Brand New Sin - Recipe For Disaster (Century Media) - Back
Opening with a can o' beer, Brand New Sin’s sophomore release is a stunning plethora of Hard Rock fixations! Joe, Kenny, Kris, Chuck and Kevin are seemingly out to destroy the boundaries between Rock and Metal with this "Recipe For Disaster". The album features 13 ::brand new:: tracks, a video clip of "Black and Blue", and around 45 minutes playing time. Compared mostly to bands like COC and Motörhead, BNS are indeed that and more. More like a more Southern Rock version of Pantera (like- Down)! Every track on this thing is catchy and as refined as the aforementioned bands. These guys have been together for a little while, but not quite as long as it sounds on disc. Very sophisticated riffing, formidable choruses, and perfect drumwork for the style. BNS are not only Syracuse's brightest light in metal, in general, they are probably one of the brightest newcomers in metal throughout the planet Earth. Many hails for the new Rock n Brawl style! Definitely in league with Black Label Society, COC, and Down. Cheers!
