If you feel inclined to go back to jamming along to some debaucherous hard rock with a little hint of blues and southern rock thrown in, I'm going to suggest Bossnova to you. The very talented musicians are John George (vocals), Dave Markunas (bass), Joe Cook (drums) and Tim Duboc (guitar) and are based out of the Boston, MA area.

Bossnova bring a blast of pure energy and charisma to their live performances. They make you want to move, throw your fists in the air and bang that head.  One evening Nina McCarthy hands me their CD Blues for the New Eon  saying “This will be a good pick me up for you.” Oh yes, indeed. It sounded monstrous blaring from my car stereo and I could have cared less about the neverending rain. Ironically, she discovered them in her hometown of Westerly, RI at a show hosted by vocalist Johnnie himself, where he also resides. It’s not too often that really good bands come out of Westerly! 

We rush in with “Kiss of Death” and it's kind of the same feeling I got when I first listened to Alter Bridge - soulful, bluesy and a tight musicianship that is almost palpable from the get go. “Fill the Void” thoroughly crushes and the meaning of the lyrics can be attested to by many folks. Hence I fill my void with metal. I loved the tribal feel of “Medicine God” at the very intro and then the riffs wash over you. The vocals are perfect for this track and I am reminded again of the sexy svelte vocals of Myles Kennedy. “Thalassophile” is a bit different from the rest of the album. It's rather soothing and hypnotic and almost like an intermission for the rest of the album. Again we have the mournful, yearning vocals, simply beautiful. My favorite song is “Against the Wall.” I interpret it as a song for all the bad girls out there. Ever a fan of a song that tells a dark tale, “Mr Gilmore's Flower Shoppe” is quite twisted. The darker melody fits the mood of the song. 

An excellent listen and a monstrous live show. Give them a listen.
