Album Review By JD Rich

Hello Rock brothers and sisters! We’re taking a musical ride to England for the fourth studio album from Inglorious, We Will Ride. So buckle up, speed limits be damned!

This band took some risks to bring this album to life during their Covid-19 lockdown, which by what I hear was way more restrictive (and consistent) than what we here in the U.S. experienced. Apparently, the contemporary definition of Rock rebellion is not so much about sex, drugs, and rock and roll anymore. Those are grandpappy notions these days. If Inglorious is any indication, bucking authority consists of putting yourself at risk by going out anywhere...especially to record an album. Not only is that devotion to music, but it’s also a mind-blowing example of how sharply times have changed. I will note that reassurances were mentioned that social distancing and all other fun protocols were adhered to. The rocker in me applauds their determination, while the wuss in me winces at the thought of being around other people in a confined space.

Nevertheless, Inglorious followed through on the promise that We Will Ride, and ride they certainly do. It was a long road to travel, but they arrived at their destination with a loaded EP jammed with familiar flavors of Hard Rock from the 80s to the present day, all woven together throughout each song. Vocalist Nathan James is at the wheel, shifting between similarities of Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), David Coverdale (Whitesnake), and to a lesser extent, a pissed-off Paul Stanley (KISS). His range is vast while sounding completely effortless when reaching the more difficult octaves.​

We Will Ride sees the arrival of a few new members to the lineup: bassist Vinnie Colla and guitarists Danny De La Cruz and Dan Stevens. (There must have been a deal on guitarists named Dan that day). This new trio adeptly fits in with the original duo, Nathan and drummer Phil Beaver. Five elements organically mesh together, creating a thick, full sound that embodies the soul of Hard Rock.​

Inglorious’ new material is comfort food for those who feast on a multitude of moods and cadences. From a wild boys-night-out to the crushing realization of loss, and every point in between. Lyrics are straightforward, and accompanying instruments emphasize each message like wordless narratives propelling it all with vicious and precise direction.

Don’t let the name fool you. Inglorious is anything but shameful or disgraceful. These five musicians are Hard Rock disguised as humans. Only a noob would dismiss them as just another Rock band from the U.K. They have to up their game because of where they come from. Look at all the Hard Rock legends that left some huge platform boots to fill: Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, The Who, Led fucking Zeppelin! Yeah, the list goes on to infinity, but you don’t need me to write out a laundry list. Suffice it to say, Inglorious sounds well aware of their predecessors and the unspoken criteria that Hard Rock bands are held to, and they are well on their way. It won’t be easy, it never is. But these Brits have the experience, the talent, and the innate drive to get them there, and We Will Ride with them.
