The Danish trio »The Ramblin Bandits«, which was founded in the beginning of 2016, quickly gained a fan base in Denmark and Germany with its sound.
No wonder who has experienced them live knows why. Full of power, energy and unique, memorable sound, they quickly bring the room to the boil and no one can sit still on his chair. Wild Garage Rockabilly, Motorbilly with a touch of dirty blues and 60s sound. - these are »The Ramblin Bandits«.
My expectations for her first album, which appeared shortly before, were correspondingly high. The album "On A Hill" comes with 13 songs, which are all self-compositions. 13 songs that show the diversity of the "Ramblin Bandits" and yet close to the energy of their live performances.
Hammersons like "Bahama Mamma", "Ghetto Blash", "Painkiller" or "On A Hill" hit my nerves. Rocky guitar with hot riffs, in combination with the bass, drums and the voice of the bassist and singer Lasse Eriksen give a gritty, memorable sound and simply pull along. In my opinion, a title is not quite successful, or does not fit into the album correctly: »Wasted Time«. It seems to me a little out of place, with this otherwise very first-rate very rocking album.
What is not to be seen negatively, it is good, but from my point of view it simply does not fit into the concept of this album. But this song is only a little bit of my very positive impression, especially since it is also taste.
Conclusion. "On A Hill" is a grandiose and rocky debut album of the "Ramblin Bandits", which is fun, pulling and hope for some more albums of the trio!
