What happens when three former members of Buckcherry reunite? They have transformed into a new powerhouse rock band in the form of Black Robot!
Black Robot are influenced
by classic hard rock legends like AC/DC and Aeromsith, while creating something
new with their own distinctive sound.
The band are driven by the vocals of Detroit native Huck Johns. If you haven't heard Johns sing before you are in for a treat. Producer Dave Cobb really pushes Johns to new heights on this CD and brings out some of Hucks best performances! But Black Robot aren't all about the vocals, the rest of band featuring Yogi Lonich on guitars, Jonathan Brightman on bass and Devon Glenn on drums play their asses off on this CD. I am pleasantly surprised how different this material is from their past music with Buckcherry.
You have the stadium anthem
"Baddass" and the cover of J.J. Cale's "Cocaine" which are
sure to pull you in upon first listen.
"Momma Don't Cry" has an awesome Jimi Hendrix like vibe to it, whilst "I'm In Love" slows down the pace, a very cool ballad. This song could be a huge hit for the band if they get the right breaks and some god darn airplay! "Money" is an infectious upbeat tune, "In My Car" has a good classic 70's rock vibe to it reminding me of early Aerosmith, and "Love On A .45? sees Johns channelling his inner Zeppelin on this catchy tune!
This is a great album with Black Robot proving once again the rock is far from dead!!
