The Blackout (UK)
The Blackout (UK) The Blackout are six metallic troubadours from Merthyr Tydfil in Wales. They cruised onto the rock community’s radar a year ago with the fearsome statement of intent that was the cunningly titled six-track fierce panda mini-album ‘The Blackout! The Blackout! The Blackout!’ and by the time they started working on ‘We Are The Dynamite!’ they had already shared stages with their fellow newcomer peers of 2006, Gallows and Enter Shikari. 'We Are The Dynamite!' is an enviably tight collection of rock monster melodic meltdowns, blasted by serious metal riffage and bursting at the screams with exuberant hooks. It features nine brand new songs, two reworkings of tracks from ‘The Blackout! The Blackout! The Blackout!’ (namely ‘Murder In The Make-Believe Ballroom’ and ‘It’s High Tide Baby!’) and quite literally eleven potential singles. ‘We Are The Dynamite!’ is explosive stuff indeed and was released on cd and download on the 1st of Oct.
