Full Houze is a five piece rock band (the type with two guitars to give you a clue on their style) from Thessalonika, Greece. The band´s sound is Southern Rock with influences clearly based on the likes of Lynyrd Sknynrd and the Allman Brothers. Certainly Panos Doucas on vocals has got a very realistic American accent and the guitar sounds are quite in keeping (I am reasonably sure it is a Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster dual guitar attack).
The songs are based around strong riffs with a good vocal delivery and there are memorable tracks on display here, most notably ´Streets Of Town´ itself with a really great extended guitar solo which lets loose. There are a couple of tracks which are a bit dated in sound and style such as ´Dancin´ Doll´ which has some very 70s lyrics and ´Draggin´ Around´ which is somewhat predictable. Having said that, the guitar duel on the latter track is good fun.
