So Trucker Diablo are back in 2013 and kick off the year by releasing the first single off the forthcoming “Songs of Iron” album which is being released in May 2013.
The song is called The Rebel and it surely has those distinctive rebelious (pun intended) Trucker power riffs that we have all fell in love with over the past few years.
This track has the makings of a fantastic album. The guitar solo’s are amazing and reminds me of the Randy Rhodes solo in Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train. The chorus is yet another to get the crowd singing. This single is an all round crowd pleaser.
Trucker’s sound is very different from anything we have heard and that makes the band unique and why they shared the stage with Ginger Wildheart, Terrorvision, Foo Fighters, Thin Lizzy and had so many great gigs and festivals in 2012.
Trucker Diablo have now set the standard for up and coming bands for 2013 and listening to The Rebel, they have set the bar very high. If this song is anything to go by, Songs of Iron will be a number one album this year.
