Brother Firetribe: Live at the Apollo

AOR/Melodic Hard Rock
Rating: 4.5/5.0

I can name about 20 bands that were influential in bringing me back to the music scene in the last seven years. And the handful that pushed me to start Dangerdog Music Reviews in 2006. One significant band was Finland's Brother Firetribe and their debut disc False Metal. That marvelous album blew me away, and I cranked it out routinely from my car speakers. I also imagined that they would be an explosive live band. So with Live at the Apollo coming I was duly excited.

Though it may not go down in the annals of rock music history as a defining live album, Live at the Apollo is a stirring showcase for Brother Fire's intensely infectious melodic hard rock. The recording is crisp and clear, the crowd enthusiastic. Firetribe covers a generous selection of songs covering their two studio albums. All the songs are spirited renditions of the originals, filled with energy. My personal favorites include Runaways, One Single Breath, Play It from the Heart, Break Out, and I'm On Fire. You're treated to Nightwish vocalist Anette Olzon on the Firetribe classic Heart Full of Fire. Live at the Apollo displays Brother Firetribe in their most energetic context: live and loud delivering great melodic rock to an enthusiastic crowd. Strongly recommended.

NOTE: Live at the Apollo comes on both CD and DVD. However, the DVD is only in PAL format (for now); tough luck for us Americans.

I'll be honest at the start. I don't get the fascination some people have with H.P. Lovecraft. Attempting to read his stories, I've never been able to finish one. He's simply too verbose, the very definition of literary hyperbole, using every adjective or adverb in the English language to describe some thing or emotion. Or as the late ... [ Read More ]
