4 out of 5 Stars!
After leaving Fastway, singer Dave King formed Katmandü with guitarist Mandy Meyer (Asia/Krokus), issuing a single album of blues-based Hard Rock.
Some of the tracks remind me of Fastway (no surprise, considering King’s history), with Led Zeppelin, Kingdom Come, Nazareth, and Aerosmith also being chief inspirations. Quite melodic and driving, the album boasts a bevy of catchy riffs, with splendid production and solid performances overall.
It’s a shame Dave King never got the recognition he deserved and this talented band fizzled after the release of this lone album.
