As this Canadian band’s name suggests, Heroinme (Hero In Me, get it?) is a collection of down ‘n’ dirty Hard Rock, metal-tinged and “sleezy” as all hell with sort of a glam/punk attitude.
With slamming tracks such as “Society High,” “Dead Man Walking,” “So Look Out,” “Help,” “What a Shame,” and “Scumbags and Angels,” this debut album would have seemed perfectly in trend had the group released this in the late ’80s/early ’90s alongside albums from Cats in Boots, EZO, Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Britny Fox, L.A. Guns, or Alice in Chains—and perhaps (when it comes to several tracks) even in the relative proximity of Industrial Metal acts such as Marilyn Manson.
Certainly, there’s nothing at all revolutionary or life-altering on offer here, but the music is deliciously riotous, raucous, and rowdy, generally well-produced, and wildly energetic sleaze rock with a strong retro flavor.
