Forward review of Shot the Devil

Not too many Blues-rock bands would open a studio CD with an instrumental, no matter how raunchy and driving - but 'Fred #3' certainly merits those adjectives, and Gravel Road are no ordinary outfit. This Seattle based trio actually kill the devil on the title number, and not even Robert Johnson could claim that! Then there's another short instrumental, 'Hair Of The Dog', the title of which tips the listener to the fact this is the mutant offspring of Hound Dog Taylor, an influence on the raw, distorted, dirty and sometimes spooky guitar sound. The band's scratchy, mean, punky RL Burnside/Fred McDowell inspired sound is complemented on a few numbers by some forthright lyrics - no parental guidance warning, though there should be. The numbers are all originals, even the brooding, droning 'Taildragger', which is certainly not the Howlin’ Wolf song, and the CD closes with a successful remix - and I am no great fan of remixes. It is not all blood and thunder, though, as bandleader Steve Zillioux's solo acoustic interlude 'Sammy' bears witness. This is Blues without the blinkers, but definitely with attitude.
