All Hell - The Grave Alchemist (album review + tour dates)

All Hell
The Grave Alchemist
Prosthetic Records     
14 April 2017

I hadn't planned on listening to All Hell and doing a full review. It was just something to post. But, seven tracks in and I'm still here. I initially had written All Hell off as King Diamond Light. Something sinister and dark for the 2017 kiddies who need "safe spaces" and are "offended" by everything. The kiddies who wear black eyeliner and black clothes and honestly believe they are being goth or depressed or whatever; not realizing that we were doing this back in the 1980s.

Any who, I'm still listening to All Hell's The Grave Alchemist. It's catchy. It IS King Diamond Light. But it has this 1960s camp quality to it that is fun and engaging. The musicianship is solid, not stunning, not new, but solid. It's an homage to dark sinister rock and roll. There is a nice punk element to it. Some tracks have a worthy circle pit vibe. Some, I swear, no lie, are like **gasp** Motorhead worthy! The same blistering guitars! The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Seriously, it's an album that is insidious! It creeps up on you and you begin to totally love it.
