Welcome Back Delta

Want some Blues-fuelled hard Rock? Then look no further and head over to Gloucester, as these guys have nailed it with their blues groove.

Whereas “Spinal Injury” closes the album with a punch with its harder edged sound.

In short this album rocks! Their groove is not only infectious; from the guitar riffs, pounding rhythm and storming vocals, it is well crafted. These guys are destined to be big. They have an
