When it comes to classic rock, there’s no chance of beating out the greats, such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and The Who. But is it possible to come close to their sounds over 40 years later? Absolutely. On Rival Sons‘ debut album, “Pressure and Time,” they did just that.
The music on “Pressure and Time” is reminiscent of the legendary musicians listed above, with a few modern tweaks. Even though the music is similar, Rival Sons don’t completely rip off any tracks from 60s and 70s blues rock bands either. But, this revisited sound isn’t even the most impressive part of “Pressure and Time.”
According to Earache Records, Rival Sons “wrote, recorded and mixed the new album in just 20 days.” I’m sorry, did I read that correctly? On a band’s first album, they had the ability and guts to make a legitimately good product in just 20 days? That’s really impressive in my opinion. If you’re interested in checking out “Pressure and Time,” it’s available for purchase on iTunes.
