Airbourne – ‘Boneshaker’ – Album Review

Airbourne released their 5th album, ‘Boneshaker’, on October 25, 2019 and they delivered an album that is a fist to the face, elbow to the gut, knee to the balls rock & roll album in the vein of AC/DC that will have you cranking the volume as high as it will go so you can hear every distorted guitar note, head-pounding drum beat, wall vibrating bass notes and Joel O’Keefe’s Bon Scott/Brian Johnson style vocals and lyrics that scream Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll and also give you the longest run-on sentence I could possibly come up with while writing this review for you, my favorite people in the blogging world.

There is no need going through every song, one by one, because Airbourne only know how to deliver one style of song and that style is loud and guitar heavy rock & roll.  As the sticker on the front of the album states…

…and they are not lying.  This next line might sound bad, but it is true and is actually what I love about the band.  If you’ve heard one ‘Airbourne’ album you have heard them all.  They are unapologetically bringing heavy-ass Aussie rock to the world and that is actually what I love about them.

The songs titles, well, they are exactly what you would expect.  Mentioning Rock & Roll, drinking, sex, hell and every other cliche in the book.  It is awesome!!

Airbourne – Diamond Cuts Box Set – Album Review

This Australian heavy metal band is a full on rock band that is loud, obnoxious and freaking awesome.  If you like AC/DC, well here is the second coming of the band.  Where Greta Van Fleet get blasted for sounding like Zeppelin, no one seems to care that these guys sound like AC/DC.  Hell, they are doing AC/DC better than AC/DC right now.

If you don’t know about the band, know that Lemmy (Motorhead) was a huge fan of the band and even showed up in one of their music videos from their debut album.  That was enough for me to give this band a try and and I am so glad I did.  After Lemmy’s passing, the band paid tribute to Lemmy in their song “It’s All For Rock & Roll” and even had the airplane lighting rig Motorhead used on tour in the video.  It was pretty cool to see.

After the band’s fourth album, ‘Breakin’ Outta Hell’, they decided to put together a collection of B-Sides together for an album and released it as a Box Set that included their first 3 albums.  I received the Vinyl Edition as a Christmas gift from my girls and to top if off, the bought “Breakin’ Outta Hell’ on vinyl as well.  My Airbourne Vinyl collection was complete.
