Nikki’s Wives – Shaking Hands With The Devil

A huge sounding tune from this Canadian based band combines the gargantuan continent consuming stadium rock of Motley Crue with the compelling theatre of Evanescence.

‘Shaking Hands With The Devil’ opens like a warped ‘Stairway To Heaven’ and explodes with fiery rage. “I don’t feel good anymore!” wails lead vocalist Nikki with pent up angst and despair. An impressive vocal that ranges in style, range and emotion – Nikki does the sitting-next-to-you confession with breathy timidity one moment and a playful and flirty coquette the next. The dynamic expressive power in her vocal brings it altogether in the crashing crescendo.

Nikki’s Wives sound unstoppable.
