Kentucky based Black Stone Cherry plays straight ahead rocknroll with southern rock influences added with a touch of postgrunge. Think Black Label Society mixed with Soundgarden in a Lynyrd Skynyrd suit,their music is rather timeless so I don?t think they have to be afraid not to be successful on radio coz there will always be rockers out there that cares more about the music than the hits. Chris Robertson has a powerful and bluesy voice that reminds a bit of Chris Cornell of Audioslave/Soundgarden,BSC?s riffs smells sweat,whiskey and cowboy hats for miles. Download the new single "Lonely train" at their label?s website and see for yourselves: www.roadrun.com/artists/BlackStoneCherry/music.aspx
Easily the best new rock band out. Saw them live opening for Three Days Grace and let?s just say the headlining act had a VERRRYY hard time keeping up. Chatted with them for about a half hour after the show and they?re so young and humble...it?s hard to believe these kids can make this music. They just kept talking about how awesome the new Black Crowes CD was and what a good band that is.
The CD is outstanding, but picture all that energy (especially the drummer) rumbling off the stage. These guys own the stage without being pretentious and are absolutely the best thing to happen to rock in years! Everybody from metal to Skynyrd to blues fans will love these guys.
Great Cd for head-bangin, driving, partyin, or just chillin out. This album ROCKS!!
