INGLORIOUS – We Will Ride
UK hard rockers Inglorious have returned with an energetic new opus entitled "We Will Ride" and the kick-ass thing consists of the band’s strongest material to date. The record packs a punch and there is plenty of color and flavor to the fiery brew that they have concocted this time around. What you get here are great riffs and killer vocals, a rhythm section that consistently provides fat, rumbling grooves from start to finish, and a subtle bluesy and melancholic vibe that slivers and slides underneath it all.
Perhaps if Led Zeppelin, early Whitesnake, and Rainbow around the time of "Difficult to Cure" had a wild and spirited jam session together, the result would be something akin to "We Will Ride"? Either way, the album is highly varied and shows that Inglorious have matured as songwriters and sharpened their skills with respect to crafting memorable tunes that possess longevity and substance. There are several standouts present on the disc, but I have a certain thing for the femme fatale-themed "Medusa".
Like I said, "We Will Ride" is the best record by this talented outfit yet and pretty much every track is begging to be played live here. The artwork looks stunning too and the booklet is amazing. I short, I just fucking love this raunchy, epic album – and trust me when I say that you will too
