10 BANDS, DRINKING, PARTYING...NOTHING ELSE METTERS!!
"..Checkmate is an entertaining affair. The band plays dirty, amped-up rock and roll where you can literally smell the sweat. Stylistically, they fall somewhere between Social Distortion and Motörhead offering an array of aggressive tunes... The Italians are unafraid to torture their guitars over the rumbling bass, with the somewhat spent vocals fitting perfectly into the mix. They come to us with a lot of experience... The twin guitar attack of Moon and Hell give the disc’s 10 track plenty of energy and packs a real punch especially on the title track “Check Mate” where the attitude and the amplitude are fully cranked. Cobra’s drums are insanely ferocious pounding a hole in the floor with a monstrous backbeat. There is also the subtle western swagger they add to the rhythm giving the whole thing a splash of color."
