EDITORS’ NOTES

These Finnish rockers live for three things: sex, wild times, and even more sex, and the utterly audacious InVader proves that when it comes to fusing X-rated hair metal and hook-soaked Europop, Reckless Love have zero equals. “Monster” is a naughty bedroom confessional bursting with scorching licks and a scream-along chorus, while “Child of the Sun” is a glittery synth ballad that morphs into lascivious rap-rock. Guitarist Pepe Reckless is a riff-roaring beast, especially on “Pretty Boy Swagger,” an astounding collision of bad-boy boasts and EDM-style thump.

TITLE TIME

About Reckless Love

A Finnish glam rock/metal band based out of the Northern Savonia city of Kuopio, Reckless Love were originally formed in 2001 as a Guns N' Roses cover band under the name Reckless Life. By 2004 they were writing and performing their own Sunset Strip-inspired sleaze rock under their current moniker, with which they took home the top prize at that year's Kuopio Band Competition. In 2009 they inked a deal with Spinefarm/Universal and released their first major-label single, "One More Time," followed in 2010 by their eponymous debut studio album, which entered the Finnish National Charts at lucky number 13. Released in 2011, Animal Attraction made an even bigger chart impact, securing the number ten slot, while 2013's Spirit proved to be the band's biggest hit to date, peaking at number three. InVader, Reckless Love's fourth studio long-player, dropped in early 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger
