Heavy Blues trio The Wooden Shields release debut album “First Fall of the Axe”
They will bring you awesome blues guitar riffs, fast Rock ‘n Roll rhythms and howlin’ vocals. But above all the Wooden Shields hailing from Paris, France are good musicians that play a mix of heavy Blues and Rock ‘n Roll in various styles. Their inspitation comes from the Delta to the Chicago blues and from the Bay Area to the far East Coast. You will quickly notice that their music easy fits the liquor bottle it is made for.
Wooden Shields Album “First Fall of the Axe”
After releasing two singles and a live album, their first full length studio album was just “First Fall of the Axe” released. In the Wooden Shields you will hear a sound that is comparable to the Black Keys or Reign Wolf. Inspired by the likes of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough the Wooden Shields are able to create some of the best composed songs around. The diversity of the songs on this album really amazed and therefore it is a pleasure to listen to it.
“With a poised, soulful croon, the band sing out each of their battle songs as if it is their last fight. To witness one of their shows is to stand exhausted on a field of battle and survey the scars and bruises left by the wild energy and the fuzzy sound.”
