Royal Blood: Debut Album Review

Brit Rock has a new king! Well, two kings. They’re names are Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher, the sole members of Royal Blood. If you have a hankering for something new, meaty, and reminiscent of garage blues rock then look no further.

I know that this may sound a bit premature; already declaring them kings and such, but in my personal opinion that’s what they are. The credentials are here: they beat out Coldplay, Alt-J and One Direction for best British Group at this years Brit Awards. Oh, looking for more? OK, they also won the 2015 NME award for Best New Band, beating out FKA Twigs and Jungle, and they won the 2015 NME award for Best Live Band, beating out Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys. That is an impressive first year for the band, three big awards; as well as beating out many big name bands.

Now, on to the music, the reason why they have won and the reason why I gave itunes my money for their album. The album begins with “Out of the Black”, a heavy duty number that feels like it belongs to a metal band when it first starts. As it goes through you notice the how well the drums and lead guitar. They are on a level that you feel psychic Siamese twins are playing together. Third track on the list we have “Figure it Out”, misleading at first it lulls you into thinking that maybe this band can go soft. Then just under a minute in the song kicks into over drive, hits the after burners and carries you away with it. Lastly of the songs to be talked about we have “Little Monster”. Now meaty could be the term used to described this song, but it doesn’t even come close, you feel dirty listening to it; but in a good way.

All in all the album is a great purchase and should be owned by those who seek to know what is new and fresh in the rock world.

Now enjoy one of my favorite songs by them:

Rock on,

Sincerely,

– Ross
