Description

Black Candy is the thunderous second album from Australian heavy rock band, Snake Bite Whisky. The album was recorded at Lush Studio’s in Redcliffe, Queensland, Australia which has also seen artists such as Jason Bonham, Jimmy Barnes, Jeff Martin and The Red Paintings to name a few. Produced and mixed by Bernie Wedrat, Black Candy features ten tracks of uncompromising heavy sleaze rock with elements of punk, outlaw country and heavy metal. This is their follow up to their acclaimed debut album, This Side Of Hell, and displays an even wider range of musical influence coupled with their trademark uncompromising, non politically correct rock N’ roll.

Black Candy is also the first recording featuring the talents of new members Danny Sharkz on drums and Laggy on Guitars, who joined after the previous drummer and guitarist unceremoniously quit on the eve of the 2019 U.K tour. Together with original members, vocalist/lyricist Jay R and bass guitarist, Stacii Blake they have crafted ten tracks born out of the filthy underbelly of heavy rock.

The band has gained a reputation for not caring for trends and doing whatever they want musically regardless of consequence on their debut album and they continue that trend on Black Candy. From the high octane Southern metal influenced opener, Thunderbird to the pulsating sleaze of Choke to the Iggy Pop-esque ode to partying, Hammered, the album never lets up on it’s intensity.Nnot even on Bones In The Fire, a heavy metal soaked, outlaw country dirge. Explosive lead guitar work from Laggy peppers the album with his trademark screaming solo’s and huge, catchy riffs adding to the signature Snake Bite Whisky sound. Stacii Blake once again brings his dirty bass riffs, notably on Creep Show (an anthem for the outcasts of society), with murderous intent on the driving rhythm of Reload, Aim And Kill and with lots of fuzz and groove on the aforementioned, Hammered. Danny Sharkz brings a massive drum sound to the mix with tight rhythms and thunderous fills highlighted in tracks such as Raised In Hell, Sweet Cocaine and Dead By Dawn. Jay R once again draws from life experiences to paint a lyrical picture of the band’s debauched life. Everything from sex, revenge, drinking and hard living are covered across the ten tracks, at times delving into dark themes such as drug addiction on the epic album closer, End Of The Line and a man’s place in today’s politically correct society on Bones In The Fire.

So take a shot of Snake Bite Whisky in the form of Black Candy. This party is just getting started!

    Overall, the strengths of the album are the bass melodies, hooks, and guitar sweeps. In true punk rock/MOTORHEAD fashion, the songs are short and have a traditional verse/chorus structure, but they’re full of flavor and spice fitting an album about an 80s rocker. Check them out if you want to rock and have a good time while listening …read more

    Snake Bite Whisky son harina de otro costal. Una rareza de ensueño para un servidor, pues cuesta muchísimo localizar formaciones que practiquen Sleazy con ese grado de pureza.

    Snake Bite Whisky’s Black Candy is an album that would’ve been written if Motörhead had been an 80s party band with the influence of Steel Panther, added with the lethal concoction of punk angst, thrash metal impulses, and the fatal dash of any other drug other than speed …read more
