THE BIRDS OF SATAN
The Birds Of Satan

(SHANABELLE/KOBALT)

Old school rock has been reinvigorated by The Birds Of Satan and their self-titled debut album. Originally forming as a cover band, The Birds Of Satan consists of none other than Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters fame as well as Wiley Hodgen and Mick Murphy. Taking their inspiration from the bands they covered such as Van Halen, Queen and Black Sabbath, this album is packed full of good old fashioned, solid rock tunes.

The opening track is a 9-minute epic homage to the rock gods of past and present. Other stand-out tracks include the Pieces Of The Puzzle, which has some classic Foo Fighter flavour and the Aerosmith-esque ballad Too Far Gone To See. If you are a Foo Fan, this one is for you.
