As someone that grew up during the height of 80’s Hard Rock, it’s nice to hear a band still keeping that high energy sound alive.
I’m pretty sure if Divebomb/Tribunal wanted to release more Bugzy I wouldn’t be opposed to that.
To think, initially this project almost didn’t see the light of day,…..
When Tracii and Phil decided to bury the hatchet (and not in each other) and released last year’s amazing The Missing Peace, it was like all things were right in the world again.
On the surface, it seems like a quiet doomy sort of album with a Pagan rock feel, but there are elements of Alt Rock legends Sonic Youth, layered with Melvins doom meets The Cramps.
It’s been said before that the man in black has remained a Classic Rock mystery for a long time, yes his timeless licks and guitar vibes have paved the ways to so many Classic Rock cuts through the years, and even at the helm in Deep Purple and Rainbow, his image was always one of a very private and enigmatic character.
Entertaining you whilst raising awareness about issues that directly and indirectly affect us all, it goes to prove that no one really does it better than Levellers
Lyrically, I would describe this latest album as fearless.
The current line up of the band, one that has now celebrated its tenth anniversary feels like perhaps the most accomplished one to date.
In 2015 the band Everthrone released easily one of the best albums that year (The Dawning, which in fact topped my Top 5 of the year without much competition.)
