Now we have a bit of a change of pace for you. Trucker Diablo are a balls out foot to the floor four piece from North Ireland.
Playing a heady 45 minute set fused from classic and heavy southern rock it felt like stage 3 was converted into a red neck truck stop. Throw in plenty of anthemic vocals and that’s what Trucker Diablo are serving, in a shot glass naturally.
The energy they played with poured off them and spilled onto the crowd getting the room wound up and rocking out. Dancing was spotted at the front as Trucker Diablo broke down the great British reserve song by song. With every riff crafted to grab you and shake you up there is no stopping Trucker Diablo in keeping the crowd right where they wanted. There were a few slower tracks showing the band’s range but this is Hammerfest so it was soon kicked back up into high gear right till the end.
This is heavy buoyant and bouncy road trip rock that keeps you on the road till you’ve found the next place to rest your head. Pass me my plaid shirt and trucker cap. Mine are the Mack truck keys, thanks.
