Florence Black – Bed of Nails

Florence Black are finally releasing their new album Bed of Nails and it is an absolute banger!

Start Again opens with a cool riff and some classic rock vocals and I love it.

Don’t Hold Me Down has an upbeat riff and some steady drums to kick it off. The melody is fabulous. It has a huge chorus which is amplified by a quiet hook that leads straight into the chorus.

The titular track has an interesting opening and it’s nice as it offsets the heaviest instrumentation to date in this album. It has a huge hook and is one of the strongest songs on the album.

I love the riffs in The Way Home.

We take a break in The Forest for an acoustic track that really highlights Tristan’s vocals. As the song progresses it turns back into a rock track for the choruses. I love the lyrics as they highlight the beauty of the forest and all that goes on.

Florence Black are extremely talented musicians but also great songwriters. Each track is so well written you might finish it wondering just how many souls you’d have to sacrifice to make an album like this. If you’re into real rock, then this is an album that you’ll love.
