The music of the trio is steeped in the traditional and the modern, the rough and the urban. It is useless to try and make comparisons; with Hell's Kitchen, nothing is that simple... just listen to the audacity of the instruments. Firstly... the hammering evokes the tools of mother Courage-Washboard, an assortment of bin lids, multiple springs and enormous tom drum- bringing to us the whole range of urban syncopation. The upright bass throbs and zigzags like a fish on acid while the guitars sizzle with an energy that would make even the dead swing.
But the songs of Hell's Kitchen are not only a gift to tempt one into their furnace. They will also drag you screaming along their road to hell... listen to the bottleneck, the car skidding, the inspired cacophony! The music is suffused with originality: the voice snarls, squeals and sings like the devils own. Look for it... it hides; ignore it, it surprises you. And in all of this, no calculation, nothing from the school books. Hell's Kitchen abhor the graph paper and the music stand, creative disorder is what rules the day.
In short, if you missed the devil passing by, come into Hell's kitchen and feel the heat!
What the press says
"This is young, for the now and I love it! 'My House' is a fantastic opener to a very fulfilling album..."
"...Doctor's Oven is at the same time rough and exciting, convulsif and tempting, seizing, dishevelling, impressive: a true revelation... Hell's Kitchen strikes very hard with its second album which should strengthen its growing scenic reputation..."
Rock & Folk
"...The trio from Geneva has just carried out a monstrous, monumental album..."
"...Madly attaching and excitingly paradoxical... the power of the opus rests in a diabolic inventiveness... It is crippled, it is so beautiful..."
"...Excellent and bewitching second album... They have nothing to envy neither in terms of richness of the harmonies nor in the field of the unslung creativity..."
"...This new delivery is properly exciting... The result is delicately blended, and at the same time wild, pure-bred..."
"...It is exhilarating as a bottle of 30 year old single malt..."
Tribune de Genève
"...This Hell's Kitchen holds all its promises... Tasty stew mixing Tom Waits, Soul Coughing and 16 Horsepower... No indigestion in this infernal kitchen..."
