Bible of the Devil
Freedom Metal
January 2009
Released: 2008, Cruz Del Sur Music
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Bruce Sanchez

FREEDOM METAL is Bible of the Devils’ fifth full-length studio album. The Chicago, Illinois, based group offers up an excellent album with high quality song writing and performances.

The album starts off with a Black Sabbath style chord progression and then jumps into straight head bobbing rock and roll. Guitar harmonies are abundant in this album, an absolutely wonderful use of twin guitars to the highest pedigree. This is an album you can put on during a party and your classic-rock friend will say, “Who is this and why have I never heard of them?” “The Turning Stone” sounds like it belongs in the background of a movie. It has an introspective quality to it that definitely lends itself to a training montage or as a turning point where the main character realizes he must quit running and face his adversary. One of the albums highlights is “Ol’ Girl”, a remarkable tribute to Thin Lizzy. Vocalist Mark Hoffman does his best Phil Lynott impression, and the guitar solo is spot on. But Bible of the Devil is more than just one of those throwback metal bands. They truly capture the spirit of rock and roll and heavy metal and produce a sort of genre-less rock-fest. And honestly, there’s nothing wrong with that.

This is no bullshit, great rock with a metal tint. Give it a listen.
