Dirty Fingers-250 Dollars

Logic(il)Logic/Andromeda Dischi

Formed in the summer of 2010, with guitarist turned vocalist/guitarist Gabriel Grisanti the sole original member left standing after a round or two of unfortunate line-up changes, Dirty Fingers is a Italian hard and heavy band that is said to contain "Metallica energy, Motörhead tipsy bad manners and some gloomy Black Sabbath-inspired passages". I for one would beg to differ. That description leaves out Dirty Fingers whiskey-soaked/sleazy-does-it attitude (there's some sweet Guns N' Roses love going on here!) as well as the fact that this four-piece puts the ROCK back in rock and roll! And really both of those key points only add to the overall awesomeness that is Dirty Fingers! Because it's not just Metallica, Motörhead and Black Sabbath when it comes to Dirty Finger's sinsational full-length debut album here! No sir! On "250 Dollars" the up-and-coming Dirty Fingers also take a page or two from Megadeth, AC/DC, Hanoi Rocks, Krokus, Accept, Judas Priest, Riot, (early) Mötley Crüe, Rose Tattoo, T Rex, Alice Cooper, (solo) Ozzy, Kiss and even Jimi Hendrix and pretty much yes, it is as f**kin' killer as all of that sounds! For these Verona-based rock and rollers* it's all about kicking back and kicking ass and based solely upon their nine-track debut-album here these guys are already at the top of their game! One can only imagine then just how righteous album number two will be for Gabriel Grisanti and gang! If this is just the starting point for Dirty Fingers then quite possibly we could be looking at one of Italy's greatest contributions to hard rock and heavy metal! You can find Dirty Fingers online here and you will want to check out this album's kick-off track, "Back To The Move", by clicking on the YouTube link posted below! Dirty Finger's "250 Dollars" is everything that I love about rock 'n' rock-infused hard rock/heavy metal rolled up into the perfect underground club/dive-bar worthy act and I simply couldn't ask for a better soundtrack then this for the long-overdue summer days that lay ahead!

*The album's full line-up includes:

Gabriel Grisanti-Guitars and Vocals
