Review: Bobaflex - Hell in My Heart

Review: Bobaflex - Hell in My Heart

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
