Label: Independent
Release date: April 15, 2022
It’s album review time and today we have quite the ‘groovy’ record to talk about so let’s get into it!
With this new track list of 8 new songs, it’s clear to me the inspiration and purpose behind this record was to create the perfect ‘Country Rock/Rock and Roll’ experience for the listener using blooming production and adrenaline-fueled riffs and lyrics.
This is the type of album you’d play in a fast car going along the Highway or jumping into your motorbike on a clear day and spending hours just following the road listening to an album as jacked up as this one.
If I had to compare this sound based on lyricism and adrenaline I’d have to look at a band like ‘Black Label Society’ who are often labeled ‘Biker Metal’ and it’s for the same reasons I’d put this record in that category, or a band like ‘Rev Theory’ who have that high energy, badass ‘Hard Rock’ feel to them that utilize the personalities and conviction of the artists involved to create not only a good album but an exciting one.
If you’re in the mood for an adrenaline shot or just like your music ‘high energy’ then this is the perfect album for you! Corban Skipwith
