Fresh from their powerful and endlessly impressive new album unSOUND, Loaded Gun makes for a stunning example of the kind of passion and weight that Black Income pour into their music.
Balancing the classic intensity of Soundgarden (and later, Audioslave), the music builds up and envelops listeners in an incredibly immersive and memorable way.
It’s been a while since a rock band has lined up all of the elements to such an effective degree. Everything is here – that classic, hard-hitting escapism has finally returned. Superb guitar work meets with incredibly appealing vocals that cut through the weight of the soundscape with relevant ease. Then you follow the journey along, and the visuals help add further impact, and before you know it – the entire album is playing on repeat for days at a time.
Black Income are insanely good at what they do. Rock has been hinting at making it’s return to the mainstream in recent years, but this release marks its official move from a hint to an absolute promise. Brilliant. I’m a fan. Can’t wait for a live show.
