Mini-Review: Devil Riding Shotgun-"Self-Titled"
by Zac Boda
“Three guys living in Portland, having a good time.” This combined with the killer album artwork are great ways to be introduced to a band. Devil Riding Shotgun is bass heavy doom groove to my ears. It took about three or four listens until I truly appreciated what DRS were conveying. The only complaint I have is the album is gone in a blink of an eye.
First thing I must point out, if you have a nice sound system with a good subwoofer, you must turn the bass up and crank the volume to “11”! This album has some killer bass lines and I believe the entire doom scene will enjoy DRS self titled effort. This next point just may be my opinion, but the lead vocals are scarily reminiscent of Mr. Danzig. I really feel this compliments the sound and I love what you guys are doing. Well done Neb, Brian, and Brad.
Each track flows so very well together, one loses track of the separate songs and simply hears the album as one entire groovy doom work of art. One track that stands out to me would be "Who Am I?" This is another one all the readers here at Heavy Planet must check out. I hope you all enjoy as much as I have!
