CD Review: Black Stone Cherry Climb The "Magic Mountain" To Success

From the American Midwest comes the new album from hard rockers Black Stone Cherry entitled "Magic Moutain." It was released on May 6th through Roadrunner Records and is the band's highest charting album in the U.S. After headlining the Download Festival last year, the band entered the studio with that energy to create one of their hardest rocking albums to date.

The thirteen-song release begins with Black Stone Cherry coming right into your face with the aggressive sound of "Holding On...To Letting Go." They lock into that classic metal groove with "Peace Pipe," before just exploding with the heaviness of "Me And Mary Jane." Black Stone Cherry show their unity with the southern hard rock appeal of "Magic Mountain" and "Blow My Mind." They show us a countrified side to their music with the acoustic ballad "Sometimes," before getting down and dirty with the energy blast of "Fiesta del Fuego." The album finishes with the mainstream metal of "Remember Me," a six-minute closer allows the band to just jam.

Black Stone Cherry have live dates running through to November, including stops in Europe. For a complete list of shows and to find out more about the new album, please visit blackstonecherry.com.
