This is an update single review of their recently released single " Blacked out", while you reading their new single review, there is an option to read my previous single review about " Backseat Lover" which was the first official studio single release by hard rock band Black Bone Nation. Produced and recorded at Sean Manley studios (Johannesburg - South Africa) with the legendary South African Producer/Recording Engineer Sean Manley. Available on all major digital outlets and available as a hard copy for purchase.

Zakk Styles (Vocals & Guitars) took a leap of faith in 2016 to leave the mundane, corporate world behind in order to follow his life-long passion and calling for music in the coastal City of Cape Town, South Africa. Shorty after this drastic life change, he and a few fellow friends formed a cover band (Emerald Dream 2015 - 2016) with the hopes of entering the local gig scene.

The cover trio quickly made the choice to form their own band due to the number of original material being written. Shortly thereafter, yet another life-altering decision was made by Zakk to relocate to Johannesburg, South Africa, due to the music industry demands, and so bringing the Black Bone Nation name and image along with him.

Soon after he started his new life in the city of Gold, Quinten Grib (Drums) answered the calling to audition as the new drummer in Black Bone Nation and secured the spot within playing the first song. Joining the ranks in 2016 is Brendan Forer (Lead Guitars), hailing from a classic rock n roll background and bringing with to the THENATION his arsenal of blues licks and groovy riffs, shaping their sound that it is today.

The trio has created an unstoppable hard rock whiskey-fueled machine and continues to record and tour in South Africa. The band’s influences have since oozed 80’s and 90's Rock legends including; Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Guns n Roses to new age and current artists such as Rival Sons and Heaven's Basement. 

While drawing inspiration from the past and present, the duo created a sound unique to themselves... With a balance between good old school Rock ‘n Roll, and heart chilled blues for those hangover days. With classic and well thought out, yet light lyrics, the band successfully created their own signature sound. Black Bone Nation is currently working in and out of the studio on their self-titled EP Album  Black Bone Nation, grinding hard in order to break into the local music scene in 2017 and contributing to being a part of the heart of the South African music community.

A pinch of salt and a shot of whiskey is all you need to join the Black Bone Nation!


New single Review: 

This band is already reviewed before, as you can read underneath. But they recently released a new single " Blacked out" and so I going to write about their newest release. I loved all their previous singles before, it is amazing rock from South Africa. So I am very curious to this new release, The intro starts with great heavy riffs of a guitar, then his high rock vocal. The song has a nice rhythm, great rock tunes and the stunning solo of the electric guitar is very cool. Although his voice seems to be overruled by the amazing hard rock sound, it sounds lovely. This is a great rock single, it has all elements the sound, the lyrics the rhythms. I am sure many rock enthusiasts, radio stations and other music related in this field would love this new single. Have a listen yourself, and share their great rock music and or review around the globe. 



Old single review:

This is Black bone Nation from South Africa, they have finally released their official debut single “Backseat Lover. Zakk Styles, the versatile artist is with his cover band LZ addiction, as well on Chatsong. And I wrote earlier a review about Black Bone Nation and their demo songs, which were already very awesome to listen and it was really new music alert in the rock genre. Then now back to their first official single. The song starts with an awesome guitar intro, defines immediately in which genre they make music in. Wow, Zakk has really an awesome vocal sound, there is no note he cannot sing. I am very impressed, their first official single is amazingly produced. This is really good rock and is high-quality music. I knew they were very talented but with this single, they outdid themselves even more. These artists and their new single have to be heard around the world by major music networks and radio stations. Therefore share this single review as much as you can and give comments and votes underneath this review.
