Wow! I discovered this band on BBC's iPlayer when I was watching a re-run of Biffy Clyro's set from T in the Park. Before they showed Biffy, they said they were going to show a few songs by a new band called Royal Blood, my thinking was - "Who? Come on just get biffy on!!" But I continued to watch as these two guys strolled on stage, one sat behind the drums, the other strapped on a bass guitar....then they ripped into Little Monster as my jaw literally hit the floor. How is he making a sound like that with a Bass? I was an instant fan and every song the played was equally as good and catchy good as the last.

I then told everyone who would listen how good this band were, the only downside was having to wait a few months until this album to come out. How do they sound? Well certainly not like a two piece and most certainly not like just drums and a bass guitar. I don't know how they do it but they sound incredible and it's not just studio trickery either as they sound as good live as they do on the album.

Being a two piece they will draw obvious comparisons with the White Stripes and although musically they sound miles apart, although Mike Kerr's vocals do actually have a tinge of Jack White, I especially noticed this on the track Blood Hands. The band also sound a shade similar to Queens of the Stone Age in their heavy, catchy riffs. Ultimately this band have the same ability as the likes of Nirvana - the ability to write incredibly catchy lyrics and riffs that you never get bored of. Only downside is the album is just 10 tracks long and comes in at about 30 minutes, but trust me it's well worth spending 30 minutes with Royal Blood.

Can't wait to see them at the Barrowlands next year!

Crikey! These two boys from Brighton make a big noise and no mistake.
Royal Blood, Mike Kerr (vocals and Bass) and Ben Thatcher (drums), have some
spectacular rock chemistry going on. From the moment that the explosive
opening number 'Out Of The Black' hits the back wall it's very hard to believe
that there are only two instruments at work here and the energy barely lets
up for a moment throughout these ten blistering tracks. The spirit of Led
Zeppelin would appear to be still alive and well in this fine ensemble's hands.
Mr Kerr has one helluva voice too; the third element which binds the whole
thing together and to top it all there are some really good tunes here as well.

Three listens in and it's hard to pick the winners. It's all good. Very good indeed.
'Come On Over', with its massive chugging riff, has enough power in its bones
to light up a city should the National Grid break down; 'Figure It Out', too,
thunders along on the back of a beat which makes your knees rattle and features
one of Mr Kerr's strongest vocal performances; 'Loose Change', coming in to
land at just over two and a half minutes, is a model of economy and deliciously
old-fashioned in the best possible great-band-in-a-garage kind-of way but
if I had to pick a favorite the the bluesy rip-roaring mid-paced final song
'Better Strangers' ticks all the boxes for a guaranteed Rock Royalty future.

This is terrific stuff. Play it loud. Very Loud!

Highly Recommended.

Well what do I say??? AWESOME, CATCHY, ADDICTIVE and many other adjectives, I could go on all day! I don't listen to the radio as it's generally full of pop crap, terrible vocals, talent less and down right boring so called bands, however I do have a radio alarm clock and I can tell you the 'OFF' button gets hit usually very quickly until one morning and this song was playing and as I lay there deciding whether to get up or have another 30 minutes I suddenly realised that the track playing was outstandingly excellent, so I didn't turn off the radio and instead carried on listening. I was in love, I had to find out who they were as I presume the DJ named them before the track played, which I didn't hear. The only lyric I could remember was 'lust on my tongue' and I had to get up there and then in case I forgot (I have memory issues due to ill health). Anyway as soon as I had turned my laptop on I googled the line that I remembered and up popped Royal Blood, I thought "Who are these people", they are a new band and absolutely AWESOME. I found the album here in Amazon and I played 'Little Monster' (which is where the lyric came from) and my other-half, who isn't into rock as madly as I am and even he said "Oh my god they are FAB". We then looked for them on YouTube and we found a video from one of the party in the park or whichever one it was and they sounded even BETTER than they did on the CD and to my amazement it was just two chaps in the band, I was trying to see towards the back of the stage to see if there were other band members hidden in the shadows but no, it was just these two incredibly talented lads and I was hook, line and sinkered. I had to tell all my rock loving friends about this fabulous band and everyone that listened agreed and were also amazed by them!Read more ›

How the music industry should be, a band gets itself noticed from local gigs, getting more and more airplay, building momentum until appearing at reading festival just before their album comes out. Have been waiting for this album for ages and it doesn't disappoint. Really don't understand all the claims about sounding too much like led Zeppelin, there are lots of influences to be heard through the album just like any other band but they have their sound. True rock fans should feel pleased that there is still a place for good bands to come through in the 'proper' way. Only criticism is its a bit short but what a debut and can't wait to hear where they go in the future
