Death of Democracy

Permanent Scar


Rising up from Eastern Massachusetts, New Bedford’s Kreagen delivers an unpolished and unapologetic fistful of metal with lots of old school charm for the denim and leather faithful. With a vibe that echoes the classic NWOBHM sounds of early Iron Maiden, Judas Priest (circa Sad Wings of Destiny), and Diamond Head, as well as a healthy dose of some good ‘ol 80’s hard rock (Scorpions, Sykes-era Whitesnake), Kreagen obviously have their hearts and souls in this material, as is evident in the sheer enthusiasm and aplomb with which they deliver each song. W.A.S.P., Skid Row, and Motley Crue have clearly influenced the boys that make up Kreagen. They rock, they roll, and they do it in a timeless manner, uncommon amongst many of today’s “Hard Rock” bands. All one can say after seeing them live is, “Goddamn! Long live rock and roll!!!!
