Bombay Black - Love You To Death
With influences that include the likes of Mötley Crüe, Kiss, Pantera, Nickelback, Seether, Disturbed, Van Halen, Journey, Def Leppard, King's X, Type O Negative, you can bet your soul that US rockers Bombay Black are hoping to deliver a solid and varied album with Love You To Death, and to be totally fair they really do deliver. The band manage to combine all of the aforementioned influences and come up with a solid contemporary sound, whilst delivering some great tunes along the way. Songs like 'Reign Over Me', 'Love You To Death', 'Demons Down', 'Black Widow' and 'New Psycho' really do showcase the bands versatility. Erik's vocals are well suited to the songs and the bands sound, and Devil Jim delivers some great guitar work. The Rhythm section are solid too, equally at home on the out and out rockers as they are on the reggae / ska inspired 'Give Yourself To Me'.
