It took me a while to figure out where I already heard this kind of free-wheeling style. This chanting about the soundscape that kinda goes all over the place, but still keeps you glued to the boombox. Even if it is not quite ‘your style’. 

Right!

Lenore S. Fingers it was, from Italy. Alternative Metal of sorts with a somewhat confusing song structure. Only here, Space Cult present a similar tune but fully embedded on rocky shores only. With no metal anywhere in sight.

And you know what? Their newest and first EP also contains a fair share of the recently … [...] Click to raid more!

This groovy grind was already visible when The Riven released their 2017 blurb Blackbird. This good ol’ whiskey-fueled rock, filled with stoner-esque pleasures to the brim. The good old times of sensual rock suddenly beckoning you all over again.

You do find them still, those bands with a style that kinda went out of fashion many years ago. But not so often anymore. Dirty Sound Magnet in their old incarnation was one. Or again Last Bullet or Hey Satan with their grouchy, stony beat.

This one took me some time to digest, I admit. Sniveling rage gone and replaced by what? Lzzy Hale growing old, going pop and full blues rock on me? For sure this isn’t what we expected from Halestorm for their newest, lengthily announced 2015 magic potion Into the Wild Life.

Methinks that Halestorm tries to jump on to the mainstream train this time. Which would of course be much more alluring money-wise than anything else that the band could generate screaming about outside, off the beaten track. But then, they do this mainstream thing Halestorm style, which is kind of reassuring. [...] Click to raid more!

I think the Canadians have a penchant for the South. Same as the Germans do, just check out The New Roses.

It really looks that way.

And who can blame them? Would you want to stay in the cold North when sun-drenched highways, whiskey galore, bikes, dusty bars, and hot chicks beckon you? Well, whilst most stay put, they at least portray this Southern Rock feeling through their tune. RockmusicRaider already covered bands like the folks from Vinyl Hero or others screaming about the soundscape in the best Mad Max fashion. Albeit not from this genre. 

Now, some folks [...] Click to raid more!
