Hulk – Cowboy Coffee & Burned Knives – Album Review

by Emma

Brussels trio Hulk are knocking on the door of the big time with their forthcoming album release Cowboy Coffee… available from 27 June 2005 on Suburban Records.

Hulk were lucky enough to be invited to the Rancho de la Luna studio (home to Queens of the Stone Age Desert Sessions recordings) where this album was nailed in little over a week!

The tracks sparkle with cutting guitars, smooth intoxicating vocals and some splendid riffs. Cowboy Coffee… is original and mixes the fast hard rock of It’s Allright and my favorite Real Rocker (which is catchy as hell by the way) with the velvety tones of Sorry and Down. There are a handful of real gems on here and only one or two weaker tracks out of twelve. A reminder of how rock music used to be and a taster of things to come.

Hulk are most definitely worth checking out, and if Cowboy Coffee & Burned Knives… hits the spot get hold of a copy of the debut album ‘Party Time’.
