British rockers, The Treatment, have released their third studio album “Generation Me” and it’s an absolute stormer of an album!
Forming back in 2008, and having performed at festivals such as Download, Sonisphere and Steelhouse, as well as touring with the likes of Alice Cooper, Slash, Steel Panther and Motley Crue, these guys have already made their mark on the British rock scene, and are proving that rock is still very much alive and kicking. It’s already apparent that The Treatment will be chalked up there with some of the greats, and I’m gutted to have only just learnt about the band.
Think about your favourite albums, and you’ll find they contain all those classic elements to form a staple in your collection. That’s exactly what you’ll find with “Generation Me” – huge hooks, gripping riffs, and belting vocals. The Treatment bring the power, and they certainly bring the rock!
“Let It Begin” throws the album open wide with premium riffage, following through with tracks “Tell Us The Truth” and “Generation Me” offering anthemic hooks and lyrics that bestow a generational influence. “Backseat Heartbeat” is the bands next release, which slows down the pace of the album, and lures you straight in to a power ballad. Being a big fan of Def Leppard, this is exactly what it reminds me of, and I can almost imagine Joe Elliot giving it a good go.
The album continues to arouse with “Cry Tough”, Bloodsucker” and “Light the Sun” giving the end of the album the same awakening as it started, and you’re left feeling tantalized and wanting more. So, if listening to the album isn’t quite enough for you, I’d highly recommend catching The Treatment on their upcoming tour. Tickets are currently £10 in advance, and with the band on the verge of something even bigger, you need to catch them quick whilst they’re still gracing the stages of smaller venues.
