Thunder Fire album review from dutch metal webzine The Metal Resource

Before it got shortened to R&B, there was Rhythm and Blues. But instead of Beyoncé, you should be thinking along the lines of John Lee Hooker or the Allman Brothers. Rob Cassels says that he has been playing piano and guitar all his life. And that he cannot suppress the urge to write songs that express his gratitude for all that God has done through Christ.

Some of his earlier offerings were ‘Off the Wall’ (1984) and ‘Straight Shot’ (1988), with an anthology released in 2009. His latest endeavour ‘Thunder Fire’ (2012) sees Rob on lead vocals, piano, a 1968 Hammond organ, guitars, harmonica and percussion. He is joined by Sam Eakins (electric & acoustic guitar), Darrell Thompson (electric & acoustic bass) and Mark Childress (drums & percussion).

Now when you think of the blues, there are connotations of sad songs where a whiskey-soaked man relates how he lost his job, his wife left him and his dog has died. However, Rhythm & Blues takes the other side of the tracks and rejoices in the positive, life-affirming experiences.
