Ratt – Infestation (2010)

Posted: February 1, 2011 in Music

Ratt’s latest CD, Infestation, was released in June of 2010. The first single “Best Of Me,” answered the call for fans who have been hungering for a taste; a morsel to feed that Ratt and Roll addiction. “Best Of Me,” is prototypical mid-80′s Ratt that would have fit nicely on any of their early works like Out of The Cellar and Invasion of Your Privacy. This is the band’s best album in over two decades.

Stephen Pearcy’s voice sounds as good today as it did when he took us “Round and Round” in 1983. Warren DeMartini is still shredtastic, and new guitarist Carlos Cavazo (Quiet Riot) slips right into the band’s signature bluesy groove. Bobby Blotzer is still a skin pounding madman behind the kit, and bassist Robbie Crane keeps the rhythm lockstep with Blotzer.

Ratt have rediscovered themselves with Infestation, and their strengths and talents are on clear display for all to hear. After letting the past go (which for years has meant a Pearcy-less Ratt) one might say they have reinvented themselves as well, but the truth is, a Ratt never loses it’s way, it simply hides in the dark waiting for the precise moment to re-emerge. 2010 was truly the year of the RATT!
