"The Devil Rhythm" (Ripple; 2011)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


Northern Ireland quartet Trucker Diablo nails the beer-guzzling, trucker cap-wearing, bare knuckle hard rock leanings of the rock music from the American South as heard on the band’s 12-track endeavor "The Devil Rhythm."

Oozing with sinewy riffs and monster hooks expected from the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Thin Lizzy, and Shinedown, this unit doles out a mountain of melody with loud guitars, thunderous rhythms, and arena-shaking choruses channeling everyone from AC/DC to Black Label Society to Hellyeah at the forefront of their no-frills rock ‘n roll explosion.

Perfect music to blast in the car with the top down along the highway, Trucker Diablo keeps the hard rock fires burning with keen songwriting and contagious choruses aplenty.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
