Review: Charm City Devils – Let’s Rock-N-Roll [2009]

Amazon Charm City DevilsNewcomers to the neo-classic hard rock stage, Charm City Devils, offer this 11-track debut on Nikki Sixx’s Eleven Seven Music label. The Baltimore outfit summons the energy of early AC/DC (“Let’s Rock N Roll (Endless Road)”), Billy Squire’ s “The Stroke” with a squirt of Zeppelin (“True Love”), and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing” with a blast of Aerosmith (“Best of the Worst”), all in a beastly manner. Much of the songs on Let’s Rock-N-Roll feature the undying and decadent 80’s themes of fame, money, rock n roll, chicks, and heartbreak. Vocalist John Allen lays down anthemic lines throughout the album (“Can I get a hell yeah, hell yeah”), while possessing the range and style of a young Chris Robinson. Overall, Let’s Rock-N-Roll is an addictive rock assault in the likes of The Last Vegas’s Whatever Gets You Off, The Answer’s Demon Eyes, and Buckcherry’s Black Butterfly with a wholesome serving of infectious riffs and obnoxious hooks that you will play over and over again. Look for the Charm City Devils on this summer’s Crüe Fest 2 tour -Meds
