Preview/Review Of The Album “Bangers” By Barn Burner
Les Boys Live. Originally published 12/15/09
I have been meaning to do a review of this album for a little bit, when I heard that they where re-releasing it I thought I might wait. After seeing them live this week though I felt compelled to do a review/preview to let people know what they were missing or waiting for.
The Debut release of the album “Bangers” by the Montreal sensation Barn Burner sees the reemergence of two guitar anthem party rock. Long gone are the spandex and teased hair that plagued the genera in the eighties and in its place are hard hitting beats with dueling guitars, running bass lines, great hooks and ROCKING Riffs and thunderous sounds at light breaking speeds. Technically sound these guys use their competence with their instruments and their knowledge of music to create a compelling, thick, full sound that gets you off your ass and into motion. The high energy of this album is ideal for working out, getting ready to go out on a Friday night or hopping in the van with three of you closest friends for a road trip you won’t soon forget. What you won’t find here is a politically based lyrics that make you wonder how you can help change your world, what you will find is an awesome soundtrack that will enhance any festivities or party you may find yourself attending.
With song titles such as Beer Today Bong Tomorrow, Brohemoth, Fast Women and Running Reds, you may find yourself driving at high speeds cracking a brew with your best friends and favorite Ladies while burning through stop signs in total disregard for your safety. (This is all metaphorical as I am sure they do not nor do I condone driving inebriated).Having recently signed with Metal Blade Records the plan is to re-release the album with extra tracks in February. I have yet to recognize any of the new songs, seeing them live recently these guys are writing up a storm of good work though. Currently the album is available on I-tunes, Cd and on LP and if your one of them kids into downloading albums (legally or illegally) I seriously suggest you get in contact with the band for a copy of the LP as I am sure it will be a limited edition collectors item after the album is re re-release,and it is essential to hear this album from beginning to end as it was recorded.
In closing there are no guarantees in life, with this release in your soundtrack though GOOD TIMES are guaranteed. Party on Boys.
