Black Spiders, Sheffield’s answer to AC/DC, are back from their four year hiatus with a riff-led blast full of sing-a-long choruses. This heavy rock quintet may have had to cope with the technological challenges of creating music in an epidemic, including recruiting a drummer (Planet Rock DJ Wyatt Wendel) that some of them had not physically met, but the end result is very tight.

Producer and engineer Matt Elliss has done a great job capturing the energy of a live performance, which is occasionally missing in British rock albums. Crisp distorted guitars and clear vocals follow the pounding drums. This is a great excuse to dust off the air guitar and to enjoy the dirty rock and roll once again.
