Shaman’s Har­vest Mas­cot Records www.mas­cot­la­bel­

Red Hands Black Deeds is the sixth al­bum from hard rock­ing Shaman’s Har­vest. Hail­ing from the US state of Mis­souri, this five-piece out­fit of mainly vo­cals, gui­tars, bass and drums is a re­minder that rock mu­sic is still king. The ti­tle track opens the al­bum, its slow, de­ci­sive beat and deep har­monies a con­tra­dic­tion as to what lies ahead. ‘The Come Up’ has a sound not un­like that of INXS, its lyrics re­fer­ring to lead singer Nathan Hunt’s bat­tle with throat can­cer and de­pres­sion. The omi­nous open­ing sets the scene for anti-war anthem ‘The Devil In Our Wake’, while ‘A Longer View’ starts in­no­cently enough with a pi­ano solo be­fore upping the vol­ume and im­pact. The south­ern-style gui­tar licks on ‘Off The Tracks’ and mostly acous­tic ‘Tusk And Bone’ pro­vides the bal­ance for this fine rock al­bum.
