DEATH ALLEY + DESERT STORM (UK) + ROADCREW
2016 gaat het jaar worden voor de Amsterdamse Death Alley! Energieke proto-punk als MC5 en Blue Oyster Cult wordt afgewisseld met heavy-hawkwind-psychedelia. De band bracht dit jaar het debuutalbum ‘Black Magick Boogieland’ uit. Natuurlijk komen ze niet alleen en worden ze bijgestaan door Roadcrew en de Engelse Desert Storm.
Biografie Death Alley
Fresh from the filthy sewers and dark basements of Amsterdam, Dutch destroyers Death Alley deliver heavy punked-out proto-metal in spades. The band, revolving around former The Devil’s Blood guitarist Oeds Beydals, mainline an unorthodox cross contamination of The MC5, Captain Beyond, Blue Öyster Cult, Motörhead and Black Sabbath, defining good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll played with metal finesse and a pitch black psychedelic soul cherry on top.
Having released their debut “Black Magick Boogieland” on TeePee in May 2015 to critical aclaim, denim and black-clad four-piece is gearing up to come trample your sticky-floored venues across Europe and beyond. Be forwarned.
