Review: Bobaflex – Hell in My Heart

Rated:

3/5

Point Pleasant, West Virginia, hard rockers Bobaflex release their impressive fourth album, Hell In My Heart, after a tumultuous four years that saw their former label go bankrupt and the band go through numerous lineup changes. But these trials and tribulations seem to have only made the group stronger. The record opens with a deathbed confession that quickly blasts into the engine-revving anthem “Chemical Valley” and continues on a rampaging path with few slow points. Sounding like a streamlined and angrier Avenged Sevenfold made for biker bars, Bobaflex deliver plenty of the swaggering punk attitude with which they first burst onto the scene in 1998. And they have reason to swagger: Though the 15-song epic does feel like a few tracks could be trimmed off, leaving a leaner record, Hell is a solid hard-rock outing with plenty of memorable tunes. Standouts include the serpentine “Slave,” the foot-stomping “Bury Me With My Guns On,” and the full-throttle “Dangerous.” But the real highlight–and surprise–is the record closer, a great cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.” JEREMY BORJON

    Great band, even their earliest stuff on their debut album Primitive Epic was killer. My favorite band!

  • Domwalker6660

    Simply one of the best bands you could ever see…Made up of the 5 coolest guys in the world!!! Jerod can slap a bass like a pimp does his ho!!! Marty and Shaun both have guitar licks that have a crunchy cut throat sound, all while trading mind blowing vocals!!! Tommy beats on the drums like a 14 year old boy would his peter!!! Chris adds the final ingrediant to the madness with his heavy over-tones on guitar!!! And just when you thought it couldnt get better their voices ring off a harmony that will tickle your ears to a shear orgasm!!!! Thats my way of saying…BUY THE ALBUM FOLKS!!!!!! Matt Byrd (aka) DOOM!!!

    These guys are one of the hardest working groups I have ever shared a stage with. Bobaflex is a no bull rock n roll juggernaut,Bringing a shear honesty to their sound that hard to match. If you do not have a copy of Hell in my heart…..Do yourself a favor…get one….and a copy to turn a friend on to
