A whiplash into the the best of the 70s
The Decadent Session is a pumping resolute into the 1970s. you get very cool music delivered in a kind of heavy rock vein very close to the likes of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Mournin, Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, Lucifers Friend and Uriah Heep and the likes. Guitar riffs and solos are extra special and the drums has got a tight relentless groove above anything else and the singer wails upon it all... it's a nice welcomed backlash into the age where the music was real and the spectators where listening... unlike later eras where the bands had to relinquish themselves... Very much desireable and worthwhile music for anyone... I think this band has alot to give in the future...
This is how Rock was meant to be played, as opposed to the crap that’s popular today. The Grand trick encompasses the sound of a heavier Blood, Sweat, and Tears with vocals in the mold of David Clayton-Thomas. The guitar work is bluesy and at times reminds me of Jethro Tull sans flute. The riffs are simple yet catchy, with hooks galore and the choruses will just attach themselves to your brain and not let go.

When nothing other than crunchy 70's hard rock will do, The Grand Trick is here to deliver it, as good as it gets. With the classic guitar riffs and wailing solos twisted around by bally vocals, not to mention those keyboards in the stratosphere, 'The Decadent Session" piles on nine tracks of glorious rock'n'roll, not too distant from the glory of Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, and Rainbow. Open wide, this one is a big bite.
