Italy’s TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY has just released a new track entitled “Old Blood” exclusively at Rue Morgue magazine’s website. The song can be streamed at this location:
Ruralizer, the band’s southern rock-inspired doom metal album, will hit the shops on April 16th in North America. The release is out now in Europe.
The music of TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY is a classic blend of feisty stoner/southern rock and doom metal, with catchy guitar solos and old-school heavy metal parts that may remind of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Corrosion Of Conformity, Pride and Glory, Down, Black Sabbath, or even ZZ Top. Apart from hard rock instruments, the band uses also a banjo and Hammond organs.
The album will feature guest appearances by electric guitar virtuoso Mario Percudani (HungryHeart, Mitch Malloy), Hammond maestro Paolo “Apollo” Negri (Wicked Minds, Black Widow, Hasselvander) and Razor SK (Forgotten Tomb).
Joe Hasselvander (ex-Pentagream / The Hounds Of Hasselvander) commented on the release: “Absolutely cool! Good, old swamp-infested blues metal!”
Ruralizer will consist of 8 original songs and a cover of Mountain’s “Mississippi Queen” with a playing time of almost 50 minutes. The album will be made available on digipack CD and digital download. Ruralizer was recorded at Elfo Studios by Daniele Mandelli, who is also in charge of mix and mastering.
The band commented: “We’re very proud of how the album came out and we strongly believe it’s the perfect way to begin our legacy. People into heavy, ballsy southern-tinged Hard Rock should take note!”
