With "Black Dog Barking" Airbourne continue the tradition of Aussie legends like Rose Tattoo, AC/DC, The Angels or The Poor with proudly swelling breasts. The Australian snot-nosed brats are also banging their way through the boxes with their third album in a damn casual and cheeky manner, whereby the energy level is more reminiscent of the lively debut "Running Wild" (2007) than of the somewhat more calculated predecessor "No Guts: No Glory" (2010). "Black Dog Barking" smells like the sweat of thousands and thousands of tour kilometers, hundreds of energetic shows and just as many beery aftershow parties in spite of fat production. The tiresome topic of independence should not be deepened this time either, because in this genre feeling MUST win over innovation. The ten direct hits on "Black Dog Barking" prove it: You can't play RockʼnʼRoll more intense and infectious than Airbourne. In the Limited Edition "Black Dog Barking" starts with three convincing bonus tracks as well as the rough produced live CD from the Wacken-Gig 2011. One thing is certain: Airbourne will continue to be damn biting and "hungry" in 2013.
