An assured and confident blast of bluesy, hard hitting hard rock.

A new outfit beginning to build an impressive live reputation and amass quite an online following, Three For All are a group of hardened veterans who among them can boast stints with Ace Frehley, Leslie West, Carmine Appice and Tony Martin, once of Black Sabbath. Add to that the fact that Three For All isn't the trio of Steve "Budgie" Werner's (drums) and brothers Anthony (vocals and bass) and Carl Fragnito's (guitars) first time working together (all three were members of US melodic rockers Black Lace with vocalist Maryann Scandiffio in the mid-eighties) and you can rest assured this isn't some wet behind the ears outfit desperately trying to find their feet.

Instead 'Live For The Music' is an assured and confident blast of bluesy, hard hitting hard rock that harks back to a time before gimmicks and bandwagon jumping were the norm. Using the likes of Cream, Hendrix, early (first couple of albums) Kiss, The Allman Brothers, or Led Zeppelin as a basis, Three For All hammer out a style of honest, what you see is what you get rock that most bands have long forgotten about - and boy do they do it well. The threesome lock together impressively, laying down thick grooves and beats that hook you in from the off, following that up with riffs which cajole and seduce, rather than battering you into submission; giving an easy air of confidence which younger less seasoned musicians would shy away from for fear of not being "cutting edge". Add to that simple, clean and clear vocals from Anthony and there's no denying that what this outfit are presenting feels like it belongs to days gone by, but in a (very) good way.

Wanting to groove and strut? Try out 'All I Want' for size. Hoping to rock out in a simplistic, yet undeniably good time fashion? Spend some time with 'Mr Bad Luck' (the title even feels like the work of a certain Mr Simmons of Kiss fame, and the song itself sounds like it too). Whereas if it is the bluesy stomp of classic Clapton, Bruce and Baker or a certain Hendrix of Jimi-ness that gets you excited, then slide and sway to 'Vampire Love', 'Live For The Music' or 'Goin' Down'. All the while Carl plays the ass off his guitar, tearing into solos where the need arises, keeping things simple and melodic when that is the medicine that'll find the cure, while his bass brother Anthony, and "Budgie" behind the kit lock the grooves to the floor.

If you are looking for an album where you can joyously proclaim "that's how they used to do it", while never feeling like the past is simply being repeated, then join this Three For All and simply 'Live For The Music'.
