This Is Rattlerock is the debut full length from Yorkshire duo Snakerattlers that is now available via Moon Skull Records. The Snakerattlers emerged from the ashes of The Franceens and have transformed themselves into a band that channels the primal soul of rock ‘n roll via the sinister reverb heavy chords of Link Wray, the unhinged psychobilly of The Meteors and the primitive origins of The Cramps to create something that has the essence of their influences, but crucially they manage to avoid being derivative or in any way an anachronism.

From the dark ominous opening chords of I Won’t Hold Back you know that you’re for a demonic take on rock ‘n roll that is in no way designed to save anyone’s soul, with This Is Rattlerock the Snakerattlers take every facet and mutation of rock ‘n roll and twist it into their own stripped down hybrid. At times they’re channelling the original spirit of the orginators before veering off into a demented psychobilly rampage, the result being that they have delivered a debut album that simultaneously recalls Link Wray‘s Rumble and The Cramps debut full length, Songs The Lord Taught Us, via the insanity and originality of the spirit of the best of the unhinged garage bands, both past and present.

I recently caught the Snakerattlers live, which added to my intrigue in hearing how their raw and primitive menace would transfer to the studio, it turns out that with This Is Rattlerock the Snakerattlers have managed to capture the raw essence and dark energy of their live performance, something that few bands manage when they make the transition from the stage to the studio. With This Is Rattlerock the Snakerattlers have delivered an impressive debut album that hits the spot on every single track, if the devil has the best tunes then there’s no doubt that the Snakerattlers debut full length is playing on repeat on hell’s jukebox.
