|"Modern Hard Rock" is a fair description, not in a Nickelback way, but more blike "updated hair metal" comparable to someone like Bombay Black. If I recall, Mark Fain was in a band called Chlorine that tried halfheartedly to do a similar sound circa ... shit, was it 1999? Anyway, the production is big and full in a modern way and very clear. Tony West's lower register has a bit of a Josh Todd whine to it, but when he jumps up high, he reminds me of Robert Mason, very melodic. The music is thumping and anthemic, but the melodies and lyrics give it a slightly moody feel as well, sorta L.A. Guns-like in that regard. Blacklist Union are on their fourth album now, and are among the better class of bands doing this style, especially stateside.|

|They're clearly fans of '80's pop-metal, but unlike the Swedish bands, they don't try to replicate that style down to the last detail. Now that '80's-phobia is a thing of the distant past and even the popular radio bands aren't ashamed to admit they like hair metal unironically, Blacklist Union should be bigger. They've got the sound and, for the most part, the songs. Definitely worth checking out.|
