Sixth full-lentgh album for Chicago's rockers BIBLE OF THE DEVIL!
For the Love of Thugs and Fools is a collection of raging Rock n' Roll songs that encapsulate the band's saga musically and personally over the years since the last full-length. Returning to Phantom Manor studios in Chicago to work with engineer Mike Lust, who has engineered numerous BOTD recordings in the past, the band sought to emphasize their trademark bludgeoning two-guitar attack and mammoth hooks with an increased attention to soaring, anthemic vocals.
Release date (Europe) 15/6 - shipping starts 6/6!
“An extremely good, band that harken back to the glory days of heavy metal such as Thin Lizzy, Priest and of course Maiden and all of the rest of the late 70s and early 80s metal bands. The type of songs that just get into your brain and sit there on repeat, hour after hour until you just can't wait to put the album on and hear them again.” – Scratch the Surface Webzine [Rating: 8/10]
“The latest addition by Bible of the Devil rocks out for a full 45 minutes and hardly lets up long enough for you to fuel up your hog so you can continue on the road. The entire unit shines on For Love of Thugs and Fools.” – Metal Blast
