Alex Meister, guitar player and producer, came up with Pleasure Maker project in 2001. He was inspired by great bands such as Def Leppard, Dokken, Winger, Ratt and so. The band released “Love On The Rocks”, its first álbum, in 2004. That was re-released in Japan in 2006 under Spiritual Beast label.Their music had huge positive feedback and great critic reviews on magazines and websites worldwide. The band even had an award indication for best song of the year 2005, for the track “Just Thinkin’ About U” on melodicrock.com, the main reference back then.
In 2008, “Twisted Desire”, their second álbum, was released simultaneously in europe and north américa under Perris Records label. In the following year they toured nonstop around Brazil, which included na opening act for Richie Kotzen (ex-Poison and Mr. Big)
After a seven year break, the band reunited in 2017 to record their third album, “Dancing With Danger”. It features Alex Meister as a producer and brings Herinque Canale “Baboom” on mixing and mastering. The new CD presents Pleasure Maker on its best!! It has contagious tunes that sound colorful and vibrant, just like an 80’s Hard Rock band should. And better yet, they do not sound old fashioned at all.
Get ready for the perfect match of sing-along chorus and powerfull guitar solos to be played at the maximum volume.
DANCIN' WITH DANGER PRESS REVIEWS:
AOR UNDERGROUND (UK) - “Dancin’ With Danger”. The eighties never went away for Alex Meister and his band of hard rock brothers. This is their third album and it's a blast from beginning to end, the kind of album that will put a smile firmly on your face. It worships at the altar of Black 'N' Blue, Dokken and Danger Danger and is on an even keel with the likes of The Defiants and Tokyo Motor Fist.
ODayRoxx 90 - Indeed, "Dancin' With Danger" seems recorded 1988 - and by a skilled producer - mixing the guitar attack of Van Halen / Ratt with sticky choruses ala Danger Danger and lots of hooks. plenty of contagious tunes with that colorful and vibrant feel-good vibe, just like an '80s styled band of this ilk should. And better yet, they do not sound old fashioned at all. There's a tight rhythm section and strong melodious lead vocals, but the star on the record is Meister's stupendous guitar work and the really well arranged multi-layered choruses.
VIRIAOR (Spain) - Las guitarras y los coros son lo más llamativo en el conjunto del disco. Esos coros son realmente impresionantes a la vez que rellenan muchísimo los temas y los dotan de gran elegancia. Parece que estuviéramos escuchando los coros de Def Leppard o de Danger Danger. Si hay algo a la altura de las voces de acompañamiento en este disco, son las guitarras, no cabe duda de que Alex Meister, es todo un virtuoso de las seis cuerdas, sin embargo, conjuga a la perfección las dosis de técnica y melodía, aunque el disco contiene unos riffs y unos solos a la altura de Eddy Van Halen en, Lonely is the Night, o te puede recordar a Warren DeMartini de Ratt en On the Other Side Of Midnight, cuyas guitarras son apabullantes.
