Formed in the mid-eighties, this band has done extensive club touring along the Eastern seaboard. They are an original band who started out as speed metal in the early eighties, but after hearing this album it is very hard to believe. They have a decidely 'dated' sound, yet one that is timeless; in short, this is a band that you must listen to to appreciate. Smooth vocals, screaming guitars riffs, and lyrics that speak of sex, drugs, and rock n roll tempered with the occasional ballad. Make no mistake, despite being on a German label this is an all American band. However, it cannot be left unsaid that these guys do have an unmistakable and familiar sound to them. Dare I say they sound alarmingly like Whitesnake, Europe, White Lion, etc.?? Yes, I do because it's true and just a glance at the titles will confirm it. with titles like 'Heat of the Night', 'Winds of Change', and 'Rock n' Roll Sin' it becomes obvious who their influences are and while they LOOK like songs of other bands, they bear no musical resemblance to them. Clever marketing? Maybe, but they still maintain that they are NOT a cover band. Battle Bratt has been many years in the making by their own confession but are worth the wait to us hair junkies. So, for fans of eighties sounding metal--White Lion, Whitesnake, or 'power ballads'--check out Battle Bratt.
