Scorpion Child – Scorpion Child


Scorpion Child – Scorpion Child
Nuclear Blast – 2013
Rock, Seventies, Blues, Stoner
Rated: *****

Want to hear something timeless and classic? Want to wear flowers in your hair and move to San Francisco? Want to be around when Zeppelin and Sabbath redefined rock music? Get on board with Scorpion Child. They bring all of that and then something and that something is even more bombastic than elephants playing drums. Hell, they seem to reinvent that classic stuff all over again and when they forgo that timeless era it uses seventies kraut and psychedelic stuff that mesmerizes. Brand new and shiny riffs that sound like lost friends from the hazy days and electric-kandy-kolored-tangerine drum fills. Infectious, catchy, moving, stirring and simply awesome. And listen to that voice; holy freakin Jezus! We have moved back through time to discover something, which we call ‘round’ and let’s call it a wheel! And if you don’t know what the hell I’m referring to now; just listen to Scorpion Child and let that Jurassic venom move through your veins like smoky dances…

  2. I shouldn't like this as it is so retro sounding and the band seem to have ignored any musical genres for the last 30 years but ...... it rocks like a bastard and plays like an old favourite album ... brilliant!
