Limited Booze Boys - 20 Years Fast And Loud
I am even more pleased to write this review for the release of "20 YEARS FAST AND LOUD", the new album of the German band (from Stradtroda) of Hardfolk Metal LIMITED BOOZE BOYS. They are, besides being now a major band of the Heavy-Metal scene, real friends since I had the pleasure and the honor to use, several years ago, one of their hits "Come Along" as part of the soundtrack for one of my main movies "Rose Castle".
Here come Koppi (guitar and vocals), Tom (vocals, keyboard and harmonica), Wanze (drums, vocals and mandolin) and Harti (bassguitar) having been replaced recently by Jakob, to present their new album (the fifth one) of twelve tracks, for more than forty minutes of duration, that did not leave me indifferent, far from it, explaining the score of 9.5 / 10 that I gave to this stuff.
"20 YEARS FAST AND LOUD" includes, besides his three great hits 'Life is a Pig' (a kind of great disco-rock), 'United' (amazing anthem rock Metal for the friendship of the bikers and the unit of Germany, which has nothing to envy to the immense 'Deutschland' of Rammstein) and 'Feelings' (superb ballad which speaks very subtly of the exclusive meaning of the feelings of love), some small jewels embellished with the powerful voices of Tom, Koppi and Wanze accompanied by the instruments which make the specificity of this very endearing German band (electric guitars and basses, accordion, bagpipe, mandolin, military drum).
Many of these songs have particularly impressed me and should remain in the minds of many fans and listeners, such as 'I Come From' (hymn to freedom on a bagpipe background), the very rhythmic, haunting and somehow desperate 'I Don't Know', the beautiful little romantic and a bit naughty pop-rock song 'Pretty Girl', 'Limited Booze Boys Song' (beautiful song of country-western style, played on the mandolin, which is a bit an introspection and a balance sheet of the band) and 'Rust' (this is the UFO of the album, a superb and unexpected tribute to the Beatles with a very surprising and very fast musical recovery of 'Yellow Submarine') 'Rust', which concludes the album, reminded me in its style and its rhythm 'Yankee Doodle', one hit of "Death Or Glory", a previous album of LBB.
Extremely rare if not unique, the order of the songs (with lyrics!) of the booklet does not match the cover back of the album ! A joke of this band who likes to surprise. In addition to these twelve excellent and various titles, the album contains a great video bonus : the original clip of 'Life is a Pig'.
LBB are performing a triumphal live tour for the release of their album "20 YEARS FAST AND LOUD" with planned dates from July to December, especially in Germany, like for example the Motorcycle Jamboree (Altes Lager - Jüterbog, on July 19th), the Rock & Bike Festival (Limberg, on August 9th), the Biker Party (Brandeburg, on August, 10th), the Privat Party (Landau, on September, 7th) and the Biker Party (Mülsen, on September 21th).Jul 06 2019
I have studied Law and received my Law Degree, and then worked as a radio station chronicler and multimedia products designer. I quickly knew that my passion for music, cinema and art in general would follow me all my life. Since 2000 I wrote, directed and edited several short horror films and music videos which had international awards. With my cultural association "Phoenix Management" I write reviews and interviews for bands that I like. I am glad to do this now for Brutal Resonance.
