It is hard to believe that Kissin Dynamite have been around for ten years now. If you don’t know who Kissin Dynamite are you are missing out. Some consider them the Steel Panther of Germany. Their songs can be a little tongue and cheek but they really know how to rock. The band started out as a high school band in 2007 and developed into one of Germany’s premiere heavy metal bands. With five solid studio albums out now, Kissin Dynamite decided to celebrate their ten-year anniversary by releasing a live album called Dynamite Nights. The album celebrates all of the bands hits over the last ten years.
Some of my favorite songs on Dynamite Nights include “Money, Sex and Power,” “DNA,” “Supersonic Killer,” “Sex is War” and “Hash tag your life.” Another treat on the album is a duet with Jennifer Haben (vocalist of the German symphonic metal band Beyond The Black). She sings brilliantly with Hannes Braun on the track “Masterpiece.” Dynamite Nights really catches the intensity of a Kissin Dynamite show. The mix on the album is near perfect. Some live albums can have too much crowd noise or drums that drown out the rest of the band. The show was recorded in Stuttgart Germany in front of their hometown crowd. Some listeners may be turned off by the band’s dialogue being in German, but I was not bothered by it at all.
I really enjoyed this album from the standpoint that for a live album it was put together nicely, and I also enjoyed the music itself. If you are headed to a party this weekend pick up Kissin Dynamite’s Dynamite Nights. You will be the hit of the party because this is awesome party music. Dynamite Nights is available as a DVD/2CDs or BluRay/2CD packages. It is available now via AFM records.
