Editors’ Notes

Eleven years since their last album, Ratt return with 2010’s Infestation and take hair metal back to the mid-‘80s, even as its members lurk around 50 years old. Close your eyes and it’s the same attack that made 1984’s Out of the Cellar an essential piece of the lite-metal puzzle. Guitarist Robbin Crosby passed in 2002, but singer Stephen Pearcy reunited with Warren DeMartini and Bobby Blotzer and added Quiet Riot’s Carlos Cavazo to the band while writing up tunes that sound like they belong to a band twenty-five years younger. Pearcy’s still a leering, swaggering partyhound with a nose for wild women and DeMartini and Cavazo whip out the twin guitar attack and the vintage solos with the same kick and precision of old. “Eat Me Up Alive” is a metalhead’s anthem. “Look Out Below” features some prime riffage and “Last Call” features the ensemble vocals and deep, cavernous echo that made these guys such a formidable group back in their day.

Customer Reviews

RATT owns

I'll keep this short.

A must buy if you like RATT, rock, metal, or have any taste in music at all.
Good vocals, good fills, and absolutely killer guitar solos!!

Better than expected

For me, this sounds like it was recorded back in their heyday during the 80's. If you like the early stuff, then get this one.

10 years and worth the wait...redsox rob

if you liked early ratt such as out of the cellar, and invasion of your privacy, this is the disc for you. as a ratt fan from the beginning, this album is amazing, don't listen to the negative reviews, every disc has them, this is nine dollars well spent, preview lost weekend, best of me, and eat me up alive, and my favorite as good as it gets.stephen pearcy's vocals are crisp and his snarl is still as awesome as it was in 83, and demartini is still by far one of the best axe men in the business, along with carlos, they sound awesome, and with blotzer keeping rythym with the drums, and robbie crane on bass you will not be disapointed..this is by far there best effort, ratt is a band on a mission, who doesn't sound like they've been gone for ten years, they are back...the ratt can't be exterminated...
