"TO SERVE AND PUNISH"
BLISTER BRIGADE is a Hard Rock / Heavy Metal band hailing from Sweden that
formed back in 2010. They kind of have that old school Heavy Metal sound that was very
popular in the mid to late '80's. They also have that Hard Rock vibe that was dominate in
Europe in the '70's. I like the fast paced and up beat sound the guitars and drums have. I
kept thinking of bands that were around the L.A. strip and playing in all the clubs back
then. The vocals also have that gritty Hard Rock / Heavy Metal sound that reminds me of
bar room bands of the late '70's and early '80's. Two bands that kept coming to mind for me
after listening to them was FASTER PUSSYCAT & L.A. GUNS, which were two
amazing bands that I loved growing up in the '80's. They had that Glam Metal vibe, but
were a bit rougher and dirtier sounding, plus they were better musicians than most of the
bands they got lumped in with. If you add in a little bit of DANGEROUS TOYS &
BANG TANGO, with some slight touches of CINDERELLA. To round out their sound I
would say add the heaviness and dirty attitude of MOTORHEAD, GUNS N ROSES &
SKID ROW and you'd get a pretty decent idea of what BLISTER BRIGADE has to offer.
I grew up with all these bands so I of course was digging "TO SERVE AND PUNISH" a
lot. These guys have brought old school Metal back to the masses and I hope they keep
bringing it! One amazing album from beginning to end!
