BIG BALL
HOTTER THAN HELL
AFM

Deriving their familiar sound from a strict diet of Brian Johnson-era AC/DC with a hint of Accept while taking their album title from KISS (surprised Gene Simmons hasnít reached out to them yet), thereís very little in the way of creativity coming through on the 13-track disc HOTTER THAN HELL by German hard rockers Big Ball. Thereís a lot of good time big beat down and dirty rock and roll to be had here, but if you own any of AC/DCís later material, you know what to expect and can definitely do without this clone. The crude nature by which they ape the formula of the aforementioned and incorporate it into their sleazed-up version only manages to add their name to the long list of bands that do their best to emulate Angus and company and fail miserably.
