Marcel H. : Damn, how cheerful a man can become through music such as this. Black Space Riders manage to evoke one big smile on my face even though the band has almost nothing to do with metal anymore. One can discern a lot of old wave influences and alternative rock influences in the sound but a bit heavier.. Here and there the band reminds me of Tool and then again at times Life Of Agony and then U2 (when the band was still fun) and then Eighties wave bands (but always on a hard rock foundation). Before you know it you’re singing along to it and you’re dancing the night away.
