LeatherJacks was created in 2016 in Brazil, by singer, songwriter and guitarist Mauro Cordeiro, as one-man band with the first album “The Arks of Rock and Roll” in 2017, produced by himself, giving life to a hard rock work as a kind of tribute to the eighties hard rock music. “The Arks of Rock and Roll”, winner as Best Rock Album in June 2017. The track “People” starts the album with an explosion of bass and guitar, brilliant 80s sound and good rhythms, such a good beginning, astonishing piece! Harder style for the follower “Crocodiles Heart” with a classic rock’n’roll rhythms and the right music attitude for a live show, just another brilliant song. “Burning Wire”, first single released, fiercen, sharp and rough enough to highlight the multifaceted style of LeatherJacks. The title track “LeatherJacks” is yet another blow to the center, a perfect piece of classic hard rock, thrilling riffs and catchy chorus.
“Emotions On Sale” is the characteristic semi ballad every rock album can contains with a good guitar work. Eighties a go-go with the track “The Slammer”, a piece between Van Halen style and Iron Maiden guitars.
A faster sound in the follower “Do you Fucking Pay my Bills”, as fast sound contained in “Motocross”, the only instrumental track in the whole album, that shows the aggressive guitar and the good musical preparation. Great rock refrains for the follower “The Lost Arks Of Rock And Roll”,
“I Hate To Fall In Love”, “Persona Non Grata” and “The Payback Bay”, that close the album, are other three spectacular pieces. As I always say the eighties hard rock will never die, myths and legends, they continue to inspire musicians and make them excellent. Mauro Cordeiro is one of this new musicians who created such a good album for the joy who, like me, love this genre.
