I came across BlitZ a few months ago when I was asked to review their latest album, Welcome To The Rock Show. I was so impressed; I made the effort to catch them live & now our paths cross on a regular basis.
As soon as Kev Simpson’s guitar riff begins, I am immediately transported back to my early days, the days of KISS, Boston and Journey. This is Blitz’s signature sound, signalling more than a passing nod to the days of poodle perms and glam.
Simpson, Stuart Corden (bass and lead vocals) and Mat Davies (drums and vocals) make the perfect classic rock trio, creating an incredible full, polished sound for a band with so few in number. Their songs are all originals and, like Waiting For A Miracle, you feel as though you should be singing along with the chorus as soon as you hear it, even though it’s only your first time through! BlitZ have a musical formula which works for them!
Waiting For A Miracle has a great hook, wicked guitar breaks and Bon Jovi-style harmonies. What’s not to love if you’re a classic rocker!
The single drops this weekend, 7th June, premiering the video from their FB page at 7pm. Most definitely worth scheduling for wherever you may be.
