Meldrum is the band founded around Michelle Meldrum, who used to handle the guitar shredding in girly-metal band Phantom Blue.
After the Phantom Blue split-up, she did a couple of projects including one with Europe axe slinger John Norum and at the beginning of the new millenium she formed Meldrum who released their debut "Loaded Mental Canon" in 2002.
And now the time has come for the sophomore effort entitled ?Blowin? Up The Machine?.
It may come as a bit of surprise when I say that the band sounds as the bastard sister of Zakk Wylde?s Black Label Society, as this is a physically almost impossible feat. The energy & aggression simply drips from this record like sweat of the back of a buffalo with a female soon-to-be companion in clear view.
Also be informed that the God amongst drummers Gene Hoglan had the honor to drum on this record so you more or less know what to expect. Oh, and on top of all this there's a contribution by the never retiring Lemmy Kilminster, who thought it would be a good thing to bring in his expertise, on ?Miss Me When I?m Gone?.
All in all this is a decent metal record. The only thing that surprised me is that this platter is released by the notoriously pink & fluffy Frontiers Records. Broadening of the horizon they call that, I think.

Listener, be adviced listen before you buy ! Lemmy state's : "if you thought girls can't play rock'n roll...". Well, I didn't think that at all !!!! But this album proves this statement wrong. Anytime I'd listen to Phantom Blue, but this album can stay where it is.
Why Frontiers Why ????
didn't like this at all,the best is when Lemmy shows up.
