This time the theme is around movies and so it explodes right in your face before pushing the level to 11 and get a blast. the album title is truly what describes the band best. They are creating tunes mixing all influences we grew up with for those who are the same age.. and is right on to blow your mind and love the band.
The power and heavy sound from Black Sabbath, the speed and raw style from Motorhead, the solos of John Sykes from Thin Lizzy and a mix of all the seventies and eighties Metal tunes combined to explose your senses. If that is not talking to you then you can die!
So if you haven’t heard yet of this powerful band then you should get a fix and fall in love with Born Again right away! For all lovers of comic books and movies here is a blast :
Nine songs with the tenth being like an outro with movie sample, and the eleventh one the radio edit from this amazing song called “Ghost Rider” which is with no doubt a single hit! “No guts No Glory” is sending you right into the blasting riffs the band is known for, and you are on a ride for pleasure. “Never Give up” is an explosion of feelings and “Lost in Time” is slowing down cos you pushed the break pedal to stop the bike.
Well conceived and all the song in a special order setting the album a great vibe , although some songs lack of lyrics but it is my only thought. The composition is made for you to enjoy the ride and get the songs stuck in your mind like the best bands did before.
Born Again , is here to stay and will become a strong band in the French scene for sure. “You Can’t Stop Rock N Roll” a Twisted Sister cover in the heavier tune on the edge of Thrash Metal style kick your butt and song such as “Children of The Storm” gives you the indication that the band is respecting the gods of Heavy Metal so get that album now 98/100.
