Blues Pills’s self-titled debut album is a journey through time. The band manages to incorporate and mix together soul, blues and rock’n’roll to deliver an incredibly energetic performance where everything is in the right place.
The first track, “High Class Woman”, is also the first single and it introduces all the main elements of the band’s sound, from Elin Larsson’s amazingly incisive voice to the fine guitarwork of Dorian Sorriaux. Blues Pills shifts from standard paces to surprising progressions, like the noteworthy half-ballad “Black Smoke”. “River” is a more pensive, almost melancholic song, that shows the band’s ability to portray different moods. The album features previously released songs, like “Devil Man”, or rearrangements from older works. Continue reading »

What happens if you put an actress, a cellist and 2 established musicians in the same band? An explosion of energy and pure rock music. Cherry & the Vipers is a Finnish rock band is formed by singer and actress Kirsi Ylijoki, the guitarist is Samuel Leminen, the bassist is Jarkko Strengell and finally we have Apocalyptica‘s Eicca Toppinen playing the drums instead of his cello. Someone could think that’s something peculiar but you have to absolutly check out their debut album, it’s a good work, and if you like rock music, well, this is the band that you were looking for. “Rakkauden punk” introduces the album and it gives the right boost with Kirsi‘s scratchy vocals that give us an overall vision about their explosive music style.
