Blues Rock Review - 24th June 2011 -
"Th3rds is the latest release from UK based blues rock group Devils Creek. Th3rds is the follow up to 2007's Bullfrog Blues and 2010's Working the Chains. Devils Creek consists of guitarist/singer, Guy Rosewall, bassist, Tim Chapple, and drummer, Alan Ibbotson.
Th3rds gets off to a rousing start with the driving "Prove Me Wrong," and continues with "You Won't Break." Both songs rock hard with a great groove and are the type that get your feet moving. The bands sound packs quite the punch and Rosewall's gritty vocals fit perfectly.
While Th3rds only features seven songs, there is enough here to wet your appetite for hard nosed blues rock. Devils Creek are highly influenced by Rory Gallagher and get the 70's type sound down well. Th3rds is a fun album from Devils Creek and highly recommended for any blues rock fan".

"Along with pasties and the A30,definitely the best thing to come out of Cornwall in a long time.." (Planet Rock Forum)
High octane rocking blues - a solid testament to the enduring power and influence of Blues Rock - especially the variety in which a wailing Fender Stratocaster comes front and centre.
Inspired by the classic guitar-driven blues rock of the late 60's and 70's, Cornish power trio Devils Creek are keeping alive the time honoured traditions first forged by greats such as Rory Gallagher, Ten Years After and Johnny Winter.
Formed in 2006, and fronted by maverick guitarist/vocalist Guy Rosewall, the band features a crack rhythm section in bassist Tim Chapple and drummer Alan Ibbotson.
The 2008 debut album “Bullfrog Blues” combined a classic approach with an attack favoured by heavy rock, particularly evident in the ultra heavy bass sound not normally heard in the genre. Featuring a hard driving electric version of Rory Gallagher's "Seven Days" which would surely make the late great Irish guitarist proud, the entire offering is a solid testament to the enduring power and influence of blues inflected rock.
2010 saw the release of the bands second album “Working the Chains”
The album received a good deal of airplay, including Rick Wakeman’s Planet Rock show.
