ALBUM REVIEW BY TONY SISON, THE DEDICATED ROCKER SOCIETY, L.A.


CD REVIEW: LOCK & LOAD by Rebel Road (Independent Release) Swedish based rockers, Rebel Road debut outing, ‘Lock & Load’ is raw and the riffs will grab you, give you a good shaking and don’t let go, and nor would you want them to! The band is comprised of, Ulrich Seppenen on guitar and lead vocals, Stefan Karlson on guitar, Niklas Larsson on guitar, organ and vocals, Markus Johansson on bass and Henrik Gajewska on drums. Rebel Road serve up rock music you want to roll down your windows in your car and turn up full blast so everyone can hear it. They are a full-throttle modern rock band, with guitars that rage and a shuddering rhythmic attack. They sound as earthy and raw as Molly Hatchet as heavy and fun as Black Label Society. The southern influences are obvious and the music is engaging and all consuming. Not one track on the album disappoints as so many other albums do. The songs that grabbed my initial attention were, “Six Ways To Sunday”, “We Come Alive”, ” Apt 17″ and “Rollin'”, but overall the whole album rocks in many different ways. All in all, ‘ Lock & Load’ is a rock solid listen throughout and you never get bored during the album, you always think, one more song before you change it over and by the end of it, you’ve gone through the whole thing and loving it. This music is for people who like the sound of an engine roaring or the feeling obtained by following a cold beer with a shot of good whisky. Rebel Road will gladly kick your ass, and then wait for you to say thank you.- Highly Recommended. ┬áTony @ The Dedicated Rocker Society.
