SKELETON DIXIE by Scattered Hamlet
(Hell Rider Recordings)

Scattered Hamlet are the epitome of high octane rock and roll. Attitude, power and a swagger that is down right bad ass! The band's latest release, 'Skeleton Dixie', goes for the throat as soon as you press play!  The best way to describe this record is what may happen if science could mutate the genes of AC/DC, Motorhead, Molly Hatchet, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Steve Jones all into one new being, then add a shot of Nashville Pussy for good measure. The band is powered by 
Adam Joad - Vocals, Harmonica, Guitar, Adam Newell - Lead Guitar, Vocals , Richard Erwin - Bass, Vocals, Jake Delling Le Bas - Drums and Johnny T. Crash - Vocals, Whiskey, Shotgun. The band kicks things off with the frantic riffing of "Shelter" this relatively fast and catchy approach is continued through the opening few tracks, highlighted by the gut busting, "Outlaw Anthem". Other examples of this adrenaline pumped high octane band can be felt on the aggressive fist-pumping, "It's Alright With Me" and a killer take on the Mountain classic, "Mississippi Queen" as well as "Falling Off The Wagon" featuring Randy "The Arsonist" Cooper from Emperors and Elephants on guitar dishes out some thundering riffs. Closing the album in rocking fashion is the whiskey soaked rocking title track. Scattered Hamlet sound is definitely influenced by its southern flavor, especially evident in Adam Joad' s powerful vocals. This is mixed with heavy guitar tones to create a truly unique and bad ass sound.  Scattered Hamlet flat out kicks the lower lumabr extremity with reckless abandon. Overall, 'Skeleton Dixie' does what Scattered Hamlet does best, kick maximum a**! Crank it up and give thanks to the rock n' roll gods that this band exists. - Highly Recommended
