The Rods - Brotherhood Of Metal Music Review

The Rods: Brotherhood Of Metal

Heavy Metal
5.0/5.0

It's a good day for heavy metal, for metal fans everywhere. Legendary American heavy metal band The Rods return with their second studio, Brotherhood Of Metal, since their resurrection in 2010. The cover art work may look familiar to their fans. It finds inspiration from 1982's Wild Dogs, one of the band's most popular albums.

The Rods

A quintessential power trio, The Rods offer fans more of their traditional heavy metal featuring sharp riffs and ripping guitar solos over the gallop and groove of a steady rhythm section. Groove has always been an essential to The Rods sound giving you more heavy metal rock. You'll hear that across the album, including Everybody's Rockin', Smoke On The Horizon, and The Devil Made Me Do It. But the real kicker is the heavy metal rocker, Party All Night, which has a strong bass line and drum groove, and a roaring catchy chorus. Louder Than Loud finds The Rods taking their heavy metal rock and turning it into an arena anthem. With Hell On Earth and 1982, The Rods can also drop some speed into their tunes for some power metal groove. Alternatively, there's simply some classic and traditional heavy metal tunes with Tyrant King, the foreboding Evil In Me, and Brotherhood Of Metal, with its stirring piano intro. All in all, Brotherhood Of Metal finds The Rods in excellent form, delivering entertaining and fist pumping classic American heavy metal. Get it. Quite recommended.
