Review:

Danish rockers, I’ll Be Damned, return to face their second album head on.

Featuring a vast array of genres from stoner rock, to metal, to punk, to rock and roll, Road to Disorder is a hard album to pin down and catagorise. Each track is its own unique take on a different genre and it feels more like a collection of separate songs rather than one album.

I'll be damned - Road To Disorder

Because of the constant swapping and jumping from genres without an organic flow, the album can be a bit jarring at times. For example, I love the track Pig Burner, it’s a heavier doom-laden track with some sludge vibes. However, it comes between a track more akin to The Hives, with an upbeat cruising feel, and a steady southern style rock track. I feel the album needed a bit more consistency, maybe having one key sound with the out of place tracks at the end as ‘bonus tracks’.

It’s a good album, and a fun listen. I imagine it will go down well on various streaming sites as listeners can pick and choose the songs that match their preferred genres. It’s like a smorgasbord of rock, with lots of influences, but hard to pick out the band’s own sound at times.
