THE DEVIL’S BLOOD: NEW ALBUM IN NOVEMBER

Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash tells a funny story about his first listens to Aerosmith’s Rocks album. That day, he’d planned some afternoon doobage/canoodling with a comely young lady only to have his attention devoured by that then-new and always awesome Aerosmith record. I imagine him on her bed, shushing her and batting away her caresses — all because Rocks was totally rocking his world for the first of a billion times. I get that. Horny hotties come and go; an instant connection to timeless music is bigger.

And the very same thing happened to me Saturday night! Just replace Slash with hunky me (mental image note: I play lefty), his sexy chick with this chatty mess from my neighborhood, and Aerosmith’s Rocks with The Time Of No Time Evermore by Dutch occult rockers The Devil’s Blood.

Man, that record is tits-awesome. The shit jams all day long, three guitars strong; it’s super-hooky, spooky, and satanic, like Ghost and Blue Oyster Cult with even better harmonies. So, yeah, I couldn’t tear myself away through four listens. Full bonerz!

I don’t get how the The Time was never recommended to me. While I bemoan that tragedy, you enjoy the news that The Devil’s Blood has slated their 70-minute second album, titled The Thousandfold Epicentre, for a November 11 release! Now, The Time landed in Europe back in 2009, but not until 2010 in America; it might be the same deal for Epicentre. No big deal. I’d buy the import. I love these guys. Shit, I’ll travel to Holland to extract the record from their asses if I must.
