Bloody Good Horror Reviews ‘Careful With That Axe’

Careful with that Axe

With just two days to go until John 5’s eight studio album, ‘Careful With That Axe‘ is released on digital music sites (with a physical release expected in the next couple of months), you may want to get a taste of what others are now saying, having had a chance to review the album.

Bloody Good Horror are one of the first to submit their review and here is is for you to read – incase you’re still trying to make your mind up; “The virtuosity and versatility of John 5 is the subtext of the record and the decision to put melody first is a great one. “Careful With That Axe” is a guitar album, yes, but a highly enjoyable one and an easy recommendation for fans of just about anything.”
