Rooted in the Blues with some nasty stank swamp funk. It's eclectic rock n roll with a shot of adrenaline and a nod to the past.
THE MAGIC LIGHTNIN' BOYS RELEASE STEALIN' THUNDER (Cincinnati, OH) Ohio swamp rock masters The Magic Lightnin’ Boys released their sophomore album titled "Stealin' Thunder" through Bottled Lightnin’ Records on May 6th 2016. The thirteen song affair is an album which successfully reveals the evolution of the band from Swamp-Rockers to a more refined Blues-Rock-Behemoth. The compilation crosses over several musical genres yet in a most tasteful manner. The Boy’s have managed to create a stylistic recipe that includes blues, country, soul, rock, R&B, funk and a touch of gospel. The secret recipe to the album involves recording with a live gritty style in order to represent the sound of a live performance. From the initial wails of the lead track "Nan’s Poem" to the final roar of "N2U", Stealin’ Thunder packs a rustic splendor which is rarely heard in today’s modern form of music. The album follows The Magic Lightnin’ Boys self titled album from 2015 which hosts a similar collection of work. Stealing’ Thunder was produced by the band under their label Bottled Lightnin’ Records, mixed by Dave Cornett at 3rd Street Music in Hamilton, OH and mastered by Brian Lucey at Magic Garden Mastering, grammy award winning engineer responsible for mastering artists such as The Black Keys and The Arctic Monkeys. The Magic Lightnin' Boys will support the release with select dates throughout the United States' Mid-Atlantic Region.
