Weld together the high octane sex sleaze of prime era Motley Crue with the nuts and bolts arena pub sound of AC/DC, and detail this rawk machine with a hint of post grunge darkness, and you’ve got Torrential Thrill’s second album.

The Melbourne foursome produced an excellent debut two years ago with Mars, and they’ve followed it up in fine style with this rocking set.

Highlights are plentiful: rockers will love Hail Mary’s turbo charged superstomp, whereas Nothing As It Seems is moodier, starting slowly and building to an aggressive finale. Waking The Neighbours is rock n’ roll, pure and simple, whilst Not My President takes a swipe at that idiot Trump and shows the band can do political comment when it suits them. There’s even a ballad for good measure – Through The Fire mixes acoustic and electric sonics well to create a heavy emotional mood.

Torrential Thrill are doing what many thought was impossible: proving that there IS a new wave of talented Aussie rock bands waiting to break out. It’s time you gave them and their ilk a chance to show you what they’re made of.
