skills too as is evident in the song structures.

Apart from the slap bass, there isn't much evidence of any rockabilly to be found. It sounds to me like the boys are of that later generation of psychobilly outfit that came to the genre via the punk route as opposed to the rockabilly one.

They're like a more vicious sounding Peacocks with a twist of America's Hayride To Hell.

It's a tough sound which thankfully doesn't rely on theatrical "put-on" vocals to get that across.

They're certainly not a psychobilly band of the "fun" variety so to speak. They're more of the "kick you in the face" variety.

Tales in the form of song guaranteed to put a scowl on your face. The O'Prez
