For those arguing that rock 'n' roll is truly the devil's music, they might just have the evidence they need in the form of Grave Danger. It's not the band's sound -- which isn't really satanic rock, but actually a powerful melange of surf, punk and rockabilly. Nor is it the songs -- usually sprite instrumentals or tales of drunken and homicidal revenge. It's just that whenever this trio hits the stage, the audience -- composed of normally upstanding citizens and community members -- follows the band down a road of booze-fueled hedonism, excess and good old-fashioned destructive fun.

Led by veteran Arizona wildmen Kevin Daly (Hellfire, Grant & the Geezers) Rich Merriman (Keltic Cowboys, Rumble Cats) and Vince Ramirez (Flathead) the trio has been earning praise, popularity and costly repair bills for performances that have seen band members wreaking havoc, destroying stages and shaving their heads onstage (among other things which, for legal reasons, we can't mention here). Taking their cues from well-imbibed showstoppers (Janis Joplin, George Jones, Foster Brooks), a Grave Danger concert makes folks forget God, good manners and city ordinances, leaving most venues drowning in a post-show ocean of blood, sweat and broken bottles.

Now Grave Danger is bringing that sense of unbridled mayhem to its self-titled debut, produced by Daly and Jeff Farias and released as part of a joint venture between Rustic Records and Truxton label head Dave Ramsey. This 11 song platter finds the group mixing a fiery set of instrumentals with cleverly written odes to drinking, love, loss, drinking, hatred, drinking and murder...oh yeah, and drinking.

The group will be leaving its desert breeding ground soon and heading on tour in an effort to spread its unholy gospel across the country, with a plan for global domination by 2001.

One listen to this disc and you'll agree that the group's sound truly splits the difference between Link Wray and Anton LeVay. Forget the old bit about a rock 'n' roll heaven. If there's a rock 'n' roll hell, Grave Danger's gonna be the house band.
