Album- Specter at the Feast
By Philip Moreno
Rating 8.75 out of 10
Oh, BRMC, where have you been? Three years ago you released the great “Beat the Devils Tattoo and in indie time three years is an eternity. Then we started hearing rumors and whispers that a new album would be coming, and boy have the guys delivered.
Longtime fans will welcome the slow build the album has with songs like the opener “Fire Walker” turning into the great second track “Let the Day Begin”. The record sounds like classic BRMC. The uptempo rockers like “Rival” and “Teenage Disease” are going to sound great in their live sets next to classics like “Punk Rock-Whatever Happened…” and “Weapon of choice”
“Specter at the Feast” breaths as an album. It pulses and lives in your speakers. I have a feeling it will be living in those speakers for a while. A great addition to the bands already legendary catalog of albums. This rates up there with 2013’s best albums which includes both the Foxogen and Ryhe albums.
Buy the album already and see them live in Detroit in May, hopefully they will swing back thru western Michigan later this year…
