When I first heard a couple of samples from the new Bullet Train Blast's album, I was blown away! I said yes, this album would kick some serious asses! Good old-fashioned and energetic heavy rock stuff with loud in-your-face guitars, a vocalist who knows how to sing and a tight musicianship!

 

"I'm Insane", which opens the album, is a furious rocker with a superb riffing and a catchy chorus line. For sure, a great opener. "Running Away" is good but nothin' really memorable. It's aggressive but it lacks a bit in the chorus. "The Storm" is a very good modern rocker while "Queen Of The Night" reminds me a bit of earlier Lynch Mob stuff. It has a brilliant riff, it's 'punchy' and has a solid chorus. The best track so far! "All The Girls" has a party Rock N' Roll mood and brings back memories from Sunset Boulevard dayz. The next track, "From The Underground", is a typical modern mid-tempo with some influences from Hinder and Daughtry. "Bang Bang Bang" is another excellent heavy in-your-face rocker that could easily appear in every early Skid Row record. "A Life In Glory" is ok and "Nothing Remains" is another personal favourite with it's groovy sound and the furious drumming work!! "Dead Man Walking" which closes this album is a good rocker too.

 

All in all, this is a superb heavy rockin' stuff with some pinches of modern hard rock as well. The new vocalist does an incredible job here and the guitar work in every track is a must hear for every guitar maniac out there. Their music is simple and they put heart and soul and that's the thing that counts the most when you play Rock N' Roll. They have some 'killer' tunes in this release but I would like some catchier choruse and hooks. Well done!

Very good sound and some cool riffage there. Definitely a CD I'd like to check out in full. Thanks for the heads up.

Not really my bag of chips, probably because of the modern sound, but I find myself really liking the chorus and guitar on 'Dead Man Walking' for some reason ... shame the verses annoy me. th_shrug.gif

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.

And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak.

    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
