Throwback hard rock with this Italian act. Voodoo Highway love the deep organs, Blackmore-infused guitar licks and bluesy vocals all around with these 10 songs. Recording an EP in 2010, they quickly move into full length ranks and certainly promote their affection for Deep Purple circa early to mid 70’s on standouts like “The Fire Will Burn Away” and toe tapper “Running Around”. It’s alluring to know younger musicians want to keep the spirit of conventional hard rock alive for a new generation- even channeling great harmonica work on the jam-worthy title track.
People who grew up in the pre-video age will hoist their fists in the air for Voodoo Highway. They should tour the world with Vanderbuyst and Black Country Communion – and not be self-contained for long.
