Much like their old tour mates Priestess and Nashville Pussy, Bionic's mix of hot and raw hard rock, garage and punk has all the makings of being a sure thing when it comes to rocking a crowd. Black Blood is an outstanding disc full of some of the nastiest whiskey- and beer-chugging up-tempo rockers to rear their heads. Songs like Q: Is There TV In Heaven? A: Yes, Yes There Is and Silver Jet Plane come off sounding huge, while they also show a sense of humour by using a full marching band on segue song Econo Tusk. Between all the high-quality rock going on here and singer Jonathan Cummins's wild growls and shrieks, Black Blood is just awesome.
