Black Star Riders

Black Star Riders are the reformed Thin Lizzy. They started out actually having 3 former members in the band, Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton but Downey and Wharton didn't want to do the heavy touring. Their music will be instantly recognizable to anyone who's listened to Thin Lizzy. I've got their first 2 albums, All Hell Breaks Loose and The Killer Instinct. Neither are embarrassments to the Thin Lizzy legacy. In fact both are good in my opinion but then again I'm biased if you couldn't tell from my avatar and sig. They've just released a 3rd album, Heavy Fire, which I will be getting soon.

A song from each of their albums:







What say you guys? Listenable?

And so far they have not toured the US.

Re: Black Star Riders

After reading that review, I'm more disappointed than ever they don't tour the US.

Off topic, but in regards to touring, I see Ghost is opening for Maiden this spring.

Re: Black Star Riders

Ooh. That might be worth seeing. I've seen Ghost, excellent btw, but have never seen the Irons.

Edit: Just looked up that tour. So far no Ohio dates. No Pittsburgh either. That could change though.

Ghost is a really odd one for me. Loved their first album but have liked each one less as they get softer. Seem to be more image than substance...maybe they will learn something from Maiden about how to combine both


As far as BSR goes, as long as you repeat the mantra "this is not going to sound like Thin Lizzy" 10x before listening they are a pretty decent hard rock band. But IMHO there are newer ones that are much better. Check out bands like Horisont, Slow Season and Dunsmuir
