CD Reviews

Melodic and groovy
L. B. Ivarsson | Rock City | 05/07/2004

"The second album from Gotthard is titled "DIAL HARD" (1994) and the band continue in the same direction as the first album but this time it's a bit more polished - still heavy metal though! While Gotthard did a cover of "Hush" the last time, they have now chosen Beatles' "Come together" and they managed to do a great version. The songs on "DIAL HARD" are mainly of high standard even if one could ask for more originality since the material melts together like it did on the debut album. But with songs like the groovy "Mountain mama", the bluesy "I'm your travelin' man", and the strutting "Dirty devil rock", Gotthard really shine from time to time."
Great second effort!

"Switzerland is more than Krokus and Celtic Frost!!!
Gotthard has always been a favorite in Europe, and it is easy too see why. Pure, clean hard rock in the vain of early Def Leppard. Throw in a pinch of Bon Jovi and a morsel of AC/DC and you got Gotthard. Highly recommended for anyone with a taste of classic Hard Rock with a modern touch."
BLUES + ROCK + CATCHY SONGS = BIG ALBUM

"TOGETHER WITH "G", ONE OF THE BEST HARD ROCK/ BLUES ALBUMS OF THESE LAST YEARS. TO ME, IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN THEIR FIRST ALBUM. I DON'T KNOW WHICH IS THE BEST, "G" OR THIS ONE. I CAN ONLY SAY THAT THESE KIND OF 4/4 SONGS ARE THE SONG PEOPLE LIKE. THESE ARE THE SONGS PEOPLE LIKE LISTENING TO WHILE THE RIDE A MOTORCYCLE THROUGH THE ENDLESS DESERT OF ARIZONA OR NEVADA. THESE KIND OF SONGS GIVE ME THE POWER TO SCREAM MY HAPPINESS AND THE POWER THAT I FEEL INSIDE TO THE ENTIRE WORLD. THE FIRST TWO, THE FOURTH , BUT I WOULD SAY, ALL OF THEM, THEY ARE VERY POWERFUL SONGS, JUST LIKE A FIST IN YOUR STOMACH. THESE SONGS HAVE THE POWER OF HARD ROCK AND THE FEELING OF BLUES. IF YOU BUY THIS ALBUM AND YOU DON'T LIKE IT, I REFUND YOU (IT IS A JOKE, EHEHEHE). I CAN BET ANYTHING YOU WILL LIKE THIS HEAVY, TOUGH, HARD, POWERFUL, STRONG ALBUM.
AND, TO THE END OF THE ALBUM, THERE IS THE CLASSIC BALLAD THAT WILL MAKE YOU FINALLY REST. ONE VERY GOOD ALBUM, BECAUSE THEY MIXED THE POWER OF THE HARD ROCK & THE SOUND OF BLUES. WHAT ELSE I CAN SAY ? "I'M YOUR TRAVELIN MAN" IS ONE THE BEST SONG, I WOULD SAY. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE "G", BUY THIS, TOO. BECAUSE IT'S SIMILAR, BUT AT THE SAME TIME DIFFERENT. SONGS SPEAK BY THEMSELVES."
