An album that brings back the old Heavy Rock philosophy; grab a double whiskey, ramp up the volume, and be prepared to be entertained.

Blessed Hellride, just by the type of genre of music their background is from and the band name, shows there is definitely a big connection to Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society. Their debut album screams power groove and Heavy Rock. Having fired out two EP's ('Evil Side Of Life' and 'Booze 'N' Roll'), now they have finally released their debut album, titled 'Bastards & Outlaws'.

With their intro track leading to 'Hellorado', you know this album is going to be full of character that displays the true meaning of what it means to be a "boozy, biker, American Southern Heavy Rock" type band. They have one powerful rhythm section, and the guitars are the core to making their groove so fierce, gritty and chunky. No flamboyant guitar solos, and lead getting ahead of itself; it's how tight the rhythm guitar parts should be... exhilarating! Tiny Fuel's vocals are key to Blessed Hellride, as he imprints their own identity. They aren't vocals you would forget. In 'Overdrive Junkie' he creates suspense and radiates Thespian qualities, melodrama and comedic value. 'Dead Man Blues' would be another example, and it could possibly be the theme tune of 'Ghost Rider'.

Groove is the muscle behind this band; their mid-tempo style enables them to achieve an excellent solid rhythm unit that holds its own. 'Moonshine Saloon' is significant of this. There is definitely a nod to the work of Pantera and their 'Cowboys from Hell' era. Sadly, the drums from "Captain Hellride" are lost way behind in the background for such a power groove album. The norm is drums at the forefront, fiery and ablaze, but they feel tense and ridged; he needs to sit back and enjoy the groove and work with the bass. Had they done this, they would have, without a doubt, nailed it.

It is an album that brings back the old Heavy Rock philosophy; grab a double whiskey, ramp up the volume, and be prepared to be entertained.
