Review: 'Devil Electric'
'Devil Electric'   

-  Label: 'Kozmik Artifactz'
-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '11th August 2017'

Our Rating:
Australian riff monsters, Devil Electric and pitched as being for fans of Black Sabbath, Graveyard, Kadavar, The Dead Weather, and Blues Pills.

Sure, it’s all been done before, and pretty much any band with a bent for lumbering riffs invites comparison to Sabbath. But when it’s done well, does it really matter? Sabbath were the progenitors of heavy metal, and popular opinion seems to be that they invented all the riffs. And it’s more or less true. Equally, Devil Electric stand alongside contemporaries like Black Moth.

‘Monologue (Where You Once Walked)’ sets the Devil Electric stall out nicely: a five and a half-minute mid-tempo riff-driven beast, with chunky, thick guitars and a thudding rhythm section, it’s a proper old-school rock tune.

And across the album’s nine tracks, Devil Electric keep it heavy, keep it solid, and keep it riffy. Pierina O’Brien’s vocals are gutsy, but also melodic. In combination, it’s a good balance which works well.
