Review: Blacklist Union – Breakin' Bread With The Devil [2008]

amazon-blacklist-unionPresenting a holdover sound straight from the danger-laden late-era Sunset Strip days with some modern day tweaking, Los Angeles outfit Blacklist Union portray the grit and recklessness associated with the excesses of rock ‘n roll with conviction on BREAKIN’ BREAD WITH THE DEVIL. This 10-track salvo to the bottomless glass contains the proper mixture of kick you in the head lyrics and simple yet effective riffs (“King of Fools”) and isn’t afraid to bare its soul to ease the pain from loss (“Sixty Five Steps Away”). Bridging the gap between Papa Roach and Motley Crue, Blacklist Union is far from unique yet definitively demonstrate the byproduct of the Hollywood rock machine revved at all cylinders. www.blacklistunion.comMike SOS
