Album review: THE BLOODY NERVE – All Blood, No Treasure (Act 1)

THE BLOODY NERVE – All Blood, No Treasure

Facebook [Release date 27.08.21]

The Bloody Nerve brings together singer/guitarist Stacey Blood and vocalist Laurie Ann Layne – “rock ‘n’ roll guardians of the West” in their own words. A brave claim perhaps but they certainly do things differently and their own way, as this three song EP is the first part of four, as the Bloody Nerve plan to release an album’s worth of songs a different way.

Laurie Ann Layne fair takes the paint off your walls on the opening of ‘A Million Arms’. What a massively enjoyable slab of modern rock it is. ‘What’s It Say? (About You)’ sees Stacey Blood joining in on vocals, for another solid tune. ‘Roads’ is like the White Stripes on steroids! They mix 70s rock riffs with an infectious chorus. The Bloody Nerve are on a roll and just like that the EP is finished, definitely leaving the listener wanting to hear more from them. Hurry up please!

This could get quite addictive you know and full marks to them for trying something a bit different. ****
