Before The Fire by Rival Sons
Released: Jun 2009
Label: Front Line Music
It's tempting to compare Rival Sons, what with their hip-grinding riffage and shrieking vocals, to the mighty Led Zeppelin. But it's The Jeff Beck Group (which released the amazing album Truth in 1968) that makes for a more accurate comparison. Rather than Zep's monolithic sense of pop dynamics, Before the Fire is rooted in The J.B.G.'s dirty rhythm and blues and hazy psychedelia. Guitarist Scott Holiday is a shredder, one who cuts across the groove every chance he gets. Bassist Robin Everhart and drummer Mike Miley are equally agile; the pair knows how to balance swing and brute strength.
