Neverless: Rock N' Rule
Neverless - Rock N' Rule - [Unsigned]


It's unbelievable to me that this 8 track self release effort from Neverless was created in Deutschland rather than in Kentucky, USA. This is pure bred American hard rock with some serious southern rock that just accidentally was made by a German band.

The only qualm I have about the release is the sound, well expected for a self-release, it doesn't hurt the band too much, but I can't help wondering what these guys could have achieved with a big, fat sound. Still, this album rocks.

"Drivin", the opener, is one of the lesser moments here, it's all right, but it doesn’t have the energy and drive that the following cut – "Burn It Down" has. The strengths are evident – one of the stronger hard rock vocalists around, a solid rhythm section, and good guitar work with a punk attitude. The jewels in the crown, by the way, are the amazing guitar leads, very impressive indeed. The added southern tinged piano just adds another flavor to the mix.

The two best bits are the last three, with the strongest being – "K.B.B", a dirty boozer which has a great, memorable tune, one of the best vocal deliveries in the album, and one fantastic lead. With tracks like this the band HAS to be signed.

"Outta My Way" is another good track, there's a certain Guns N' Roses vibe and some fine guitar parts, again, the sound could've made this even better, but it still works. As does "Medicine", the following track.
I don’t know much about this band, but I know they need to be signed, this is grade A hard rock that just begs for better production values.
