There is definitely something good in the water in Sweden as not only do they produce a stream of top notch melodic rock and 70′s influenced acts, they have been producing some top draw modern rock bands like Deville. Deville are onto this their third album and its safe to say if you enjoy the vocals of Dave Grohl and the riffs of Queens of the Stone Age you will adore this album.
Between them the two guitarists, Andreas Bengsston (who also sings) and Martin Hambitzer, produce wave after wave of fine riffs. Add in the restrained but heavy drumming from Markus Nilsson and pounding bass of Markus Akesson and you know the album is going to be one for repeated spins. The opening trio of ‘Lava’, ‘Iron Fed’ (a Sabbath song title if ever there was one!) and ‘In Vain’ are worth getting the CD for on their own merit. Great choruses, grooving backing and the in your face vocals of Andreas Bengsston. They stretch their wings a little on the instrumental ‘Battles Will Be Won’ and ‘Blood Crown’ could be hit as it has the most instant chorus on the album.
Live I would imagine Deville are simply stunning and they aren’t too shabby on CD either…
