Reviewer: Robert Williams
Brute Forcz is an eighties inspired traditional heavy metal band hailing from Los Angeles, California whose just issued their debut four song EP produced by none other than Bob Kulick. Brute Forcz is made up of two American pro wrestlers "Slammer" and "Jammer" and British metal guitarist Will Wallner.
Motorcycle engines rev and the listener is greeted with NWOBHM seventies biker metal riffs on "Live For Speed". Ten seconds into my first listen I believe my initial reaction was "This kicks ass!" The riffs are choice and the vocal phrasing and delivery is top notch and bad to the bone. "Sex Machine" is a stomping sleazefest of strip club debauchery. Catchy driving old school rhythms not unlike early Motorhead remind you that they just don't make them like they used to and Brute Forcz get's "it". "Thrill Queen" is a lyrical ode to adult film starlets with a pulsing backbeat, musically bringing to mind Shout At The Devil era Crue aprt from the rough and mean no nonsesnse vocals of Jammer. "Leather and Chains" is hands down the most badass song on this EP. This track is pure old school metal worship similar to Metalucifer and anthemic in nature. The chorus is worth the price of admission on it's own merit.
I am very impressed with Brutal Forcz. I have to admit that the album cover initially through me for a loop, the logo looked a little too modern to be worth checking out and I really wasn't sure about the weird spelling of the band's name. Brute Forcz (Like forks or what?) Needless to say, I am really glad I checked this disc out. This is a great new band to check out for anyone into traditional metal!
