Black Box Revelation: Shiver of Joy EP Review

After releasing three full-length studio albums and one EP across the pond, Belgian rockers Black Box Revelation make their stateside debut with their second EP, Shiver of Joy. It’s a warm, bluesy escapade that paves the band’s North American future with plenty of energy and promise.

Black Box Revelation have been a band since 2005, even though the two guys have been playing together for more than 10 years now. That long-time jamming relationship brings an energy that is a driving force in this carefree yet near-perfect iteration of their jams. The band’s abilities absolutely ring true on Shiver of Joy.

As a North American release, the EP is a pretty beefy selection of 4 previously released songs as well as two new b-sides from their upcoming full-length. There’s plenty of stuff to hear, and thanks to the talents of the band, it’s exceptionally entertaining. Each song has a unique feel that keeps things fresh, but all are enough alike to keep the listener from reeling. That’s an especially good thing, because the band seem to have a bright future in the West.
