Demo Review: Jezebel
From the ashes of Jezebel from Sheffield, we have Jezebel from Nottingham. I was decidedly underwhelmed by the demo that came through some time last year, but this is a distinct improvement. A move to the East Midlands and a full lineup change has culminated in something harder, sharper and distinctly more rock-based.
From fast-paced and angry opener Drama Queen, a hard hitting attitude dominates, with heavy guitars and some fairly catchy choruses. Highlight on this one for me is AC/DC-esque Burn The Witch (nothing to do with the Stone Gods track of the same name), a stomping, sleazy tongue in cheek number about encounters with dodgy women.
Unlike some others playing in this realm of fairly straightforward rock, Jezebel keep things fairly varied and remain engaging throughout. I bet Jezebel mk1 are kicking themselves now!
