VOODOO HILL 'Wild Seed Of Mother Earth'
(Frontiers FRCD191) (2004)

Voodoo Hill’s second album built around the nucleus of guitarist Dario Mollo (The Cage) and vocalist Glenn Hughes (HTP/Deep Purple/Black Sabbath etc). For a big Glenn Hughes fan like myself Voodoo Hill shows the straight-ahead hard rock vocal delights of Mr Hughes. There is less funk and soul on display here than, say, his solo work - just good hard rock! Dario Mollo is no slouch in the guitar stakes either and lays down some blistering solos throughout.

It takes awhile to get used to some tracks notably ‘Dying To Love’ which I didn’t like at all on first hearing - Glenn Hughes does power metal! The vocals on ‘Soul Protector’ take a bizarre twist, as they sound very feminine - weird, but a damn fine rock tune nonetheless. Plus possibly the only lyric to link ‘crusader’ and ‘I am your alligator’!

The title track is the quietest moment on here having an almost trance like backing and a blissful melody throughout. ‘Can’t Stop Falling’ is just one of those big guitar riff tunes that never leaves your head, whilst ‘Nothing Stays The Same’ could easily come from a Hughes latter day solo album.

Good, straight ahead hard rock meets metal and sung by one of the vocal greats. A treat and an album that I suspect will stand the test of time.

** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
