This German band might be a dirty one considering what they call themselves, but there is not something in the press info stating that they are bad at keeping their hygiene in check. That information instead speaks of doom, sludge and bluesy heavy metal two of which are definitely not something you will find any larger quantity of in this album. An album that is the second one of this band called Dirt, a quintet who doesn’t quite mind borrowing from their inspirations.

Bluesy hardrock is what it is, with elements of classic bluesrock and southern rock and all of those things. Reviewers I read when looking up this album spoke of Zakk Wylde and Ozzy and why not, that seems like a decent way to describe them. They have managed a well produced album with modern sound yet still with that dirty feel of a smokey rock club in some basement somewhere in a smaller town somewhere in the world. They cannot really be considered unique stylistically as they borrow tried and tested riffing and melodies and they do not really put that much of their own spin at it as well.

But despite it being a bit of a déjà vu I would say that this album is very good and an entertaining album as well. The songs are all good, sure the vocalist is quite ordinary but for this it still works rather well. They have a good energy and some catchy and powerful choruses to brag about and they do what they do well but it still feels as though I have heard everything here before and that begs me to question what was their goal with this album and the only thing I can think of is that they try to avoid making a poor album and with that they succeed.

All the songs on the album are good but I do think the title track stands out a bit and is a good and entertaining song, the album in full is entertaining as well but at the same time this feeling of déjà vu is slightly bothering and prevents the album from being as good as one might imagine it should have been. Still i like to listen to this album and if you like that kind of music you will most likely like this album as well because it is a well made album and the riffs has worked before and they work as well now but with the difference that they do not feel fresh and exciting as they did when they first was written by some other band. Sill a decent album and well worth looking into for anyone into that kind of music.
