No this is not a black metal band, the Chicago based Bible of the devil is more of a straight ahead rocknroll band with traces of NWOBHM. They debuted with "Firewater at my command" in 2002 and has released 5 more albums with "For the love of thugs and fools" as the latest one, this record sounds very honest with a live sounding production even if it´s quite obviously a low budget thing we´re talking about here. They write decent songs but the album lack a bit of heaviness, the Thin Lizzy-like "Anytime" is one of few highlights along with the opener "Sexual overture/Away" that bring thoughts to D.A.D. Other bands that comes in mind while listening to "For the love of thugs and fools" are, More and Tank. I guess Bible of the devil feel more at home on stage.
