Heavy Metal News Soulicit Parking Lot Superstar ReviewOn this album I got a taste of something I really liked and decided to play it into the ground before sharing it with you. Probably a bad idea because I have a feeling we are going to be hearing these guys on the radio quite a bit in the coming months.

Hailing from Wichita KS, Soulicit offers up good clean hard rock on Parking Lot Superstar that produces anthem after anthem that will get you motivated to do anything. In my case it was drink some beer. The album opens with “Hell Yeah,” which is an arena style song that starts a journey to multiple influences found on the album. The entire album is a soundtrack for an adrenaline junkie!

We hear a little jazz, funk, soul, lots of metal, and a band that offers the total package in both vocals and instrumentals. In their limited time together Soulicit has worked with Buckcherry, Fuel, Sevendust, Halestorm, and many others. After every one hears this album drop on August 31st they will be quite busy adding to their festival appearances like Rocklahoma, SXSW, and Rockfest 98.

The reason I’m so excited about this band and this record is Soulicit represents the perfect go between band for hard rock and true metal fans. If you think this is a Nickelback clone that runs around throwing the horns think again. Soulicit gives you what they have and it just so happens they don’t have to pretend to be anything their not. The music stands on its own and will have metal fans banging their heads and hard rock fans stomping their feet.

How often to you come across a band that could open for Greenday one night and Black Sabbath the next? Trust me; it’s been tried, but rarely is successful. Soulicit could easily fill both spots and stand on their own with nothing more than good songwriting and talented musicians.

If you got caught up in my adoration check out www.soulicitrock.com; you’ll see what I mean.

Metal on,

Martell

    This is an awesome album….I just question the “limited time together” comment. They started up in 2002, that’s ten years ago. That’s quite a while to be together. Too bad some chose to force others out of the band early this year….it’s a shame, because they will NEVER be the same, and NEVER produce the quality music that you find on this album.

    I believe they left on their own

    Wow Anonymous. If that is what you can make yourself believe, that is fine. They were forced out and you know it, we know it, and the rest of the world will know it. All they have to do is listen to the band one time, and they KNOW it is know the same band it was. Grow up and admit facts!!!
