Gun – “Break The Silence”

Gun – “Break The Silence” (earMusic)

14 years since they split, Scottish rockers Gun have indeed broken the silence with this comeback album! Gun formed in the late 80s and their brand of mainstream rock saw them land support slots to giants like The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard before making it themselves and winning a plethora of awards along with a Top 40 single in ‘Word Up’! Following that, the band took a break only to make an ill timed return to coincide with the Dunblane gun massacre, prompting both name as well as personnel changes. The follow up album, “0141 632 6326” did not fair so well and led to the inevitable split. Since then, the band have being playing one off shows with revolving door line ups including the likes of Tony Jepson on vocals. Today, still with the Gizzi brothers on vocals and guitar, Gun are back and pretty much in the same vein of commercial rock that could very much fill the niche left by the likes of Thunder. Jools’s guitar still has that fire n soul and Dante’s voice is still in magic shape on songs like ‘Bad Things’, ‘Butcher Man’ and ‘Running Out Of Time’ that sees Gun reloaded and cocked to rock for a second round.
