Scottish rock power trio, Hair of the Dog, return this summer with their highly anticipated third studio album, "This World Turns". Mixed by James Atkinson (Gentlemans Pistols) and mastered by Tony Reed (Mos Generator) "This World Turns" sees Hair of the Dog yet again crank up the intensity and maturity of their sound to deliver an album that is truly of another world.
"Since "The Siren's Song" our lives have all turned greatly, Jon now has two kids, Iain is married and I am due to marry in October. Such life events naturally cause you to pause and reflect on your life and where you want it to head. "This World Turns" is the idea that no matter what happens in life, no matter how good or bad times get, the world will always continue to turn; so you got to move with it, roll with the punches and strive to give this one shot on "the ride" your all."
From the opening crescendo of title track This World Turns, a 10 minute long riff heavy jam, to the closing tear filled chords of 4AM, "This World Turns" is certainly a ride in itself. This is Hair of the Dog cranked to 11, the riffs are heavier and more complex in their make-up, Iain Thomson's melodic basslines sore throughout, whilst Jonathan Holt's frantic rolling drums fill each song with an energy that harks back to one Jason Bonham. True to form, Adam Holt delivers a vocal performance that captivates and haunts from the opening line, pushing his vocal range to new boundaries, whilst the lyrics remain as true and as honest as ever.
