I’d like to start out by saying Sal Piamonte kicks major ass and his latest release ‘Lives In Devil City’ is a true testament to that. Sal is a jack of all trades playing to the tune of singer/songwriter, producer and rock ‘n’ roller. This record really offers so much with Sal Piamonte not allowing one dull moment.
‘Lives In Devil City’ is a fictional place created by Sal with the overall theme centered around the classic tale of good vs. evil. The album title may be a fictitious city but the concepts and ideas behind it are very real my friends. Sal Piamonte is battling between the good guys & bad guys and so who will win? Which side will you gravitate toward when listening to ‘Lives In Devil City’?
I do have to say that Piamonte has a true rock ‘n’ roll spirit which shines through on this 12-track recording. Rock & roll is alive and well inside Sal Piamonte! Right from the start on “Take Me Home” you are hearing incredibly catchy rock melodies & riffs that drive hard. Sal proves to be one solid front man with a presence that is well-received. Sal is bringin’ you aggressive, in-your-face energy like on the song “Shining Star” along with a party-like atmosphere on “Go All Night”. Don’t be mistaken though because it’s not all fun & games as Sal & company slow things down a bit and offer up a sensitive approach on “Just A Little Bit”. You’ll also get some major Pop appeal with a powerful sound that fully grabs you on “Tonight”. I also can’t say enough about the excellent harmony that Sal and his bandmates display throughout this record with the track “High Road” really standing out in my opinion. And what a band Sal Piamonte has backing him!
I am definitely a Sal Piamonte fan now and ‘Lives In Devil City’ would be an awesome addition to your music collection. Rock & substance collide to make up one killer album. There is also that cool edge and overall nice-sounding vibe that carries on throughout ‘Lives In Devil City’. I can’t say enough good things about Sal Piamonte and this LP so go get your copy right now! I highly recommend this record and I can not wait to hear what Sal cooks up next!
