They will also tour with Whitesnake later this year and appeared at the Download Festival.
That alone should tell you the type of sound to expect – big rock anthems that should appeal to air guitar fans and anyone who gets a musical kick from flexing their fingers in the shape of devil horns.
The band is comprised of Cormac Neeson (vocals), Paul Mahon (guitarist), Micky Waters (bass) and James Heatley (drummer) and based on the strength of their debut EP, Keep Believing’ in July 2005, they are already being tipped as potential breakthrough acts of the year in this genre.
Certainly, their style is all about delivering classic rock ‘n’ roll anthems in the style of Led Zeppelin and Thin Lizzy – records that are big on grandiose values, wailing lyrics and frenzied guitar solos.
But they also draw from contemporary influences, too. Of the tracks worth mentioning on the album, Preachin’ is an expert fusion of hard rock values, slide guitar and gospel that works just as effectively as when bands like Razorlight and The Killers have used it to augment their genre sound.
