I was living in Tipton, Oklahoma and heard Molly Hatchet was coming to this biker bar in nearby Lawton. The tickets were easy to get, and cheap, so I was excited to see them. A few days before the show, I was at Ft. Sill and bought this album. When I opened it in the car, I could see there were no original members! Bobby Ingram was on the last album and John Gavin had been with them for several albums under the "almost original" lineup. When I put the CD in the player, I was blown away. The music was great! Did it sound like the old Hatchet? Sort of, but with a heavier and more updated sound.

There are plenty of moments that throw this into the southern rock camp, but there are other things, like that powerful guitar sound, that go beyond that into the realm of heavy metal. The mix of styles is a great and refreshing change. It might not have worked with another band, but in this case, Bobby and Phil and crew pulled it off.

When they came to the biker bar, we found out John Gavin couldn't make it so we saw the band without a keyboard player. They had a backup singer, can't remember her name, but she was with Lynrd Skynrd and survived the plane crash.

The day of the show, there was an ice storm and as I was coming in, this guy with super long hair was at the door as some other lady slipped and fell. He helped her up and we got to talking a little bit. That was Phil McCormick. A really nice guy.

The show was great. They played all the old songs and I wouldn't have been able to tell them from the old band, sound-wise. They sneaked in a few songs off the new album too.

After the show, I got to meet them all and Bobby was especially nice and surprised I had the new CD, as it had just come out.

There is not a bad song on the album. One song, the one by old drummer Mac Crawford, seems a little out of place, but not because it's a bad song. It might fit better on a different album. All these years later, I can still remember most of the cuts off that album, in order.

Since that show in the mid nineties, I've seen them three more times. This is a working band that everyone should appreciate. They are not only excellent musicians, but real people as well. Very down to earth and generous with the fans. They know who butters their bread!

If you want a great album, sort of southern rock, but a little heavier, this is an outstanding example. Highly recommended.

I was very plesantly surprised by this "new " Molly Hatchet.This CD rocks with good old southern rock style . While the chemistry of the original Molly Hatchet is missed Bobby Ingram has taken the torch and carried on with attention and respect to the Molly Hatchet sound .Phil McCormick sounds alot like Danny Joe Brown but the new songs belong to the new band members and they don't hold back on this CD . 2 songs in particular really shine , Devils Canyon and Journey have that Boogie no more guitar solos that make you want to "kick your chair out of the way "...Don't let the fact that the original members are no longer with Hatchet stop you from giving this CD a try will be glad there are new members still rockin on and producing top notch southern rock .For the record this is the best of the 3 new CD'S that this new version of Molly Htachet has done . Enjoy.

On DEVIL'S CANYON, Molly Hatchet carries on despite the loss of vocalist Danny Joe Brown, the last remaining original member, during the sessions for the album. Although the next four albums would be even better (especially WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW BRIDGE, which saw the return of original guitarist Dave Hlubek), this CD, despite a fair amount of filler, deserves five stars due to such great songs as "Tatanka", which details the plight of the Native American, and "The Journey", which asks the sort of questions that led me to hang up pictures of pretty actresses as a deterrent to self-indulgent behavior. The fact that surviving members of Molly Hatchet, both past (now playing in Gator Country) and present (including Hlubek) advocate sanctions against Indonesia in retaliation for that country's trumped-up 2005 drug-smuggling conviction of a young Australian tourist makes DEVIL'S CANYON an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.

I found this cd very entertaining and hard rocking southern style this one goes with the others of the first molly cd and flirting with disaster the sound on this cd shows the bands progression over the years which still remains in a good directions my favorite songs are rolling thunder which is a powerfull motorcycle tribute to our American soldiers which would make one get up and take action out of respect And heartless land which is a wake up call for all the things wrong in America and this is not in a complaining tone but written in an intelligent way thumps up for these southern boys

I lived by Danny Joe Brown in the early 80's and became a huge Hatchet fan. I still collect the music, still love southern rock.

DIFFERENT singer, guitarist(s), bassist, drummer, keyboard player...SAME NAME?

No band photo on the front OR back and NO band members names in sight = SMART MARKETING


The writers and performers that gave us Bounty Hunter, Whiskey Man, Gator Country, Flirtin' With Disaster...they do NOT appear here!

I hate to knock anybody for trying to carry on a "tradition", but hey, why not try and build a rep

of your own?

The album itself is OKAY, but that's about it.

You know something? I think I just answered my own question.
