Extreme Behaviour
Is it wrong to consult the back of a CD, see a picture of the band and still not know what kind of music you’re about to listen to? This is the case with Hinder and their debut Extreme Behaviour. From the scantily clad groupie on the cover, poring over photos of the band, to the Nickelback homage of the album itself and the generic band photo, it might scream “extreme” if you are 12 years old. (Maybe.) In the band’s biography, lead singer Austin Winkler cites Steven Tyler, Vince Neil and Josh Todd of Buckcherry as influences but succeeds in sounding more like Chad Kroeger than anybody. Hinder brings nothing new to the table. The biggest compliment we can offer is that this album is slightly more palatable than Jamie Foxx’s debut.
