Beat City Tube Works – I Just Cannot Believe Its The Incredible Award winner

Beat City Tube Works
I Just Cannot Believe Its The Incredible
by Caio Botrel at 21 January 2020, 8:20 AM

BEAT CITY TUBEWORKS plays Rock N' Roll and they are good. The band has recently released their newest album "I Just Cannot Believe Its The Incredible" and that's what we are going to talk about. The opening song from the album is "Gravy Days" and it starts out with the most classical guitar solo from the Rock N' Roll history. There's a nice vibe from the '60s and 70's on the instrumental parts from the stanzas, but the chorus reminds a lot the 80's and there's a great vocal line there. It's a great song.

"The Tourist" starts out with a very bluesy n' roll instrumental followed by some howling. The guitar work is good and the bass n' drums sound as well. The vocals reminds PAUL STANLEY which is pretty cool. "Rock N' Roll Degenerate" starts out in a very energetic way, with fast guitar riffs, a good but simple bassline, and good drumming. The chorus is really fun and I bet you will be singing it. "Badlands" starts out with a different atmosphere, nice guitar work and precise bass n' drums on the background. The song grows slowly, but man… it has the vibe! The guitar solo is awesome. "Rat Race" does sounds like a race as its a fast song. There's some dancing sound here and it could easily be a song from KISS. I loved how they can write songs.

"Let Me In" starts out with a beautiful guitar tone with a little bit of overdrive pedal effect and a great solo. Its kind of a ballad and the vocals here are different, they sound clearer and not so aggressive, which was cool. But don't fool yourself as it turns out to be a fast song, shreds, and heavy bass n' drums. The chorus is really good and I loved the drums… probably the highlight here. "Stuck In A Groove" starts out with this kind of Punk vibe and it does feel a mix of Punk with Rock N' Roll. There's a lot of grooves as you could imagine and the instrumental is just awesome. The next five songs "Decline To Conform", "Balrog Boogie", "Shallow 'n' Mean", "Not So Fortunate Son" and "Dog On A Leach" have all the same vibe, energy and they are all full of inspired guitar riffs, solos, and great bass n' drums lines.

"Frenetic Magnetic" is the song that closes the album and has probably one of the best guitar riffs and solos from the whole album. They have plenty of energy and you can hear all their influences here and I think that it was a great way to end it. BEAT CITY TUBEWORKS has written and released a great Rock N' Roll album. The songs are really well written, the instruments were really well played, the vocals are astonishing and the production is great as well. I just think that its a long album and that there's no need for this many songs at one release. But the Gods of Rock N' Roll are proud of their Swedish followers.
