Behold the birth of “GRIT” Rock. Behold the birth of “THE BLACK RIFLES.”
The Black Rifles are a Hard Hitting, Raw, Unapologetic GRIT Rock 3-piece band hailing from (Broxbourne, UK). 2 guitars and drums.
They just press the “record” button and off they go, creating the songs on the spot by letting the words and music flow. And their ”Mold-Breaking freestyle method of songwriting has had some impressive results.” The result of mainlining their creative thoughts straight onto mixing tapes is their Debut Album “GRIT”, a collection of moments in time captured forever. The result is a record buzzing with raw energy.
“We wanted to capture our real, raw sound and attitude to bring a new fresh feel and idea to Rock Music. We call it – GRIT” – The Black Rifles
