The hell-bound iron horse is picking up speed again and races towards an exciting future with red-hot steaming engines and well oiled gears …DEVIL’S TRAIN ARE BACK!
With the band’s ten year anniversary coming up, and two well received albums under their belts, the European answer to Black Label Society, The Dead Daisies and Black Stone Cherry presents us with a killer new long-player. For this purpose, singer and band master-mind RD Liapakis (Mystic Prophecy/Steel Prophet) joined forces with drum monster Jörg Michael (ex-Saxon/Stratovarius/Axel Rudi Pell/Running Wild…), low-end legend Jens Becker (Grave Digger/ex-Running Wild/ex-X-Wild) and six-string wizard Dan Baune (Lost Sanctuary/ex-Monument). This line-up, which could undoubtedly be dubbed a super-group, delivers a modern yet raw and honest album that bubbles over with visceral energy, southern sleaze and sex appeal. “Ashes & Bones” features a fat and polished contemporary production, without ironing out any of that good ol’ fashioned Hard Rock attitude. All the guys deliver a stellar performance front to back, which sounds at times unbelievably vigorous and aggressive, at other times easy and laid back. Every note has the listener hearing and feeling the quartet’s love for traditional Blues and Rock’n’Roll, but wrapped in a fresh and exciting new package, with a mighty pinch of Metal and without the typical retro antics. DEVIL’S TRAIN are damn tough, DEVIL’S TRAIN do their thing and DEVIL’S TRAIN are absolutely authentic!
For fans of:
Black Label Society, Whitesnake, Black Stone Cherry, The Dead Daisies & Alter Bridge.
