As a metalhead, when I reviewed the track listing for this CD, I damn near had a seizure! This is an incredible line up of artists ranging through a whole spectrum of styles within hard rock and heavy metal; most of which I grew up listening to.

So who is this Russian band called Pushking then? According to Blabbermouth:

Formed in 1994, Pushking is the culmination of vocalist/main songwriter Konstantin “Koha” Shustarev, guitarists Nikolai Yegerev and Dmitry Losev, bassist Valeriy Sadakov, keyboardist Vicktor Drobysh, and drummer Andrey Kruglov. The chemistry within this band has resulted in a potent brand of rock music, which has preserved through their 15-year career and only gets better. “It was a gas singin’ on their record”, states Glenn Hughes. “Take it from me, it’s the real deal!!”

The new album is produced by Fabrizio Grossi, who has previously worked with Dave Navarro and Toto among many others. The World as We Love It is scheduled for release on February 1, but is now available for pre-order over at
