Badmotorfinger: Heroes EP

Heavy Rock/Metal
3.0/5.0

Apparently titling their first album It's Not The End was a bit of foreshadowing for Italy's Badmotorfinger. They return this year with a new EP, Heroes, a mixed bag of six songs.

Also, apparently, in the last three years, Badmotorfinger's creative juices could only produce three new songs: Hidden Heroes, Needle In My Vein, and Badmotorfinger. These songs are a continuation of the band's crossover heavy rock and metal, kind of metalized early Nineties grunge (ergo the Soundgarden reference). Hidden Heroes sounds suspiciously like a Metallica song, if that iconic band drifted more towards heavy rock. The namesake song, Badmotorfinger, is probably the best song here. Essentially, it's a heavy rock song with lots of groove, big riffs, and a good melody.

The other three are lifted from their debut album. There's a new version of No Second Chance. What the difference is, I couldn't tell you as I don't remember that album after three years and nearly 1,000 reviews in between. It's a fast heavy rocker with a fine guitar solo. The last two songs are acoustic versions of Afterlife and Rebel. I'm guessing, in the past three years, there's been times when Badmotorfinger had to adapt to a venue and do an acoustic set. Suffice to say, they also sound fine, if anything having a lot of energy, especially Rebel.

In the end, I'm rather ambivalent about Heroes. The band had three years to work, surely they could have given us a new full-length album. Nevertheless, if you're a fan of Badmotorfinger, I can recommend Heroes for your heavy metal rock consumption.
