The Devil And The Almighty Blues – The Devil And The Almighty Blues (CD)
Nothern Europe bands have all something in common : They kick some serious asses. Could it be Stoner with Truckfighters, Doom with Monolord, Retro Rock with Graveyard, they just get it. And The Devil and the Almighty Blues who are hailing from Norway, fits nicely in the last genre I mentioned, with a subtle touch of Doom and Blues.
Deeply taking the same path as their peers from Sweden (Graveyard, Horisont), these dudes crafted a very cool sounding Retro Rock album. Indeed it has that raw, vintage tone that is so distinctive from all those bands, nothing really new you’ll tell me… Well maybe. But it works and these guys do it wonderfully well.
What can maybe added is The Devil and the Almighty Blues adds a darker, gloomier, slower layer on some of their songs. An interesting approach I think they should experiment a bit more to distinguish themselves even more from the already very crowded scene of Retro Rock bands.- Mr. Fuzz, More Fuzz
