AllMusic Review by

Blitz & Donner, the third solo effort by ex-Böhse Onkelz guitarist Matt Roehr, moves away from the blues-based hard rock of his sophomore album (2010's Out of the Great Depression) and delves into Onkelz-inspired punk. Roehr's band includes Ferdy Doernberg (Rough Silk) and drummer Michael Ehré (Firewind), with Roehr himself handling the guitars, bass, and singing in a style reminiscent of Onkelz frontman Kevin Russell. While Roehr's first two solo albums featured English lyrics, the songs on Blitz & Donner are in German, increasing the similarity to Roehr's work with his previous band.
