Band You Should Know : Hard Driving Blues Power Trio Devils Creek

Inspired by the classic guitar driven blues rock of the late 60's and 70's, UK power trio Devils Creek seem intent on keeping alive the time honored tradition first forged by greats such as Rory Gallagher, Alvin Lee and Ten Years After and Status Quo years ago.

Formed in 2006, led by guitarist/vocalist Guy Rosewall, featuring a crack rhythm section in bassist Tim Chapple and drummer Alan Ibbotson, their 2008 debut album 'Bullfrog Blues' combined a classic approach with an attack favored by heavy rock, particularly evident in the ultra heavy bass sound not normally heard in the genre.

Featuring a hard driving electric version of Rory Gallagher's "Seven Days" which would surely make the late great Irish guitarist proud, the entire offering is a solid testament to the enduring power and influence of blues inflected rock - especially the variety in which a wailing Fender Strat comes front and center.

Now in the middle of sessions for their second studio album, several tracks being already available for preview on the band's MySpace page it's quite clear based on the fresh evidence on display that these three aren't likely to stray from their vision any time in the foreseeable future.
