Black Top combines the sounds of ZZ-Top and ACDC in one over the top blues rock trio. With their new album ‘Cherry picking’, you can experience their catchy original songs, rocking grooves and steaming solos. All proving, yet again, they’re an unstoppable blues rock machine.
Their third album ‘Cherry picking’ contains fourteen new songs and three songs previously released as the EP ‘Pay my Dues’. The songs were written by singer/bass player Anne-Maarten ‘Hills’ van Heuvelen, guitar player Elmer Meijers and drummer Rogier Berben in the gritty basement of an old villa near Dresden (GE). The resulting compositions were inspired by those rough surroundings. To create a live feel, all songs were recorded without the use of a metronome, which authentically recreates the feel and atmosphere of the band performing live on stage - energetic, fresh and rocking!
Most current blues rock bands, such as The Black Keys, have a sound similar to blues bands from the sixties. But this Dutch-based band has its roots in blues rock from the seventies and eighties, like ACDC and ZZ-Top (think their hit album ‘Eliminator’). Black Top even went as far as to use ZZ Top inspired synthesizer sounds on their new ‘Cherry picking’ album.
Black Top has played from Rotterdam to Prague and everywhere in between. Check out their steaming, rockin’ live shows when they come to a city near you!
