Nitrate - Open Wide
Nitrate is back bigger & better with their second album 'Open Wide' following on from their successful and highly rated debut 'Realworld' from 2018. Inspired by the late 80's rock scene with bands such as Def Leppard, Europe, Motley Crue, and Bon Jovi, Nitrate is the brainchild of song writer Nick Hogg (bass guitar/keyboards). Once again, Rob Wylde (Midnite City/ Tigertailz/ Teenage Casket Company) co-wrote, produced the album and played rhythm guitar. Back on drums & mixing is Pete Newdeck (Midnite City, Eden's Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman). New to Nitrate are Marcus Thurston (Vega) who took over lead guitar duties and on lead vocals and, all the way from Sweden, Philip Lindstrand (Find Me, East Temple Avenue, Strong). The mastering was once again handled by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Nitrate's follow up album packs more punch than the first, with a more edgier, in your face feel complete with 10 hard hitting Hair Metal/AOR/Melodic Rock tracks with all out hooks and big backing vocals.
