Dave Evans - Judgement Day

Original AC/DC vocalist (and co founder!) Dave Evans latest release Judgement Day, comes via Rocksector Records.

This album was originally released back in 2008, and is now being pushed as Dave has a short UK tour planned for the end of May.

The sound itself is nicely uncluttered, the guitars all low slung and with a nice bluesy tone. The AC/DC comparisons are inevitable, and opening track 'We Don't Dance To Your Song', really sets the tone for this album, and the AC/DC comparisons continue with "Little Headbanger", it's not dissimilar to "Let There Be Rock". The vocals are reminiscent of Dave's AC/DC replacement Bon Scott, but is slightly let down by lyrics, which are a little clumsy and cliche' at times. Don't get me wrong, this album isn't all about paying homage to AC/DC, at times it tips its hat in the direction of NWoBHM bands like Saxon etc, so there's a little diversity there.

If you like your rock in the classic AC/DC vein, with a touch of Saxon thrown in for good measure then you really should check this album out.

Good old fashioned low slung dirty blues boogie rock for ya!

Rating 9/10
