Bulletproof Rose - Loud Hard Fast EP CD Album Review

Bulletproof Rose: Loud Hard Fast (EP)

Hard Rock
4.0/5.0

Here's another band of youngsters who have been raiding their parents' record collection, mostly the albums from the late Eighties. Hailing from the UK, Bulletproof Rose launches their debut EP Loud Hard Fast by channeling a combination of AC/DC and Guns N Roses hard rock.

The album has both a raw and rowdy sound as Bulletproof Rose easily blends heavy metal into their hard rock groove. Riffs are large, leads spry and fiery, making this another example of a guitar-oriented oriented album. Alternatively, with the title cut, the attitude in vocalist Jacob Siddle's voice combined with the urgency of the pace, the band steals some vibe from punk rock. But most punk bands can't rip off riffs and leads like Siddle and cohort Brian Robinson do with effortless ease. This song is another lead guitar monster from the midpoint breakdown to the end. But ultimately I think Bulletproof Rose simply wants to be heavy metal rockers, throwing down balls to the wall, blow up you stereo, metal rockers, and Bang Your Head is their call to arms. In this sense, this foursome isn't doing anything novel or reinventing the wheel. They're just giving us great classic guitar-driven hard rock for the current generation. Good stuff and recommended.
