"The classical based rock music that Hion Martell is offering on their 9th record 'Riffs In A Box' can surely not be called new and innovative, but there are once again several songs worthwhile to listen to and even very enjoyable. Cheers to these five cognac loving Swedish guys that are loyal to their pure and honest music since the start of the band in 1992."

They do stretch out in places, with 'Forest Trails And City Street' getting all grandiose, but when they stick to rocking like bastards, then they, um, rock like bastards. Music like it was when I were a lad, this was an enjoyable listen from start to finish.

Keys & Chords

Met ‘Riffs In A Box’ krijgen we meer van hetzelfde, een weliswaar vakkundig uitgevoerde mix van bluesy rockstuff. “No More Hard Times” horen we in het gelijknamige,van potent rockende riffs voorziene nummer dat zo uit het repertoire van The Stones lijkt weggelopen.’Devil In A dress’ en ‘Straight Shooter’ toont enige verwantschap met pubrock maar welke stijl ook gehanteerd wordt het spook van classic rock blijft angstvallig op de loer liggen.

det när det svettas ut Status Quo-minnande tongångar som i Fools som Hion Martell är riktigt bra. Klart bäst är Devil In A Dress där refrängen framkallar volymhöjningar gång på gång. I mitt tycke den allra bästa låt bandet spelat in hittills

"Stolz können sie dabei allemal sein, denn diese Platte ist denen zu empfehlen, die auf vernünftige Unterhaltungsmusik stehen und manche Titel mit einem Schmunzeln bewerten, die dann doch so plötzlich und unerwartet erscheinen."

"Nya skivan är något att spisa till och få leva med i alla dess svängar och vidgade ramar. Jag älskar när Hion Martell bara blåser på med trevliga och roliga texter och får till det där mixen av Mickey Jupp och Nick Loweflowed samtidigt som lite countryrock i stil Drive By Truckers dånar hemma hos undertecknad."

"Yes Refreshments and similar bands can roll over. Fairly nice traditional rock is what Hion Martell gives us. A small splash Status Quo, Little Petty, a little Springsteen and then it maybe like this."

"Det känns som om att bandet spelar någon form av bluesrock som känns väldigt behagligt. Med lite country i.som faktiskt faller mig i smaken. Jag väntar med spänning på att få lyssna på deras nya platta."
