Generation Goodbye - Dynamite Nights
Label:2017 AFM Records
Release date: July 14, 2017
Last year German Kissin Dynamite rockers released “Generation Goodbye” an Album that easily became The Metal Gods Meltdowns Album of the Month for July 2016. Fast forward to July 2017 and these Swabian legends have released a bumper 25 track monster Live Album which includes a DVD that is surely going to see the band continue to hit the heights worldwide.
Having already released five Albums this is the Bands tenth year and so here is a mind blowing album "Dynamite Nights". It opens with “Generation Goodbye” a song I knew would go down well live, well I wasn’t wrong the energy and vitality floods through your speakers as you join the band and the crowd to sing this anthem damn LOUD! Then we get “Money ,Sex ,and Power” which is the song that kinda of got me hooked to these Teutonic terrors in the first place and like the previous song its another title track from the Bands catalogue.
I have many favourite tracks from the lads and “DNA” is one I would play to a Kissin Dynamite newbie, you really could just close your eyes and be there in the crowd. Hell yeah, this is a stunning start to an outstanding Live release. The high energy performance holds your attention as the band kick out and hit the crowd with more killer dancing songs including “Running Free” with the full on crowd participation on “Love Me Hate Me” this leads into the first slower track the beautiful “If Clocks were Running Backwards” its gives the band and the crowd a breather, this melodious tune sends shivers up and down your spine , it’s such a touching song, and listening to this song on the eve of my birthday I found it hard not to have moist eyes as the lyrics hit a spot in my heart and mind, although not my favourite Dynamite Ballad it still hits the mark.
Then things are brought back to trouncing , bouncing fists punching the air, singing your lungs out fury as “She’s a Killer” and “Deadly” deliver their down and dirty grooves. Leading into the wonderfully schmoozing ,and sleazy “She Came She Saw” … as you will all become conquered by its dynamic delivery as you surrender to these magnificent German Sleaze legends! There is no doubt the band are amazing live, and they feature many tracks from their latest release , and earlier works , the songs all meld together to give the fans a dream performance ,they really have the crowd eating out of their hands as “Steel of Swabia” “Supersonic Killer” “Six Foot under” combined with the highly addictive and telling “Hashtag Your Life” these guys continue to thrill and amaze you.
Everything fits together like an enormous magical musical jigsaw that finishes with the stunning “Flying Colours”
Simply put I love this Band I MUST get to see them live before I die!! Only thing that disappointed me was the exclusion of “Fireflies” my fave ballad from the band.
To sum up:
I Am not a huge fan of Live Albums to be honest but I would rate this album up there with The Scorpions “World Wide Live” released in the Eighties and my favourite Live Album! Make sure you get a hold of this Album it’s a full-blown fun, sleaze Rocking party fest, it’s a release to shake, shout ,sing ,and rock n roll your heart out to!
