Can I get a hell yeah?

Can I get a good Lord?

Lets Rock n' Roll is the debut effort by Baltimore's Charm City Devils (Eleven Seven). Discovered and groomed by Nikki Sixx, Charm City Devils have a straight ahead rock sound with a Glam vibe.

Yeah, they kind of rule.

You probably already know the song "Let's Rock n' Roll (Endless Road)." The song was used in the promo videos for Crue Fest last year and is the first single from the album of the same name.

There are a lot of really great songs on Lets Rock n' Roll and my favorite - by far - is "True Love (Hell Yeah)." Talk about a party anthem with a chorus that just gets stuck in your head. It's impossible to not sing along with "Hell Yeah" - it's just that good.

I'm also digging "Best of the Worst" and "Money." Both are gritty rockers. No, the guys in Charm City Devils are not reinventing rock here, but that's not what they've set out to do. Lets Rock n' Roll is a party album - built for summer, made for fun.

You can celebrate the band's new album tonight in Baltimore at The Quarter. The album release party is also being dubbed as the official M3 warm-up gig. I'll be there.

Didnt know that - guess I didn't like them enough to do any research on them. Like I said , they sound pretty good , just not mind-blowing. I'll check out the cd though.

Well, at the risk of offering a descenting opinion, I don't see what's so great about these guys. the production is straight out of 1996 with way too much of that stupid vocal trick of making it sound like he's singing through a telephone. I get the feelng that this band doesn't know what it wants to be. do they want to be a straight up rock band, or are they trying to pull in the alternative rock crowd? I'm not worried though. My musical Summer will be plenty heated up with the new Chickenfoot album as well as the new ones from freakshow and UFO. I'll pass on this release from Charm City Devils. I think they'll be good one day once they figure out what direction they want to go in, but for now, they're just a lot of unrealized potential.

charm city devils, chickenfoot, and a7x need to revive metal glam and just rock in general. i am tired of shitty bands like asking alexandria and all the deathcore bands the most famous things. i want another generation of motley. and i want a band that will come out like tesla did and start a whole unplugged thing or somethin similar or completly different. time for change
