Dirty Honey – EP/LP

0

I really like such young bands…especially when they come from the States. Young musicians paying tribute to the glory days of the past but at the same time adding something special and essential to the mix. Having said that, Dirty Honey is not simply a copycat of the past but a well-worthy addition to the list of bands with a true and meaningful potential. The quartet is trying to recapture the trademark sound of Led Zeppelin and AC/DC but simultaneously adding their own sonic elements. Quite honestly, they reminded me of what The Black Crowed did in the early 90s where classic rock met a modern kind of sonic approach.

Dirty Honey’s “EP/LP” (interesting or what…?) is comprised of 14 tracks which are marked by inspired guitar riffs, beautiful vocals and an overall well-crafted song structure. The extra special element is the fact that almost all the songs are catchy and anthemic thus leaving you under the impression that they will go down really well on a live environment. Quite fitting, if you ask me, since Dirty Honey are about to embark on a European Tour as an opening act for KISS, Guns N’ Roses and Rival Sons. Not bad, at all…

Dirty Honey’s debut studio offering is a really hopeful start for a band that tries to prove Gene Simmons wrong when he claims that rock is dead. Yes, rock as we knew it is surely commercial dead. But the quality of new rock bands is intact…

Highlight: Nowadays Dirty Honey together with Mammoth VWH are the two best choices for US classic rock bands.
