Ok, the opening guitar lick got my attention. Nice and nasty. Some interesting chord changes in the chorus. The guitar playing is great and the rest of the band is up at the same level. The vocals are nice and tight. This was a well -written, well- performed tune.

"Decade of Decay Review"

Voodoo Moonshine's line-up is as follows:
Gary Geiger- Vocals
Jeff Losawyer- Guitar & Backing Vocals
Bryan Nikkel - Guitar & Backing Vocals
Trey Madsen - Bass & Backing Vocals
Lonnie Hammer - Drums & Backing Vocals

'The Decade of Decay' is their latest release, a 10 track album that's mixture of blusey, southern hard rock songs and big 80's style ballads will surely have something for everyone.

We kick of with 'It's about time', the best song to start with. Sets the tone for the album very well. Great chorus, proper hard rock.

The ballads on the album are great. Very rare to hear a good ballad now a days. 'The one that got away' is superb. Gary's vocals and the guitar solo's add an edge to the song which stops it being too mushy and sentimental. I hesitate to include 'Cobwebs in my soul' as a ballad, as though it starts of slower it becomes quite heavy , it stands out as being different from the rest of the album. One tiny criticism, this is a good song, but the electric guitar riffs after the softer vocals at the beginning sound a little out of place and take away from the music in the background and from the emotion in Gary's voice.

'Locked and Loaded' relies heavily on the skills of guitarists Jeff and Bryan, it's less blues orientated than some of the other tracks though they nearly over compensate for that with the next track 'Piece of Mind' which is very like the Black Crowes

After listening to that CD I feel like I have mystically transported back to a time, when rock music was heavy and men had lots of hair. It appears that Tennessee bad boys Voodoo Moonshine have no regard whatsoever for current musical trends... which is excellent in my opinion. They know what they are and they are not afraid to play true hard and heavy rock, the way it was meant to be.

"CD Review"


This band definitely has a very good high quality sound, which is very much akin to late 80s/early 90s American groovy Melodic Hardrock like TESLA, SKID ROW, GREAT WHITE and a bit of FIREHOUSE (such as in the great ballads “The one that got away” and “Wasted love”). The band has a fantastic singer called GARY GEIGER, who sounds like if he came straight out of the LA scene from 1985, which is a positive thing, because I so much prefer this way of singing instead of the current American way of singing (which is either depressive as in Post-Grunge times or Childish as in a GREENDAY Punky Poprock affair). If you enjoy bands like TESLA, GREAT WHITE, EVERY MOTHER’S NIGHTMARE, GUARDIAN, TUFF, SKID ROW or any other PERRIS RECORDS praised band, then this VOODOO MOONSHINE is yours, because
that similar sounding groovy Melodic Hardrockstyle of the late 80s can be heard in most of the songs on this CD, with even a slight touch of POISON during the chorus of ”Piece of mind” which then again has a guitarsound
similar to LYNYRD SKYNYRD, so a mix of glam and southern hardrock!
Whatever you might think, I am sure you’ll get the picture what this band is all about. More info at: http://www.voodoomoonshinetheband.com

"CD Review"

Comments: Calling themselves "a heavy southern groove swamp metal band," Voodoo Moonshine's release Decade of Decay is damn cool. They boast a twin guitar attack-Jeff Losawyer and Bryan Nikkel-and a singer in Gary Geiger who captures the Southern Rock and snarly howling hard rock vibe of the mid-80s. Although they lean a little too close to their roots at times, this is a strong debut from a talented band.

The CD begins with the crunchy, attitude-heavy "It's About Time." When you first hear Geiger's voice, you'll be impressed. The music is weird, with atmospheric guitar passages, and the chorus of "Well, it's about fucking time," couldn't be more blunt. The solo is somewhat bluesy and played with a lot of feel, and works well in the confines of the song.

Next is "R.I.P.," and this could come right out of the '80s. It has the kind of attitude you'd hear from Skid Row, and is just as sleazy. These guys are definitely on to something.

Now, when you get to "Piece of Mind," you are going to be confused. You'll swear this is "Sweet Home Alabama," because it sounds almost exactly like the intro to that song. When the vocals start, Geiger sings a line that reminds you a little too strongly of "Big wheel, keep on turning." The pacing, the rhythm, everything about this song screams "I've already been written." Considering the songwriting prior to this track, this is a letdown.

"Cobwebs in My Soul" goes back to what they do best-original sounding music. This is a slower song, but picks up steam after the second chorus, and Geiger lets out a wicked howl. It sounds a little like Alice in Chains in parts, but keeps its own identity.

"Wasted Love" is their ballad, a slow, almost Country sounding composition. Geiger shines again, singing with a real sense of longing. Voodoo Moonshine plays a myriad of different styles of music on this CD, and every single one of them work.

If you are into Southern, swampy rock, these guys are can't-miss. They write smart songs, they wield a talented singer, and they do just about everything right. Except for the one track that goes beyond "an homage," Decade of Decay truly makes you want to lift a glass or 12 and abuse the hell out of your liver.
