Check out the new TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY album ‘Ruralizer’ here (MetalRecusants), in all its whiskey-drenched and southern rock-flavoured entirety. And there’s banjo. ‘Ruralizer’ was released approximately a month ago in Europe, and on March 16th, 2013 in North America on Agonia Records. TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY play a feisty stoner/southern rock with catchy guitar solos, bringing to mind LYNYRD SKYNYRD, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, PRIDE AND GLORY, DOWN and, of course, BLACK SABBATH. If you like what you hear, order the album here, from Agonia Records:
Have I mentioned TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY come from Piacenza, Italy? Vocalist and banjo player HM Outlaw and drummer Emilio Sobacchi started as a duo in 1999 (as “Leaf Season Death” or L.S.D.), grew bored, pursued other musical ventures for a while, got back together in 2006, started writing new material and convinced bassist Mike B. to join in shortly after. As TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY, they rehearsed in their barn near the Padus river, as well as wrote and recorded their first EP, aptly titled ‘Padus River Graveyard Blues’. After that, they took some time off. And Mike B. left. In 2011, HM Outlaw and Emilio Sobacchi recorded TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY's debut full-length ‘Ruralizer’. In 2012, Agonia Records took notice.
TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY (2013) features: HM Outlaw – vocals and banjo, Emilio “S.O.B.” Sobacchi – drums, Daniele Zoncheddu – guitars and Simone Feroci - bass
