Louder StillFast rising Louder Still unveil their debut single/video “Speed Machine.

Formed in 2016 and inspired by 70’s rock, this new melodic hard rock band is taking the music industry by storm.  Hailing from Reading, England the foursome includes: Tom Rampton (vocals), George Twydell (guitar), Craig Carlaw (drums) and George “Ivesy” Ives (bass).   The band has John Mitchell handling the producing/engineering duties.

Shot in black and white, the video for “Speed Machine” is directed by photographer and filmmaker Jack Bridgland.  Written about a man’s love affair with his car and his passion for speed, the song starts with an up-tempo guitar riff accompanied by a great scream from Tom.  My ears heard a lot of Deep Purple, Whitesnake and Bad Company influence in the vocal phrasing and musical composition. The production is outstanding.  I love the crisp sounding drums, with a thumping bass line and memorable vocal melody.  Add to that a perfectly crafted melodic guitar solo and this song is an instant hit.

Talking about the recording process John Mitchell said, “We used real 40-year-old vintage Marshall amps for both guitar and bass to create the unique rawness and groove captured in the song”. “The drum parts were written to be choppy and hard hitting to create intensity, with drum fills added, giving the sound the impression of an engine starting”.

Having already notched up live performances at Rocklahoma, as well as supporting Lita Ford and L.A. Guns, this band is doing it old school by creating excitement before the full album release in Early 2018.

If bands like Louder Still are the future of British rock…. then USA watch out!!  I think we have another NWOBHM coming our way.

Decibel Geek readers and listeners, keep an eye out for more singles by Louder Still.  These guys rock!

Thanks for reading.  Pooni out!
