The Devil And The Almighty Blues
II

  • Tidløs Moskus-rock (5/6 Klassekampen)
  • Eksplosiv bluesrock med stonervibber hengende i taket som Serrano-skinkene på en spansk tapasbar (Scream Magasine)
  • Albumet består utelukkende av nydelige låter og bare må høres (7,5/10 Metal Hammer)
  • Man kan si at det er ganske dristig å kalle bandet sitt for The Devil And The Almighty Blues, men med dette albumet viser de at de har all rett på navnet (8/10 Musikknyheter)
  • Jeg har hørt ubegripelig mye kul norsk rock det siste året, men det som har skjedd med meg 15-20 ganger på rappen når jeg har hørt «Low» er nytt for meg. Hver jævla gang låten har vart i 4:09 reiser hårene seg på armene, og jeg lager gitarlyder med kjeften som en skrulling. (The Wilhelmsens)


This is the long awaited follow-up to The Devil And The Almighty Blues’ highly acclaimed self-titled debut album, and these guys have not gone astray! The album “II” gives a peep through the pinhole at a band’s honest, dark and pure expression, drawing influences from the original delta blues via the electrical revolution in the late sixties/ early seventies, to the more contemporary desert scene.

Formed in the rock’n’roll underground of Oslo, Norway in 2010, The Devil And The Almighty Blues have captured the attention of blues and rock enthusiasts from all corners of the globe. And with good reason: Filled with a profound love for the old heroes of the blues, for rock, metal and punk, they bring something extraordinary to the scene. In cooperation with Blues For The Red Sun, a label based in arctic Norway, DATAB are ready to unleash their second album on the world – at last!

Armed with vintage Gibson guitars and tube amplifiers, they recorded “II” live in Ocean Sound Recording Studio on the edge of the North Sea. This was to preserve the natural and musical energy, the desperation and dark joy we know and love from their live shows.

DATAB represent a new take on blues-based rock; heavy without becoming metal, dark without being doom, bluesy without being straight up and boring. The album has turned out melodic, raw and unbelievably heavy. This is far from being a possible hit on the radio, but who cares?
