Blues From Hell – The Legend of the Courageous Five is the new album from blues rock machine Stray Train. The Slovenian band have been grabbing our attention over the past few years at various European Festivals and just last week with the release of their debut video ‘Heading for the Sun’.
Vocalist Luka Lamut tells us: “We began writing songs for Blues From Hell -The Legend of the Courageous Five right after we finished our first album. New ideas just seemed to burst out of us in the most natural way – just the five of us in the rehearsal room – which is something we believe not too many bands have these days.”
The bands last album Monkey was described by RAMzine as defiant and bold Blues Rock and Blues From Hell follows that same lead. Luka continues: “Blues from Hell stands for everything that we are; as a band and each and every one of us individually. It tells stories of our lives…What makes us happy, sad and what makes us angry. The Legend of the Courageous Five, on the other hand, stands for the guts it takes to do your own thing no matter what others say. In our case this means going out as many nights as possible and rock the crowd like there is no tomorrow!”

Talking of the bands chemistry on the record Luka says: “Blues From Hell – The Legend of the Courageous Five is different from our first album. It is more focused and straight to the point, while at the same time it is more variable. We knew exactly what we want and where to go with this record. There were no shortcuts. And the main reason for this is that we got to know each other much better during these two years and a lot has happened to us. We became really good friends – and the chemistry can be felt on the record as well. This is something no money can buy!”
Blues From Hell will be released via SAOL on November 24th and available as CD, double vinyl and digital download.
