Blood s thicker than Love
BLOOD OF THE SUN
he brand new album ‘Blood ’s thicker than Love’ writing process began around the beginning of 2018 with the exception of the track 'Keep the Lemmy's Coming'. That song was mostly put together by then but it went through some tweaking and fine tuning when guitar players Wyatt Burton and Alex Johnson joined the band. The songs for this record really got started once they joined as Henry Vasquez comments : « We got in the jam room and everything just clicked, it was pretty smooth sailing after that, minus the Texas heat !"
He continues : « We began tracking the album early July, we recorded at The Lair in Arlington, TX with our guitar player Alex Johnson handling the engineering. We took a straightforward approach, we just got in and laid down our tracks and tried to make a killer hard rock record our way. Alex did an excellent job, not to mention the usual superb mixing and mastering by Tony Reed (Mos Generator, Stone Axe)."
The new album ‘Blood ’s thicker than Love’ debut track particularly stands out for its title as band founder Henry Vasquez explains : ''Keep the Lemmy's Coming' was written right after Lemmy passed, the lyrics just came right away. Everyone was talking about how Jack and Coke's were going to be called Lemmy's and we thought that a was killer way to pay tribute to him. He's an absolute legend and a huge influence, especially on our guitar players Wyatt and Alex. Once they joined, they put their own spin on what was there and we came out with what we think is a great homage to the man, myth, and legend of Lemmy. The song is about living in the moment and going all out, there are times when its necessary to go off the deep end and this song is the soundtrack for a time like that, also a killer driving song!"
'Burning on the wings of Desire' was more influenced by Southern rock, driven by the initial influences of the band like Bloodrock, Cactus, Mountain, Deep Purple, et cetera. ‘Blood ’s thicker than Love’ is definitely still informed by those influences, but mixed with the crossover of hard rock into the new wave of british heavy metal namely Motorhead, Riot, early Judas Priest, and Thin Lizzy.
