Black Stone Cherry - Magic Mountain Cover

"BSC are at their best with a sledgehammer riff and ‘Magic Mountain’ is full of them."

Before it got clever, rock music was just big, and the heydey of heavy metal / blues crossovers has certainly always inspired Black Stone Cherry. The Kentucky quartet continue to bring a Southern swing to the table, but ‘Magic Mountain’ is as heavy as they’ve ever been – it’s almost like they know Corrosion Of Conformity have returned to their Mike Dean-fronted hardcore roots and have seen a gaping hole in the market. ‘Hollywood In Kentucky’ is the only foray into country, and that’s welcome – BSC are at their best with a sledgehammer riff and ‘Magic Mountain’ is full of them.
