But for now, put on your boots, grab your helmet and ride you chopper to the raunchy pub where these guys are playing. It's going to be a party, I promise you. By the end of it you'll be completely drunk and broke but you'll know it was worth it.
The album opens with 'I'm a gambler', an excellent hard rock tune that somewhat reminds me of Guns 'n Roses.With that, One Last Shot sets the tone for the entire album. We're here to rock, that's for damn sure. In that aspect, 'One Night Stand' is an early highlight, one of my absolute favorites on this album. It's a groovy but heavy hard rock song, perhaps a bit punk induced. 'Embrace The Fire' takes on a more Southern rock approach, not bad, not at all.
I'm having a lot of fun with this album and I'm beginning to think that the French are exceptionally good at producing this otherwise typically American sound. One Last Shot can easily stand between their fellow countrymen like Flayed and Zoe. They're excellent musicians and they know a great deal about having fun. 'Thou Should Be Drunk', for example, is a well written song with great guitar solos and a tempo that will get many heads banging.
I'm not going into a song by song description for this album because I know you'll get the general idea by now. Rock 'n roll, influenced by thrash metal, punk and alcohol, that is exactly what you get on this album. If you love anything between the earlier mentioned Guns 'n Roses, Motorhead, Black Label Society and Volbeat, you don't want to miss out on this one. So check it out, bang your head, start that mosh pit and hope me in joining that these dudes cross the French borders soon.
