Recensie: The Apocalypse Blues Revue – The Shape Of Blues To Come

3 augustus 2018|Categories: Recensies|Tags: |

Bluesmuziek met de volumeknop ver opengedraaid en ritmisch een 6/8 maat. Dat is de muziek van The Apocalypse Blues Revue , het hobbyproject van de metalband Godsmack. Verwacht niet de gebruikelijke furie van deze band. Als dit de vorm is die de bluesmuziek moet gaan krijgen dan laat maar. Er zijn anno nu genoeg bands en artiesten die op een frisse manier invulling geven aan de blues. Misschien is dit zij-project aardig voor Godsmack fans maar voor lezers van deze website is er zoveel beters te vinden.

As the legend goes, Robert Johnson infamously started his career by meeting the Devil at the crossroads. By the same token, you could say Apocalypse Blues Revue began playing at the end of the world. Co-founded by Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin and guitarist Tony Rombola and featuring vocalist Ray “Rafer John” Cerbone and bassist Brian Carpenter, the quartet honors blues traditions, while etching their stamp on the genre in blood.

Provogue is delighted to announce the signing of The Apocalypse Blues Revue, the incredible new project from Godsmack’s Shannon Larkin and Tony Rombola. “As far as blues goes, Apocalypse Blues Revue is a little heavier, a little darker, and has some punk rock attitude in the lyrics,” affirms Shannon. “We wanted to make something deep that will provoke thought. It had to be evil though. We’re not trying to make it happy. It’s called blues for a reason! It was also an opportunity to show the world what a phenomenal guitar player Tony is.”
