SNAKEWINE (Heavy Rock, Germany) | New Official Video for "Mean Machine"
Well oiled rhythm in the blood
Formed in 2014, Thuringian leatherheads SNAKEWINE released its Rock’n’Roll infused debut album "Serpent Kings" in late 2015.
Lively Boogie strokes and touching bluesy facets in the middle of a stormy guitar work enrich the whole thing with an pretty original interpretation.
Cross-references to established Rock acts such as The Carburetors, Peter Pan Speedrock, Chrome Division and Danko Jones, fitted with a thick pinch of old Motörhead, let the massive kicking street-sound of the East German gang go as lubricated.
Their gasoline drenched mixture of booming heavy Rock, classic Hard Rock tunes and dirty Metal just breaks through with its overdose of honesty.
Muscle-packed action, liters of hot sweat, crispy cheerleader girls and wonderfully hard Rock sound - all this can be seen in the new music video "Mean Machine" by SNAKEWINE.
The impressing casual HEAVY ROCK bunch around shouter Ronny had just as much fun as all the others involved in working with the Saalfeld, Germany based American Football Club, ‚Titans‘.
MEDIA FEEDBACK for SNAKEWINE "Serpent Kings":
9 / 10
"'Serpent Kings' is … amazing … I like it so much that I’m going to listen to it eating beer and ice cream … Raven and other influences make this THE thing to listen to when the relatives are over and you need to tune out … power chords and thunder-bass make this a must for any Power Metal collection … this has a flare of Southern Rock and overall power tone; it is simply put; great to listen to."

"… this album has really impressed me a lot … this band , albeit echoing sounds already known to us, is able to make inroads into the hearts of listeners with the passion that burns within them, transmitting it to all of us … and that's good, very good indeed, because it is above all that music should be able to do … Good luck guys!"

"Motörhead, AC/DC, a hint of Street Metal, the impact of Danko Jones and the Snake wine has to come into your throats … you can not do without it … recommended without reservation."
"… features eight hard living cuts that would have made Lemmy proud! Speaking of which, Motörhead is at one end of the spectrum (as far as influences go!) with the likes of Guns N' Roses, Dangerous Toys, Skid Row, Danko Jones, and even Danzig sitting comfortably on the other end … sure, you could argue that there is a lot more to this bands sound, but either way it all adds up to one hell of a rock n' roll ride that probably slays the beast live … with summer fast approaching you couldn't ask for a better soundtrack to the good times than "Serpent Kings"."

"Hellyeah Baby … this band got me hit … SNAKEWINE have that inviting music vitality that appeases anyone or anything to resist no more to the band`s offering … that`s crazy but I like put it this way … there also is some Motörhead, Volbeat, J.D Overdrive (PL), hairy Hard Rock going on relatively to European influences and I just end up thinking about this album like fucking amazing Rock`n`Roll with astonishing lyrics …"
