Further press feedback for "The Law“!!!
AAfter the first press clippings for the last newsletter reached us in time, here comes the next boost.
The new SLAM issue is filled with a mighty dosis of KAMIKAZE KINGS. In the review the chief editor wonders who let the children of a few Mötley Crüe groupies out of the fence and celebrates the Berlin guys as descendants of Mötley Crüe, Twisted Sister and Motörhead, that have ringed in the new age of rivet metal with great 8 out of 10 points. In the interview with SLAM Elmo Kamikaze tells i.a. what the rivet-pitli is all about. The KAMIKAZE KINGS opener “Burn Baby Burn“ from the new album “The Law“ will blast your ears on the SLAM sampler.
But not only in Germany the press is fascinated from KAMIKAZE KINGS. Also the international press celebrates and agrees on the debut of the KAMIKAZE KINGS and requested the first interviews from Elmo.
Besides KAMIKAZE KINGS can be seen world-wide on TV with their music video for the fighter-hymn “Boys ’n’ Men“ and the band knows especially how to amaze the Spanish fans through their daily TV presence.
SLAM - 8/10
"«The Law» is pure Rock from its’ content and topics: «Saturday Night Hero», «Burn Baby Burn», «Boys 'n' Men» – clenched manhood, coupled with glam, rivets inevitable preference for stamping drums, fat riffs and lowered vocals … All hail the black leather!"
Rock Hard - 7/10
"Musically one presents a good kick-ass-rock on «The Law», which is especially liked due to its catchiness. The production of Dirk Faehling makes it a massive adrenaline-cocktail and bombs out of the speakers naturally … With «Burn Baby Burn», «I Am The Law», «Boys ’n’ Men» and «Boneshaker Boogie», the band has however some high-quality hits in their program."

“I like the gentlemen whenever they step on gas and fly out of the midtempo, like at «Boys 'n' Men», a really catchy song, and live hit!“
Stormbringer.at - 3,5/5
“The uptempo songs like «Boneshaker Boogie», «In The Name Of Tragedy» or «Boys ’n’ Men» which you may know from the single release are really powerful. They are smash hits other bands would kill for. Chapeau, my gentlemen! … Listen to «In For The Kill» and you will know how mighty played living sunshine rock has to sound like. The Sunset Strip works in Central Europe, too …“
Zephyrs-Odem.de - 8.8/10
"Friends, this is going to be something big because finally here comes a party compatible and merciless hit suspected music from Germany directly into your living room. You can entitle the KAMIKAZE KINGS easily and without hesitation as “The next big thing“, as it is rare that genius and (funny) madness lay together as on «The Law». Elmo and his boys have worked well … I am more than curious what will come in the future.“
Hallowed.se - 4/7 points (SWE)
“In the end I can say that this is one hell of a catchy rocking album, so for all of you into straightforward rock music with attitude, here’s your album of the summer.“
“I was raised on bigger than life hardrock and I had a thing for Zodiac Mindwarp back in the days. This kinda reminds me of that one-foot-on-the-speaker-fist-in-the-air-bigger-than-god kind of hardrock that was big in the 80s and totally died with grunge. I gotta admit that against better judgment I like this mindless hardrock assault. There is something very liberating about it that I can’t resist“

“Vooral een track als «Saturday Night Hero» klinkt als gegoten en je kan ook niet ontkennen dat Elmo je meekrijgt op songs als «Bible Black» of «Hard Times». Zonder twijfel liggen ook wat luisteraars gewoon te wachten tot de bands eens gewoon volledig alles durft weg te slepen, zoals dat gebeurt op afsluiter «Shadows». Een klasse product …“
Saladdaysmag.com - 3.5/5 (I)
" Il quartetto di Berlino non ha peli sulla lingua (solo sul petto, messo bene in mostra) e tira fuori quattordici tracce gravide di adrenalina, assalti all’arma bianca senza ritegno, banchetti furiosi sul cadavere degli eighties."
Terapija.net - 7/10 (HR)
“No, kao što milijuni publike obožavaju vrlo bliske filmske zvijezde od Hulk Hogana, Steven Seagala, Jean Claude Van Dama i sli?nih, koji su ipak mal?ice 'skuliraniji', ne bi nikakvo ?udo bilo da i ovi opako pretenciozni Nijemci uberu kod upravo takve publike odre?eni uspjeh. Mene osobno sve ovo podsje?a na one fore Kiss, Manowar, Twisted Sisters i daleko boljih Black Veil Brides, no vizualno su svi tu negdje.“
