Back to the future! This is what comes to mind when listening to this newest concoction of our favorite rockers from 'AC/DC' from down under. Similar to other albums, this really starts to sound like some 'Krokus' production gone to Australia - some Hoodoo right there.
Cookie cutter style, nicely built and very solid Hard Rock of the Heavy Metal kind, with down-to-earth riffs, of which some of them seem to have matured some more since we last heard them in a studio album back in 2008.
After a long, indeed a very long waiting time (the former album 'Stiff Upper Lip' released in 2000) our Heavy Metal swinging band AC/DC finally presented 'Black Ice' - in 2008, no kidding, almost a decade later than the former (ok, ok, I get it - not quite a decade, but still...).
Okay, I get it - we write the Year of the Lord 2014 and this 'AC/DC' record is so old it should already have turned to dust - along with everything else that lived back then. Right?? But you know what? It has not - and many bands are still there that rocked through music halls at that time to exactly this kind of music.
