Hellbilly Club - Terror Tales 2018



For over 23 years now  the Hellbilly Club as been dishing out some tasty and at times eclectic rockabilly/ psychobilly. With a rap sheet of 7 albums under their belts, this outfit has proven to be a damn good and unique.They also aren't afraid to change things up. It's been 4 years  since they released the impressive "Subhumanos", their last album.Now  their eighth album, "Terror Tales"is out and one again they have shifted gears.This time out we get 12 tracks of damn stout old school psychobilly. It's also a big shot of horror, from ghost ,witches, the undead and more.But don't be fooled here this is one fun ride.We also get a blast of hard driving slapping bass and twangy guitars, that make this a brisk and kool affair.Highlights include: "She Came Back From The Grave", "Spanish Kats Attack", "You'll Be My Victim", and "Lost In The Jungle"
       
       With "Terror Tales",the Hellbilly Club have shown they still have a whack a gas in the tank and they can still surprise .This is a pretty strong release that you should throw some of your hard earned cash down on. Highly recommended!

  One of France's best keep  rock n roll secrets is the band Hot Slap.Since 2014 they have played all over their country but have rarely strayed outside of France.However they have  gained a rep as a top shelf neo rockabilly/rock n roll outfit in their homeland  .Back in 2015 they released their debut album "Play Legends".It's an all cover affair that's pretty sweet and showed that this was a band to watch out for.While, now their back with the killer sophomore album,"  Lookin’ For The Good Thing!". This puppy struts in, full of  swagger and backs it up big.We get  a 50/50 split of originals and covers totally 14 tracks, that gives you a good bang for your buck.It's a kool and sharp shot of neo rockabilly with a healthy kick of the blues mixed in.They also throw in a little country just to spice things up.From start to finish,this is one damn strong dish, that will leave you pleased .Highlights include; "Something In The Water:, "Better Than", " I Was Your Man" and "Sometimes"

 
     The Hot Slap have scored a direct winner with "Lookin’ For The Good Thing!"This is one album you should snag up.Highly recommended!

Running From Daylight - Elvis Ain't Dead Yet 2018



    Since crawling out of the primordial muck of Southwestern Ontario in 2017,  Running From Daylight  have been on a tare.  First came their 3 song ep "Coffin For Two" and then they hit back with| the kool single  "Mary Jane" .Along the way these young psycho upstarts have manged to snag some major airplay and not just in Canada. Not standing still they have just unleashed  their debut album, "Elvis Ain't Dead Yet".This puppy snarls and bites with 7 tracks  of  mainly rockin' psychobilly. They also add shots of punkabilly,horror, spaghetti and hard rock into the mix. It's a  fast and a bit of a loose ride that delivers.Highlights include: " Elvis Ain't Dead Yet", "Mary Jane", Between The Eyes" and "Whole Damn Bottle"
       
             One has to be impressed with Running From Daylight, in less than a year they have put out 3 strong releases .As for "Elvis Ain't Dead Yet",it's a pretty stout debut album that shows this is a band that has it going on and is one you may want to keep an eye on . Recommended

Beat Devils - Dig My Beat 2018



It's been 5 years now since the Beat Devils unleashed their last album, the kool all cover  "Touchdown".Since then they have added the single" Radio Dog"(2014) and the surprising and head turning video single "Night Falls Down" (2015) to an all ready stout discography. This is one old school psychobilly outfit that knows how to change it up and let the creative juices flow.Not to be contend these cats have now struck back with their 5th  studio release, the impressive "Dig My Beat"This puppy clocks in with 13 tracks that mix  old school psychobilly and neorockabilly. They also include "Night Falls Down" a country tune that borders on, dare I say Americana.Overall this may be their best album yet.The band manages to change gears a couple times here and all the tracks pretty much sound different. It rocks hard and then pulls you back,then rocks again.As a result ,it's a sweet ride.Highlights include: "Dynamite Eyes", Baby's Got Me Wrong, "Lonely Boy" and "Dig My Beat".
           
     The Beat Devils have scored another winner with "Dig My Beat".It is a damn good album that makes for a fine listening and your better half will thank you for it .Highly recommended!!
