Black Knots- Hellbent To Kick It Out CD. Riff after riff, song after song the Black Knots do what so many bands have failed miserably at attempting: rockin’ the fuck out. Raised on a steady diet of AC/DC, the Stooges, Radio Birdman, Thin Lizzy and Motorhead, the Black Knots hit hard. On their debut album 'Hellbent To Kick It Out' they're a high energy mix of chainsaw riffs and killer leads built around a brooding, thunderous rhythm section. These guys are in the same league as long standing riff demons like Zeke, Nashville Pussy, the Hip Priests and the Hellacopters. Recommended.
