Review Summary: All Hell Breaks Loose isn't fantastic but it is credible, in spite of the fact that sometimes sounds a bit generic here and there, it's a good piece of music if you're a fan of hard rock.
It's the debut album of the new group Black Star Riders
(formerly known as Thin Lizzy). With this album entitled All Hell Breaks Loose
, the group wants to pay homage to the amazing legacy of Phil Lynott but also to show off the band's new musical direction.
Although not being a spectacular album, it's a credible hard rock output after so many years without releasing a record. The typical sound of the classic Thin Lizzy
can be listened in the track "Bound for Glory" with a very similar instrumental composition when compared to the classics. However, most of the album is an exhibition of the band's new musical direction with tracks such as "Kingdom of the Lost" with folk rock elements, "All Hell Breaks Loose" or "Blues Ain't So Bad". Although it's a good album, it sounds a bit generic in certain tracks like "Bloodshot", "Kissin' the Ground" or "Hoodoo Voodoo". The album production is really good and the group coexists very efficiently explaining why the group has been together for so many years.
