Black Paisley “Ramber” (self-released) Style: Melodic

black paisley rambler coverThe first riff of the opening track,” Damned,” makes your sense of a smell of diesel. Straight ahead, uncomplicated, hard-driving blues-based hard rock ‘n roll. If the season had been right for it, this one would crave on an open cab and a motorway—a very nice start on Swedish hard rockers Black Paisley’s third effort. The band features former Electric Boys guitarist Franco Santunione. Stefan Blomqvist handles the other guitar the lead vocals, Jam Emanuelsson plays bass, and behind the drums, we find Robert Kazari. Album mixed by Deathwitch /Dundertåget/Imperial State Electric/Humbucker man Robert Pehrsson and its sound is fat and nice. “Without Us” continues in the same vein, but with a slightly more radio-friendly and melodic chorus, which also applies to the next track – “Higher Love.” There’s something familiar with the lead vocals, which I at first couldn’t pinpoint. Then I realized he reminds me of Y&T’s Dave Meniketti in his med and lowers register. A great thing in my book! “Save The Best” keeps the pace up, and “Timeless Child” shows no traces of slowing down. All in all, this is a great, rocking, power rocker with great melodies I can recommend!
