Highway – United States Of Rock 'N' Roll
(Demon Doll Records / Season Of Mist – 2011)
A set of rockers from Montpellier, France who rev it up on this killer album that came out a few moons ago.
Highway consist of four cool french dudes who Benjamin Folch (Vocals); Ben Chambert (Guitars); Romain Chambert (Drums) & Sam Marshall (Bass). From the 1st note with the assertive blaster 'Become Someone' that's followed up with the old school crackly effect mono blues starting 'I Like It' and later the bluesy ballad 'Freedom'.
There is also the amazing acoustic 'Highway O' Love' and the AC/DC Johnson-era guitar sounding 'On My Knees' to get excited over. Complete proof that France has some killer bands on offer in the way of Rock!
