Angel Forrest - Hell Bent With Grace - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Hell Bent With Grace, from Angel Forrest, and it's a solid rocker. Opening with Menie the Monster, a sure footed rocker, Forrest shows excellent poise with a gritty edge on lead vocals, backed by Denis Columbus on acoustic guitar and bass, Ricky Paquette on guitar, Bernard Quesy on B3, Alec Mc Kelchenson on bass, and Sly Carombe on drums. Get It On has just the right amount of funk with a hot bottom, and great drum work by Carombe and some real nice guitar riffs by Paquette. The Blame Game has all of the components of a radio track with the strong melody line, solid backing vocals by Paquette and just a light tint of country with a memorable guitar solo by Paquette. Bluesy ballad, Marigold, is my favorite track on the release with strong vocals by Forrest, a really nice melody and rich Wurlitzer tones and guitar interweave by Quesy and Paquette. Wrapping the release is Bane Lorraine, a strong rocker with a steady beat. The band pulls out the stops on this one with a loose instrumental overture stretch which gives the release a bit more weight.
