Northern Ireland is the home for rock bands like Ash, In Case of Fire, Fighting With Wire, Mama´s Boys, Therapy? and Trucker Diablo. I reviewed Trucker Diablo´s debut album "The devil rhythm" (2011) at melodic.net and gave it 3 stars, now they´re following up with the new album "Songs of Iron" and they continue to deliver old school hard rock with a touch of NWOBHM. "Songs of Iron" is just as good as the first album but perhaps a bit more melodic, if you mix Praying Mantis, Scorpions and Warrant in a big blender - you´ll get Trucker Diablo´s 2nd album. The southern rock of "Highway radio" is one of the highlights along with the radio ready "Maybe you´re the one", while fans of the debut will enjoy the pumping hard rock of "The rebel" and "Drive". They have opened for Foo Fighters and Thin Lizzy so they have already gotten a taste for the big stages. Keep an eye on Trucker Diablo, they might be headed to a town near you this summer.
