Dec20. So, I did know that Phil was the guitarist in Motorhead, but what I did not know, was that the Bastard Sons are Phil's actual sons and Attack! Attack! former vocalist, Neil Starr. Well, Neil's vocals here are freakin' awesome, so I guess I'll have to go check out some of his previous band now.
Early impression of the album as a whole is, wow - close to the perfect rock sound. I am getting a lot of Hellacopters vibes here and they are the top of the tree for hard rock 'n' roll for me.
Things start with a cool riff and a slow build up with a song that does not sound unlike Aussies, The Screaming Jets. 'We're the Bastards' also serves as a great way to introduce the band and provide a band chant. 'Son of a Gun' ups the pace and starts off reminding me of The Pretty Reckless. 'Promises are Poison' was the first song I heard and gave me the Hellacopters feels, meaning I then had to listen to this album immediately. I have had this spinning in the background whilst doing work and it was 'Born to Roam' that really grabbed me. What a cool bluesy, stonerish, dirty rock 'n' roll song. Those vocals are divine. So, that is four songs straight into my H100 for 2020 and this one is going towards the top.
'Animals' has some of Phil's Motorhead riffing. This is made for the arenas with a great crowd chant thrown in for good measure. Holy shit, the gems continue. How's the swagger of 'Bite My Tongue'? The slow groove of 'The Desert Song' was the other one that stood out from the rest when I was playing this in the background. 'Keep Your Jacket On' brings some The Sword-like riffing to the mix. The country tinges crossed with a bouncy, fuzzed out riff makes 'Straight to Hell' quite fun too. 'Hate Machine' has some 80s metal vibes. 'Destroy' is a straight up punk song. Of course I love it, though I can see others not digging this one. And then we tone things right back, for the slower 'Waves'. This one will need more listens, but the bass is very noticable on first listens. It certainly finishes heavier and a good finish to the album.
Wow. Rock like this and Massive Wagons have me excited again, after a lot of my long time favourites have gone all pop, this is what I need. This also reminded me of several Aussie bands in places (inc. Grinspoon). I could listen to this on repeat (and did all evening and night). I just added every song bar one into my 2020 H100 straight up. 4.5/5
