Steel Petals / Press

“With a grittier guitar-based sound and a teetering stack of electric blues riffs, local peer trio Steel Petal’s new studio collection rocks hard and well. It’s the second full-length from lead singer, guitarist, and pedal steel player Blake Ohlson and company.”

“There is a darkness, a certain swampy sinfulness even, to the blues-based rock of local quartet Steel Petals. The band draws on influences including Southern rock, gospel and acid blues, creating a sultry and colorful collage of rich, regionally defining genres that, not surprisingly, mix well together. In only its second year, Steel Petals has gained a local following through what has mostly been word-of-mouth about the band's lively and technically precise performances.”

“From the opening slide guitar riffs paired with the crunchy electric fingerwork of lead-off track "The Tides," it's immediately evident that Steel Petals have something to prove with their new self-titled album.”

“Easily one of the best CDs of 2010. The CD is full of what I like to refer to as Hard Rockin' Southern Blues. There's nothing else out there quite like it, and the CD is great from start to finish. Check out the samples, then download the CD, and see for yourself. Enjoy!”
