one of the most anticipated albums has finally been released. ‘Here
comes the Brides’ the title, The Brides of Destruction the band.
The formation of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and La Guns guitarist
Tracii Guns, drummer Scot Coogan and London LeGrand on vocals have put
together an album of pure class. In this age of manufactured bands it is
a joy to see four talented musicians together and doing what they do
The opening track ‘Shut the F**k Up’ is a great example of this.
Tracii Guns guitars can’t be faulted, throughout the album he plays
with true gusto and with a raw passion not heard since ‘Cocked and
Loaded’. The vocals of London LeGrand fit the style of the song
superbly a great find and a star in the making. ‘I Don’t Care’
keeps the sleaze train rolling full steam ahead.
‘I Got a Gun’ has some message behind it but who cares, just listen
to the sheer passion that LeGrand puts into the vocals as he screams out
the chorus. He may not have the best of voices in rock but he has more
zeal than most of the new breed vocalists around today.
‘2x Dead’ once again delivers the goods with Tracii Guns doing
overtime on guitar. ‘Brace Yourself’ is a gem of a track that is
just rises up and kicks you in the teeth and you don’t care. But this
is only the prelude to my favourite track on the album ‘Natural Born
Killers’ that will make you sit up and take note.
‘Life’ sees the band go into a more thought provoking mode but still
has that edge that is very Manic Street Preachers. ‘Revolution’ is
more anthemic but still keeping that raw guitar sound, the final track
slows things down, ‘Only Get So Far’ is a fitting end and shows the
band in reflective mood.
Although only a total of nine tracks there isn’t a bad track on the
album and the question is was it worth the wait my answer most
definitely yes let’s hope it wont be long till we get a visit to these
shores so we can so our appreciation for such a fine album
