Fire Drill Album Review: How about some in your face bar rocking blues? The debut release from King Mud is raw, muscular and full of distorted hard blues rock that will have you grinding your own air guitar in minutes. The band is no stranger to this sound or record label as King Mud features members of Left Lane Cruiser, The Black Diamond Heavies and Radio Moscow. That puts a little more power behind Victory Motel Sessions as you realize this is not the members first rodeo. The music stands up for itself here as lead track “Rat Time” is a 5 minute gut buster that showcases King Mud’s skills instantly. King Mud not only sounds at home on Alive Records but they honestly represent the music that has always made the label necessary. Victory Motel Sessions is full of memorable riffs and some great bluesy jams, so if that is your thing don’t miss checking out this record!
