Some bands make the mistake of trying to repeat the same formula over and over again, while some musicians need the creative freedom to push their boundaries and channel different energies – and that’s what Black Pistol Fire has done with ‘Look Alive’.

The raw groove of “Pick Your Poison”, the mosh pit inducing “Holdin Up,” and the thunderous sounds of “Black Halo” perfectly encapsulates what the band are about.

On the other hand, the soulful title track, “Never Enough” and “Temper Temper” showcases a contemporary sound that blurs the lines of genres whilst simultaneously staying true to their blues/rock roots.

The question is – does the dynamic duo’s new sound hit the mark? Most definitely!  With ‘Look Alive’, the Black Pistol boys are most certainly firing on all cylinders.
