Battle Bratt - Forged in Steel Review

back to reviews

Artist: Battle Bratt

Album: Forged in Steel

Released: 2007

A mixture of styles and genres: Alternative Nu Modern Metal


When starting to review some particular thing it's very tempting to escape any comparison - this makes the review, let's say, clearer. But it's enough hard. But let's see what we can work out here. In front of lies brand new CD of Americans called Battle Bratt. Those guys appeared from nowhere in mid eighties with two demo-tapes and one full-length album. Well, the music was kind of fashion that time - easy listening Hard-Rock originating from America. The band didn't get the overwhelming success and disappeared for almost 20 years. So, this record is fresh wine from Battle Brat. From the first moments it really fells that bands changed. Changed a lot. Changed totally. It couldn't be the other way. "Forged in Steel" represents the modern America as it is - mixed, different, brutal. Alternative funk rhythms in Ill Nino style make the atmosphere even more psychedelic which gains extra points to the guys, trying to sound as the modern band. They do, indeed, although there's maybe lack of aggression in riffs, but this might be the matter of age. There are not hits, there are no bad songs, the album is listening in one breath. One song stands out of the row - "All That Remains", kind of dancing Rock song with extremely catchy rhythm and melody. With those experiments the band tried in "Forged In Steel" they reminded me Bruce Dickinson with his "Skunkworks" album full of new moves and musical tricks, which became his best album up to date. So, if the band takes this direction, drop down the guitars, keep the rhythm and... jump! Nice work!
