A recent find for me has been the Swiss hard rock band The Order. These guys have been around since the mid 2000's, and not surprisingly, the band have modelled their sound on fellow Swiss countrymen Krokus, China and Gotthard, though perhaps they are a touch harder and heavier in places. They've released a handful of albums prior to this 2012 effort, 'RockWolf' from 2009 was a notable release, when the band were signed to German label Dockyard 2. Now signed to Massacre, people were wondering what the significance of the album title '1986' was all about. Well you don't have to be a rocket scientist to work it out. It's a point on the hard-rock time-line, and the material on this album takes us back to that era.

The Songs
Throw in a swag of AC/DC, perhaps a hint of Whitesnake and a touch of Victory, and this orderly lot have got all the bases covered. Grunty riffs, organ runs, tough rhythms and lyrics that Messrs Storace and Coverdale would be proud to own. Chunkier than a can of Campbells soup, 'The Power Of Love' gallops across the turf like a Clydesdale on steroids! The song-titles might hint at generic throwaway lines (and yes, they are!), there's a certain familiarity in what they deliver, so a tune like 'Long Like Rock N Roll' fits the bill, where the band sings about the 80's with absolute no hint of shame! The Order picks up the pace courtesy of 'Generation White Line'. Are they singing about driving, cocaine or painting? You decide lol! A song titled 'Lonely Nights' and you'd be thinking it's ballad time. Far from it, this track is a beast. The metronome goes into overdrive, with riffs akin to sparks flying off like a metal grinder! 'Fire It Up' is a party anthem from the era of Bon Jovi and Europe, but sits more comfortably in the age of Gotthard and other contemporaries. Now we reach ballad time, with 'Kiss Under The Rain', a cool acoustic led tune, which switches to power-ballad mode soon after. Nice. 'Damn Hot Chick' is a ode to the hot ladies of the 80's, with suitably silly lyrics to match, but who the hell cares! Get a load of the Victory flavoured 'Heartbreaking Rebel Blood', and this sums up The Order perfectly. Excellent beefy hard rock of the finest order. The riffs and double kick drums continue all the way to the end; 'Stop Lying In The Name Of Love' providing absolute proof.

In Summary
If you are hankering for a bit of tough hard rock that has a back-beat to shake your cerebellum to bits, then '1986' is definitely made to order. I'm just disappointed that I didn't pick this up earlier (like 2012), as I'm sure it would've made my top 10 albums with ease. Thanks to RKBLUEZ for alerting me to this fantastic Swiss band. Let's hope they release a new set of songs soon!
