Slash – World On Fire [2014]

Slash returns with his third solo album and it is another very strong hard rock affair full of killer riffs and tasty solos. Following on from the great reception that his previous album Apocalyptic Love received, Slash continues with his band The Conspiritors featuring Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy on vocals. The album is produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette who has done some amazing work in the rock realm including recently the last three Alter Bridge albums and Mark Tremonti’s amazing solo album All I Was.

His ability to create a massive rock sound that features a great mix and separation of instruments within each song has helped make him one of the best in the industry. The production is high quality featuring lush guitar tones and a huge sounding rhythm section with the melodic vocals of Myles Kennedy putting the icing on the proverbial rock cake. The album contains seventeen songs and clocks in at a whopping 77 minutes which is astounding in this day and age. Highlights include the cracking title track that opens the album with a bang, the huge chorus of “Wicked Stone”, the melodic ballad “Bent To Fly”, the classic rock sounds of “Battleground”, the epic vibe and nice vocal hook of “Dissident”, and the moody album closer “The Unholy”.

Whilst there’s obviously lots of music to digest the album really does roll along nicely and it’s very easy to press repeat once the final notes ring quiet. Slash and his band have really done a great job in supplying fans with a great amount of quality material over the past couple of years and World On Fire is another very strong addition to a solo discography that is really starting to look legendary.
