This young Rock n Roll 3-piece from the Netherlands, all at the beginning of their 20ies, have already played more than 220 live shows. Everything from small clubs to big festivals can be found in their gig history as well as opening slots for some of the big names of the business such as Saxon, Slash, Status Quo, Deep Purple, Mustasch and Chickenfoot. They recently finished the recordings of their second album called “Blessing In Disguise” which was produced by Peter van Elderen – better known as guitarslinger and frontman of Peter Pan Speedrock.
As if Thin Lizzy got extremely fat, that’s how the second album ‘Blessing in Disguise’ from the Dutch hard rockers Black-Bone sounds like. An old school rocking record which lets your blood flow even faster. The guys from Black-Bone are not the young dogs from Eindhoven Rockcity anymore, they now are the hungry wolves.
Their live experience with highlighting supports for Deep Purple, Status Quo, Megadeth and Chickenfoot is instantly recognizable in their new tracks, which were mixed by Peter Pan Speedrock-frontman Peter Van Elderen. Tracks like ‘Never Too Loud’, ‘Loaded-Weighted’ and ‘Nothing But History’ are piece by piece hardrock classics. In short: It’s like you’re injecting adrenaline straight in to the heart. Occasionally you will hear a portion of raw sludge.
Hardrock never dies, that is the case when you put ‘Blessing in Disguise’ on your (digital) turntable.
Black-Bone does it.
