Himalayan’ – Band of Skulls third long player – is an album indebted to years of polishing, perfecting and whittling their skills into a core that packs an immediate and inimitable punch.

Format: Audio CD
Downloaded this album very cheaply from I Tunes. There is a real buzz about this power trio from Southampton and it's easy to see why. The album is not particularly challenging or original but is a perfect soundtrack to the summer and should happily rock from car stereos across the land. Indeed its great to see a UK band exploring territory which almost has a US copyright and succeeding in making it their own. I had previously heard the single "I don't know what I am" and actually thought it was the White Stripes albeit at their most commercial. Indeed White Stripes references abound on the first three tracks which is not a bad thing if the songs are as good as these (although I not certain about the record title).

Band of Skulls play with such confidence and verve that it's hard not to believe that they been around for years. "Death by Diamond and Pearls" does indeed evoke the squiggly purple one (Prince) with a very raunchy guitar riff before it heads off into Black Keys territory. "Blood" is swamp blues beautifully sung by Emma Richardson whose voice resonates very much like the great P J Harvey. Richardson shares vocal duties with lead guitarist Russell Mardsen. "Fires" is sung by both and is a great rock song.

I actually like the songs on this album most which detour from the more conventional rock format. Cold Fame is one of these and the album highlight. A very slow almost Radiohead like lament and is probably incredible live. Similarly the folksy and acoustic "Honest" sung beautifully by Richardson again steers into territory where perhaps the Band of Skulls will spend more time in the future.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kevin Robertson on 24 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
A friend recommended this album after seeing a review of it in the paper, and on first listen I was instantly hooked, so I immediatly bought it. I had never heard of them before, and THEN suddenly I'd found a new favourite band! Every song is strong and catchy, yet heavy in a controlled, melodic sense, but never "metal", by no means, oh no. With a couple of soft numbers, this album definetly has its dynamics. The guitars sound amazing, and enough spring reverb to shake a stick at! The drums sound really full and organic, and the basslines are as catchy as the guitar riffs. Vocals is where band of skulls really shine I think. There is a male and female vocalist, and when both are harmonising, it works incredibly well, both really great singers, and some ace lyrics to boot.
So go ahead and buy this album if your wanting something differant, and I'm sure people of most rock/popular styles will appereciate and find something to love in this album! Cant wait to see these guys live.

Heard 'Death by Diamonds and Pearls' on the radio, thought it sounded like the White Stripes and was astonished to hear the DJ say it was Band of Skulls (who are they I wondered and are they heavy metal? - don't mind if they are even, cos I love that stuff too). Next thought was I have to get this and find out more because the sound coming out of this band is different AND you know, this CD is a fantastic mix of stuff - heavy, folksy, lots of shouting, lots of drums, clapping, super guitar riffs, great lyrics and oh yes, Emma Richardson's voice is just so nice (listen to the Honest track - just divine). I have a bit of a crush. This band shows so much promise and can go so far. I'm going to be following them closely from now on.

This particular band are picking up speed with every step at the moment. It seems the more you hear, the more gigs you appear at, the better they sound and the more attention they seem to soak up. Take Reading Festival 2010 for example. I made the mistake of thinking they were a little bit underground and unknown for many people to be there and so made my way over to the NME tent just in time for their set to begin. But I was shocked by the amount of people present, singing with their hands in the air and rocking out everywhere.

How to describe them escapes me...think Von Bondies, Kings of Leon and White Stripes in a blender. From the very beginning of the album they grab you by the sweat-drenched t-shirt and make you scream the lyrics. "Light of the Morning" is certainly not the strongest song of the album, but is by no means the kind of track that makes you jump for the skip button. "Death by Diamonds and Pearls" is where you really hear their talent. The fantastic muddy sound of the guitar and bass, along with the slow, crashing drums and the male/female mix of vocals.

They then take a more downbeat, minimalist approach with the amazing "I Know What I Am", "Fires" and "Honest". Of the three, it's the former that really makes you stomp your feet and then forces a smile onto your face with a genuinely dirty, crispy solo.

"Patterns", "Hollywood Bowl" and "Bomb" turn a dark corner, bringing out the heavy weight subject matter, before their Kings of Leon influence rears it's unmistakeable head in "Impossible" and "Blood".

After this, you should be feeling tired and the final two tracks of the album bring the pace down to a crawl. "Dull Gold Heart" and "Cold Fame" are sleeper tracks and give the impression that the band has just roared through a whole set of tracks and has saved the chilled material for the end. Lighters in the air please!
