You're actually tempted to hit "play" and take it all in again; and that's as good a recommendation as you should need.

Now THIS is a find! An album that is deeply rooted in traditional seventies Southern Rock (a la Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot etc.) whilst also incorporating the more modern approach of the likes of Whiskey Myers and even the dirtier, heavier side of the genre that Black Stone Cherry do so well; even some guitar phrasing owes much to Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society. They're also unafraid of straying outside the Southern restraints by throwing some hefty doses of Grungy riffs and Blues into the mix. What's even more impressive is the fact that, although this is so embedded in the US Southern heritage, Doomsday Outlaw hail from the UK, Derby to be precise. 'Suffer More' is the band's second album, following 2015's 'Black River'.

What is so great about this album is the extent of different styles and moods that run through it; such as the crushingly heavy BSC/Led Zeppelin-hybrid stompers like opener 'Walk On Water' and 'Jericho Cane', or the lengthier Blues-drenched 'All That I Have', 'Blues For A Phantom Limb' and 'Tale Of A Broken Man'. There is also the slow and dirty Grunge of 'Wait Until Tomorrow', and the livelier Rock 'n' Roll of 'Fallback', 'Saltwater', 'I've Been Found' and the awesome Skynyrd at-their-most-commercial 'Bring You Pain'. The fifty-one seconds of 'Pandemonium' however, is a blast of fiery Motörhead that seems at odds with what surrounds it.

They know how to slow it down and alternate too; the mournful 'Suffer More' certainly wouldn't sound out of place on an Alter Bridge album. 'Running Into You' is classy acoustic simplicity while the beautiful 'Standing Tall' is Southern balladry at its finest; swaying from serene acoustic picking to soaring guitar solo, complete with a powerful vocal delivery from Phil Poole, who displays a deep timbre on the heavier parts of the album but can also push his range to the maximum. When he really lets fly he reminds me a little of Stevie Westwood from another highly promising UK act, Bad Touch.

Though there are fifteen tracks on the album, some of them fairly lengthy, 'Suffer More' doesn't outstay its welcome at all; such is the myriad of different styles and moods throughout. You're actually tempted to hit "play" and take it all in again; and that's as good a recommendation as you should need.
