|Listen to Part 1...When I Fall|
Broken Nose reminds me of some heavy metal or hair metal bands that I'm not naturally drawn to. If I had to name names, I would pick Iron Maiden and Metallica, mixed with a little Nickelback in the lyrical department. The eight track CD is a bit of a tough listen for me, but if I was twenty years younger and considerably more angry and drunk (okay... just angry), I might really like screaming along with the first 7 tracks, and then crashing for the 8th tune which is the obligatory metal ballad track required to show that the band can actually play their instruments. And they can.
I can't say I fully appreciate the sharp guitar riffs or the big heavy metal vocals. I can't tell you that the super-fast machine gun drum fills didn't start to piss me off by the 4th track. And it would be incorrect for me to say that the lyrics are consistently interesting or relevant. But it is a completely fair and accurate statement to say that this Edmonton, Alberta based band is tight. On their latest CD of four, they push out fast, well-timed, powerhouse metal on a CD that sounds professionally produced. If you like whiskey inspired, sweat-driven, head-banging metal, you should give this band a listen.
