Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – Blood & Fire


Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – Blood & Fire
Black Records / No Death - 2010
Rock/Punk
Waardering: *****


Out of sight, out of mind. Something very true uttered about a lovely band called Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. At one point they jumped into my eye thanks to their record The Royal Society recorded in 2004 with the help of none-other then Chris Goss in the incredible Rancho De La Luna studio in Palm Desert. Not their best record to that date though. Their new and third official album Blood & Fire is! A perfect hit and a rock ’n roll battering ram, which cannot mean anything else, but a glorious return to the front and a well-deserved breakthrough for the band. With pounding drums, swirling guitars and riffs that can blues the hell out of you but also sting you in the gut the band launch their attack. Add to this: a singer named Guy McKnight who conquered some of his drug-demons and sounds like a manic and savage wild man out to get even. And the result is a gothic, psychotic, rock noir, and punk album with an everlasting mystical atmosphere, which comes close to perfection. Woohaa!

  2. It is a nice album. But not so good as Horse Of The Dog and Royal Society.
