SIDEBURN – Jail
Swiss hard rock band who assuredly tip their influence cap to all of AC/DC’s catalog on this new album Jail. Vocalist Roland Pierrehumbert has one of those gravelly whiskey laced voices, akin to Brian Johnson and Dan McCafferty of Nazareth, on standout material like “Good Boy”, “Devil and Angel” and the title track. Lead guitarist Boris has the blues boogie spirit of Angus Young along with the chops and feel of Jimmy Page throughout these 12 songs, hitting home some memorable licks and solos on party anthems such as “”Rock ‘n’ Roller” or the slower “Long Beard And Boogie”.
If you don’t mind the blatant hero worship, Jail can fit in your collection nicely between Powerage and Back In Black.
