Black Bottle Riot – Stay Hungry
Self released – 2009
On their second EP Stay Hungry the listener gets to hear that the Dutch foursome from Nijmegen possesses the pure rock blood type. Like hungry dogs they throws themselves upon the music that was once played by groups like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Thin Lizzy, The Ramones and The Black Crowes. Spread out over three songs we are treated to a thick base of drums and steady bass; creating enough room for groovy guitars with ripping solo’s and neat following melodies. In short; pure rock ’n roll with a very small dash of stoner; and leans mostly on the southern rock and blues sounds of yesteryear. None too surprising; but always righteously anchored in the pure rock clay. Very curious about a full album!
