Roadsaw - See You in Hell
Label: Small Stone Records
Format: CD


Appealing stoner rock on comeback album from Boston-based hard rock outfit, Roadsaw

The hairy men of Roadsaw made a good name for themselves with albums like ‘Nationwide’ and the appropriately titled ‘Rawk’n’Roll’ before splitting so members could embark on similar projects like the Southern Rock combo Antler and hard rockers Quitter. Core Roadsaw members Craig Riggs, guitarist Ian Ross and bassist Tim Catz have apparently decided there’s no good reason not to dust off the old name and it take it out on the road again, and so have done so with Milligram shredder Darryl Shepard and Jeremy Hemond, late of Boston rockers Sin City Chainsaw and Cortez, on drums. Thus, ‘See You In Hell’ continues in a straight line from Antler’s ‘Nothing That A Bullet Couldn’t Cure’ – and there’s nothing wrong with that if you like thundering fuzz riffs and galloping rhythm sections fronted by a tuneful howler. The band does a good job of giving the songs an individual twist - ‘Go It Alone’ takes a more melodic turn and sports some sensitive lyrics. The stomping lurch of the title track comes garnished with a few organ flourishes and slows it down for some soulful crooning from Riggs. ‘Dead Horse’ trots further afield with spacey leads floating around a strummed acoustic guitar. ‘Leavin’ features some heavily distorted slide. If you’ve followed Roadsaw and Antler this far, there’s every reason to pick up ‘See You In Hell’, and stoner rock aficionados who have skipped over the band before now should have no qualms about jumping aboard.
