Black n Roll
Released: 2010, Armoury Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Black River is a Metal all star band that features members of both Behemoth and Dimmu Borgir as well as Vader and more. BLACK N ROLL is their second release and it came out earlier this year in Europe and now it finally makes it debut here in North America via Armory Records.
The songs on the riff heavy BLACK N ROLL are not what you’d expect to hear considering the group members. For the die-hards there are some Cookie Monster style vocals to satisfy but for the most part Taff does an excellent job singing. There is allot of prodding guitar that just drags on in a repetitious manner. Very stoner-esque and not too far removed from some Danzig material.
One of the most surprising albums of the year. Almost guaranteed to make your Top 20 for 2010. Well worth a listen.
