Black Country Communion: BCC IV Review

BCC IV is the upcoming fourth studio album from the English-American hard rock band Black Country Communion featuring bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes, guitarist and vocalist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham and keyboardist Derek Sherinian. It’s the first album to be released since the band’s breakup in 2013. Recorded in Malibu, California, with producer Kevin Shirley, it is due to be released on September 22, 2017. BCC IV expanded the combination of blues rock (Bonamassa’s solo work) and hard rock (Hughes’ previous work with Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, and Bonham’s link with Led Zeppelin) that took place on the first three albums. It’s a high quality hard rock album that brings a great feeling that classic rock is alive and in good hands.

We’re All In This Together­–indeed. For his latest studio album, Walter Trout called some of blues’ best performers–and boy did they come through. Each musician featured on this album has serious blues chops; there’s no one musician on here that is more impressive than the rest, though John Mayall and Joe Bonamassa are probably the two with the greatest fame.
