Hellbound Glory - Review on The Hell Song

The music industry is at quite the crossroads, not just buy how we buy and listen to music but the genre bending and interests of the fans. Take for example Hellbound Glory, they just got a great review over on the The Hell Song. Rather amazing because if you scan down the reviews there is Drive By Truckers and Deicide, yes you saw it right. Glenn Benton and the satanic masses next to Hellbound Glory and Drive By Truckers, this is where change is coming. Fans are not seeking out music that is sold to them based on marketing demographics, shitty haircuts or celebrity driven entertainment shows. The Nashville pop retards must be shitting in their pants as they are realizing that true country music is coming from punks and metalheads. All we can say is that its about damn time as folks are waking up and realizing that real country has always been punk as hell. D.R.I, Metallica, Anthrax and many many more were part of the late 80's metal and hardcore crossover, now we are seeing it with country and punk and damn we love having been a part of both.

"Once again, the self-proclaimed scumbag country quartet from Reno NV delves into classic mid-70s style outlaw country music. Leroy and the boys fully incorporate the licks they've inhaled from listening to Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Flying Burrito Bros., Jerry Jeff Walker, and Willie Nelson records, but this time they've added depth and dimension to the songs by including banjo, fiddle, peddle steel and keyboards for a more traditional nod to the roots of country music. The 'throw caution to the wind' attitude is in full force though, with songs about excess drinking, drug use, suicidal thoughts, broken hearts and feelings of being beyond redemption, all the while managing to convey the humor inherent in these situations with a passionate full-throttle delivery. These are rowdy fun loving songs managing to mesh the best of the past into a contemporarycontext."
