Molly Hatchet-Battleground

The Southern Rock legends are back with a new live album, and what a treat it is.

“Bounty Hunter,” starts things off, a nice rocker that is all in and without hesitation. “Whiskey Man,” takes it through and then burns with swagger and grace. What a song, and what a band. “Why Won’t You Take Me Home,” is a big bluesy number, demanding attention that really gets things going. “Son Of The South,” gets it going and then brings things down with the bluesy one two step. “American Pride,” is a thundering beast of a song. “Edge of Sundown,” harmonises perfectly. “Fall Of The Peacemakers,” goes down the epic route with the southern mentality adding in depth and pace. “Devil’s Canyon,” roars through the tone of the world, and takes it through it all. “One Man’s Pleasure,” rocks out and dangles through the loops for the world to hear. “The Creeper,” works its way through and about, slowly moving the turn and screwing things onward bound. “In The Darkness of the Night,” is simply epic.

“Justice,” is a heavy song. One that veers from side to side. Bringing the elements of the epicness with it. “As Heaven Is Forever,” goes big on the ballad route, and delivers fantastically. “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die,” rocks the thunderous world to bits and still leaves the listener wanting more. “Beatin The Odds,” is a rocker of the good old fashioned world. It takes and takes, and then smashes the door down. “Junkin’ City,” goes for the rockier outcrops. “Dreams I’ll Never See,” brings the big ol’ feel of the anthem to light. The guitars twist and turn and the vocals are on point throughout. “The Journey,” goes big and shimmers through the unwieldy filters of the world. “Flirtin’ With Disaster,” finishes off strong and proud.

The album is out on 29th November via Steamhammer/SPV.
