All Hell Breaks Loose

All Hell Breaks Loose by Black Star Riders
Released: May 2013
Label: Nuclear Blast
Not quite Thin Lizzy, but as close as you could get: Four of five Riders were also in Lizzy's 2013 lineup; Scott Gorham's been in Lizzy since 1974. Ex-Almighty singer Ricky Warwick, channeling Phil Lynott's warm-blooded phrasing and hard-luck optimism, is the sole Irishman. His Yank mates mix shamrock-and-emerald folk into their sweet percussive heaviness anyway, and by the reggae-tinged blues closer they're returning to Belfast. The urban romanticism feels immediately classic: "Way down in Suckerville tonight/ We're all trying to lose a little more slowly." Oily maybe, but holy, too.
