Background
Voodoo Six were the London based outfit that first came to our attention back in 2008, with their excellent CD 'First Hit For Free'. The band, formed by bassist Tony Newton and guitarist Richie Faulkner (yes, the very chap who has since replaced KK Downing in the mighty Judas Priest) has been around since 2003. The lineup as it was back in 2008 is pretty much the same, with the exception of Luke Purdie who steps into the shoes of departed singer Henry Rundell. In 2010, the band released their 'Fluke?' CD (Powerage Records) which debuted Purdie on vocals, V6 going out on the road in support of UFO and The Union along with one-off dates alongside Iron Maiden and Cinderella. 2011 has seen the band playing support gigs to Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe, and it also sees them release a limited edition Download Only six-track EP called 'Falling Knives', which we're looking at today.


The Songs
'Falling Knives' includes three new tracks, plus three reworked versions of songs found on that 'First Hit For Free' CD. The new tracks are: 'Falling Knives', 'Sharp Sand' and 'Stop'. The reworked songs are 'One More Day', 'Feed My Soul' and 'No Friend Of Mine'. V6 are still purveyors of hard rock with a modern and intense twist. You can hear traits from the past too, but I feel this band are moving forward and forging their own identity. Very much a guitar based entity, there's power in the grooves, 'Falling Knives' leading off with dense and sledgehammer like guitarwork, you'll be doing well to avoid blades of steel coming at you from all directions. 'Sharp Sand' is a punchy affair, played in a modern context but with interesting stop/start sections as well. The band just halt right in the middle of the flow, then pick up again as if nothings happened.. lol! To my ears, 'Stop' is the best of new tracks, so laden with attitude and intensity, like heavy traces of thick and gooey treacle. A very 70's flavoured track. Of the revamped songs, the soundmeter seems to have been turned up a few notches, while Purdie's vocals appear to be more 'rough n ready' than those versions sung previously by Rundell.


In Summary
2012 promises to be a busy year for V6, with a new album on the way and more tours lined up. With Purdie as the frontman, the band can look forward to more raucous performances in the near future. Check out the Voodoo Six website where you can purchase this EP, now available upon its November 28 release date.
