BLISTER BRIGADE – To Serve And Punish (CD)
This is another band I discovered at the excellent Rock Out Wild festival in Sweden. Blister Brigade made a great live impression with their energetic, bluesy, sleazy and slightly southern rawk oriented ballsy hard rock. Actually, that’s exactly what you get on “To Serve And Punish”, a big dose of biker infused ballsy hard rock! The singer reminds me a bit of Ola of The Killbilly 5’ers, which is really good in my book! Blister Brigade should appeal to fans of bands like Swedish colleagues Rebel Road and The Killbilly 5’ers as well as bands like Texas Hippie Coalition and classic eighties sleaze. Fat and nice production, great playing and catchy songs make a great combination!
