Martin J. Andersen is a modern day Danish guitar rock hero riff:master of world class proportions. MJA is a true Six String Renegade axeripper who gives serious guitar rock mojo a new name. Combined with excellent, soul-powered, melodic vocals and the musical talent to nail down strong, memorable songs, Andersen is the authentic real deal. On his latest musical effort entitled "Deliverance At The Crossroads", he has produced & delivered an awesome, classic heavy guitar rock disc that stands tall, shines bright like the sun and lands with endless amounts of strength, focus & excellence.

The Blindstone "Deliverance At The Crossroads" disc is an amazing musical display of bad-ass riffage & lead guitar firepower that is highly recommended to fans of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Marino, Robin Trower, Leslie West, Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, King's X and all the previous excellent, essential Blindstone discs.

BLINDSTONE - "Shouting From The Rooftops"

 

 

· reviews ·

The mighty Danish power blues rock trio Blindstone return with their latest slab of riff intensity, 'Deliverance At The Crossroads', powered by Martin J. Andersen (guitars, vocals), Jesper Bunk (bass) and Sigurd Johnk-Jensen (drums). Ever since their 2003 debut, 'Manifesto', Blindstone have put out great albums and 'Deliverance At The Crossroads' is no exception to the rule. It goes for the throat straight out of the starting blocks and never really lets up. From the opening notes of "World Of Trouble" to the down and dirty swagger of tracks like, "Stick To Your Guns", "One Beautiful Tribe", "Another Day" to the innovative bluesy textures of the title track, and the album closer, "Dove". There's very little this trio can do wrong. Their chemistry is tight as a glove. You can tell these guys truly love what they are doing. Martin J. Andersen is just an unbelievable talent both vocally and as a guitarist. With bassist Jesper Bunk and drummer Sigurd Johnk-Jensen the trio have an unbeatable combination. If your musical taste fancy the likes of Frank Marino, Robin Trower or Eric Gales, Blindstone is guaranteed to satisfy. If this is your first time reading about this power trio, I recommend checking out the band's catalog and finally discover what some of us have known for years - that this band rocks and are in a league of their own. In today's flood of over produced music, 'Deliverance At The Crossroads' is pure blues rock perfection with the intricity that only these 3 can deliver with many layers of sonic riff intense goodness.

Well I’ve never hidden my appreciation of the music of Danish blues rockers Blindstone, far from it, a band seldom off my music rotation since I first encountered them quite by chance on Grooveyard Record‘s website. Since that time the band have released in total nine albums if you include their newest ‘Deliverance At The Crossroads‘. Guitarist / lead singer Martin J. Anderson is one of the most underated guitarists in Europe who is capable of playing not only blues rock but has branched out into hard rock & heavy metal with other bands & projects.

With the bass guitar of Jesper Bunk and tub thumper Sigurd Jøhnk-Jensen making up the other two thirds of the band, this trio have amply captured in my mind the very essence of blues rock, namely, heavy, dirty groove riffs that demand you crank that damn volume knob right up and wallow in the soundscape now pounding from your speakers or cans!

From the opening notes of ‘World Of Trouble‘ you're pinned against the wall, realising you're in for an absolute audio treat. When comparing ‘Deliverance At The Crossroads‘ with the band’s previous albums there is a definite leaning towards that rockier, dirty end of the blues rock spectrum, an area I like to dwell in, an area that you’ll also find the likes of that man from Hell, Michael Katon, an area quite happy to stick two fingers up to ‘traditional blues’ and just crank and play.

While there isn’t a poor track on the album, there are always going to be tracks that either stand out or just make that connection. One is the title track ‘Deliverance At The Crossroads‘. It’s just over 4 1/2 minutes of instrumental glory, a track that just envelopes you in that afor mentioned soundscape. The guitar playing stands up against any of Martin’s peers. ‘What I Want‘ and ‘Olympus‘ pound and scream, with a heavy guitar sound and frantic bass and drums it’s almost headbanging material. And ‘Dove‘ with its mixture of acoustic and electric guitar beautifully woven, creating a wonderful foot tapping end to what is a superb release.

This for me is potentially a cross over album, appealing to blues rock and rock fans alike. With the band making a welcome return to Ramblin’ Man festival next year here’s hoping they get the recognition they so justly deserve.
