New Releases: April 22, 2022: Audrey Horne

Audrey Horne - Devil's Bell


Audrey Horne is a Norwegian band has been at it for two decades. They are a band that I would classify as “new to me.”

A few months back I was sent the promo video for the album’s title track. The call back to the NWOBHM, specifically Iron Maiden caught my ear immediately. So I posted the track on my Patreon page, to see if my Patrons were into the track as well. 

The best thing about Devil’s Bell, is yes, the title track does sound like Maiden. But none of the other tracks sound like it was influenced by the British band. Sure there are things here and there, but the rest of the album really varies. It’s without a doubt, all hard rock. But, some of it feels like Thin Lizzy, some like Y&T. A little 70s and 80s hard rock, with some modern production so as to not make the album sound totally retro, or dated.

The album is pretty solid top to bottom. If you were like me and didn’t know Audrey Horne, give Devil’s Bell a listen this weekend.

Here is Audrey Horne with the track "Animal" off of their latest album Devil's Bell.

Signals From Mars Trivia Tuesday on Twitch is a new show where, as you might suspect, I throw out a bunch of hard rock and metal trivia questions to the audience.

Last week’s game came down to the very last question, with the winner taking away a $5 discount from the Mars Attacks Podcast Merch store. Will tonight bring a new champ?

Not only do you need to know the correct answer, but you also need to be the quickest to answer correctly. The faster you answer, the more points you obtain. But answer wrong, and you’ll lose points.
