Rock Ain’t Dead by Robbie Rapids: Review
Rock isn’t dead folks, it just got revived by Robbie Rapids. With heavy guitar riffs, electrifying solos, and a powerful voice to command each instrument, arrives fierce track entitled “Rock Ain’t Dead”. Robbie Rapids, surely channeled his inner beast to showcase the true spirit of rock and roll with this track. It brings a sense of nostalgia for me, as the sounds are reminiscent of the early days of rock and roll.
Dark crowded concert halls, a couple of good friends all joined together head banging, and the incoming sound of large audio systems making your ears nearly deaf, ahh those were the true days of freedom! Thus, “Rock Ain’t Dead” truly pays a tribute to the soul of classic rock with beating drums, thumping bass, and strong guitar licks. About the guitar arrangements… It’s got a moody technique. When not playing riffs, it’s playing softer-less distorted notes during the vocal sections. And the guitar solos shred their way to the top, just melting the faces of an audience all the while.
Robbie Rapids is a singer, and guitarist from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He entered the music industry at the age of 16. According to the artist, the track “Rock Ain’t Dead” is about his love for the 1980s and 1990s Hard Rock, Glam Rock, and Metal scenes. This song is an attempt to reflect the radical transformation that has taken place in the rock music industry since Robbie, or in fact, since all of us, rock warriors were youngins.
