ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY       Open Fire
Relapse Records (release: March 6th, 2007)

Forget about the hostile warrior with the winged helmet on the cover: this stuff is neither Power nor Viking Metal. But if you've ever dreamt of LYNYRD SKYNYRD sounding like MOTÖRHEAD, this one's for you, no doubt ! The songs are pure Southern Rock, but the voice is incredibly harsher than what you would expect from this kind of music. And of course, the sound is louder and heavier than good old SKYNYRD albums. Open Fire is bourbon brewed in Dioxin barrels. Quite a modern way of killing, indeed !David
