Slaves to Fashion / P:O:B / Pedestrians of Blue biography
Norwegian act SLAVES TO FASHION was formed in 2002 by Johannes Stole (vocals) and Torfinn Sirnes (guitars), initially calling themselves Pedestrians of Blue. A demo was recorded the same year and sent out to various labels, but when noone wanted to sign them they decided to continue on their own. They set up their own label FishFarm Records, and with Rudolf Fredly (bass) and Harald Levang (drums) added to the line-up they started working on more material.

2005 saw them release the EP The Second Monologue to a generally positive reception. Following this production the band decided that their choice of moniker might not be the best, and shortened it to P:O:B. And their full length debut album was issued using this name in June of 2007.

While this production was given lots of atention worldwide, the band still felt that their band name wasn't the best. Due to that they discontinued P:O:B in 2008, and decided to continue as Slaves to Fashion.

Their first creation using this new moniker was a self-titled EP that was issued in 2009, and at the start of 2011 their first full length production as Slaves to Fashion was released as "Artistic Differences".

4 stars Norwegian quartet SLAVES TO FASHION was formed around 2008 as a direct continuation of the band Pedestrians of Blue, which at that point had toiled away for close to a decade with ample critical but not much commercial success. With a new name, this foursome crafted themselves a fresh start and the first chapter of it was released in February of 2011 as the CD "Artistic Differences", courtesy of the independent German label Hands of Blue Records.

Well-made, accessible and melodic music meeting at the crossroads between mainstream-oriented hard rock and progressive metal is what the Norwegian quartet Slaves To Fashion has to offer on its debut album "Artistic Differences". A well-made and honest production, following up nicely the sound and style these guys explored in their previous band Pedestrians of Blue and as such highly recommended to those who enjoyed the music the band made using that moniker.

4 stars Combining elements of hard rock and heavy metal, infusing the mix with melodies and catchy choruses like the hair metal bands excelled at doing, and then spicing the music with some progressive elements as well as samples and loops. That is what Norwegian band P:O:B does on this release, and it results in a tasty and promising debut album.

The only thing missing here are the unforgettable killer tunes; which hopefully will appear on their next release.

Still, the 12 songs on this release are all good; and it is a solid release that should appeal to those with a soft spot for slick and sophisticated progressive metal of the kind bordering mainstream territories.
