Lynyrd Skynyrd – Still Unbroken
(God & Guns)
Yeah! The guys still got it. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s new track “Still Unbroken” is dripping with the southern charisma that makes the Skynyrd the Skynyrd! Johnny Van Zant’s vocally sounds brilliant and that solo, oh that solo! The new album God & Guns is out on the 29th, things are looking immense!
Alice In Chains – A Looking In View
(Black Gives Way To Blue)
The song has actually been out for nearly 2 weeks and I’m only getting around to writing about it now; apologies for that. I love AIC, but I was one of those sceptical twats who didn’t really give William DuVall a 100% fair chance. Now, here is the first time we’re hearing him on new material. “A Looking In View” is a scorcher! The great thudding at the start sets the tone and it exudes some doom-y influences. DuVall and the rest of AIC have channelled the spirit of Layne Staley in this track’s (and album’s) creation, and not done so in a forced manner. Bring on the album!
