Scattered Hamlet - Swamp Rebel Machine

by Kevin Wierzbicki

Drummer Jake Delling Le Bas taps out a staccato military march at the beginning of "Battle Hymn," this album's opening track, and certainly he and his Scattered Hamlet bandmates prove to be ready for a rock 'n' roll ruckus on what ensues. The band plays hard rock with a southern bent and a party hard, we don't give a (hoot) about what anybody thinks attitude, creating a new anthem for beer drinkin' hell-raisers with "White Trash" and rocketing down the highway with an ample supply of cold suds on hand in "Four Barrel Mojo." Lead singer Adam Joad has a voice not unlike that of Jesse James Dupree, the front man for like-minded band Jackyl, and echoes of Aerosmith, Motley Crue and even ZZ Top can be heard here. In other words, like their forerunners, Scattered Hamlet rock like crazy and they're not afraid to throw a liberal dose of sleaze into the mix here and there. All that is pretty well summed up in cuts like "Outlaw Breed," "Swamp Rebel Machine" and "The Lesson" which pays homage to late fellow rebels like Waylon Jennings, Duane Allman and Ronnie Van Zandt. Swamp Rebel Machine is one of those albums that makes you want to go and rock out with the band live; right now fans are in luck on that front as Scattered Hamlet is on tour through mid-November.

The album will be released November 4th. Order it here
