It´s no secret that this trio loves the 80´s Hair Metal scene. And it´s just like Julian says himself
We didn´t invent the wheel we just kept going when everybody else stopped.
I think that it just describes what Beautiful Best is all about. To deliver high quality Hair Metal to the fans of the genre.
This is their third album and you might think that it starts to be a repetition of itself. But even if it sounds alike in genre it fells like the band develops on every album. It´s more like every album is a natural sequel to the previous one, then like you put them on repeat.
“Kick don the barricades” is an orgy in all t5he things that springs to mind when you hear the expression Hair Metal.
You can hear influences from all the great bands from this era in the music, and actually on this deal I can detect a lot of Bonfire in the sound. This might just be a coincident or maybe a German legacy? Anyhow it just brings a greater variety to the songs.
The album starts with “ Bad boys never dance “ a classic Hair Metal song in the sense that it got all the right ingredients, the riffs, rhythm and a catchy chorus.
“ Big stuff “ with lyrics that seems to be taken from a teenagers dirty mind, takes you from a trip back to your teenage years.
And it just rolls on from track to track. It´s just a banquette of Hair Metal at it´s finest hour. And it also, of course, include a power ballad “ The night cries for you “. I guess it wouldn´t had been complete otherwise.
Julian Angel proves that he is the King of Hair Metal !
So all you Hair Metal heads just go get your copy.
And tell all your friends, course 2014 is a party and you are invited !
