Hell’s Gazelles – ‘Take Your Medicine’   2 comments

Following the single release, ‘Stone Cold’, from the EP, the full EP, ‘Take Your Medicine’, is now ready for imminent release. A more experientially crafted EP, ‘TYM’ pays homage to the greats, while emulating the new wave of rock talents. With major riffs, insane vocals and catchy choruses, it’s a tour de force of modern rock.

Lyrically original, with striking riffs and greater guitar involvement, ‘TYM’ is a truly equal band effort, dealing with current socio-political and personal issues, in a compact, yet complex way.

Andy Pilkington’s (Very Metal Art) artwork summarises the essence of the feelings behind ‘TYM’ in the Dr Strangechild persona, a theme further enhanced by the background of the insane asylum, over which he presides, in such a visually blatant terror inducing manner.

Give Me Something – Awesome riff and electrifyingly fast-paced drumming intro’s, more than ably assisted by those passionate vocals and high octane, rocked up melody. Hard, heavy, animal and enormously catchy. That’s a sound straight off the next new wave of classic rock compilation, for high-end rock mags. A band who truly belong in the classic rock arena. This is where true rock magic lies.

Out Of Time – Massive sound. Crushingly heavy riff intro, immediate rhythm and vocals designed just for modern rock. This is the new, old G’N’R’, filled with penetrating beat, hard edge, perfected sleaze melody and even the odd natural power scream in there. Ending on a defiant, tight drum hit, it’s a killer.

She Devil – Instant, hard and heavy drum hit intro. Getting right down into the rhythm, those vocals need no help at all. Just made for it. So catchy, there’s a slight southern rock feel to that sound too, expertly followed by that tasty rumbling drum section, leading right into another hugely lively, powered section, showing off CB’s vocals, to the best of their Seb Bach-esque abilities. Solid classic.

Stone Cold – Razor sharp riff intro! Burning hot, in flames of metal fire. That title’s so memorable and sung in such a catchy way. Space within the vocal sections gives the stunning accompaniments the chance to shine, whilst ensuring you never forget the astounding effect of the vocal notations. Absolute born rock stars. Standout track, in a standout EP.

Take Your Medicine – Bang! Startlingly alive drum intro. Crazy pace. Instinctive rhythm and sound. Humongous catch, rare vocal dexterity and an indescribably feel-good 90’s rock nostalgia about it. Seriously good R&R, par excellence. If there’s one band who should be on your radar this year, it’s Hell’s Gazelles.

Overall – The cream of the crop. Star quality, of the moment and made for rock longevity, this is the band that’ll take you back to the best of the past, while giving you concrete evidence that modern rock still matches that quality. ‘TYM’ is the solid proof of classic rock’s evolution and most importantly of all, that rock is not dead!

10/10 **********

For fans of G’N’R’, Skid Row, Sebastian Bach.
