Bourbon Flame - s/t

What kind of sound do you get when you mix Brian Johnson, Lemmy and Blackie Lawless? You get a drunk, wavering, gravel pit larynx like that of BOURBON FLAME singer Janto. In the annals of Rock music his voice will not rival that of Ronnie James Dio or Paul Rodgers.


However if you are looking for some dirty, high energy Rock N Roll straight from the cod piece of the 1980s then BOURBON FLAME will possibly re-ignite the passion for all things Jack Daniels, men in stilettos and leather trousers.


To be honest if you are a fan of WASP, GUNS N ROSES, HANOI ROCKS, AC/DC, even MOTORHEAD, you will be well in with these guys. And given that the band members are better known for plying their trades in Extreme Metal bands itís open to debate on the seriousness of the whole project. But they seem to be having fun and  at the end of the day this debut is a bit of a unpolished diamond.
