Black Jetts, The, Sever The Serpent's Head Before It Strikes

When Gabe Stiff calls for some protective headgear, it's time to clear the kids from the room. "You better strap your helmet on," the Black Jetts frontman howls early on his band's 3rd and latest disc, Sever The Serpents Head Before it Strikes, one of the best albums to come out of Vegas in '08. Alive with slobberin' guitars, spine-tingling organ fills and lots of leering catcalls, this rock and soul powerhouse gets both fists and hips a shakin'. "The line has been drawn, we are the solution," Stiff thunders on Electric Revolution. "And you're either with us or against us." Count us among the former.
