Based out of Essex, UK, Howling Black Soul are a powerhouse trio like they used to do. ‘Free’ meets ‘Black Sabbath’ with a 1972 valve amp thrown in for good measure. If dark resonant guitar sounds and blues influenced vocals are your thing, this is a quality offering – no fuss, and straight down the line. Featuring on vocals/guitar: Dario Gibelli, bass: Dave Collins, and drums: Lee Gibbs. The band initially sprang from a shared obsession for bands such as Led Zeppelin, Free, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath and other late 60’s/early 70’s music and the dark art of the blues specialists. They felt that this type of music was not being produced any more so decided to do something about it. Their sound is steeped in blues and maintains that retro groove of the late 60s/early 70s; however, they have managed to put their own spin on this classic genre and remain current offering something new.
