Blood Brothers

Rose Tattoo - "Blood Brothers"

ALBUM TITLE: Blood Brothers

GENRE: Hard Rock


LABEL: Armageddon


ARTIST: Rose Tattoo


In the category of ´cult bands`, Rose Tattoo has been at the top of  the pile for years. The raw style of blues rock that the Australians  manage to create out of a hot mix of slide guitars, pounding hooks with  sharp and tight rhythm along with the unmistakeable voice of the front  man Angry Anderson is what gives the fans a welcome feast in what is  today a fast food orientated music business. The best thing about Rose  Tattoo is: The band can take a punch and are full of vitality, they put  every kick in the face behind them and still have the energy to carry on  and deliver a new quality product. Their new album, Blood Brothers is  not only a true to the time Rock´n`Roll album that mixes traditional and  modern styles in a super high quality but is also a tribute to the band  members Peter Wells and Ian Rilen who unfortunately recently lost their  lives. In short: Blood Brothers is a manifestation of Rock´n`Roll of  the strongest form, powerful, unrelenting and wildly uncompromising.
Although the death of his two friends had left a massive hole in the  life of singer Angry Anderson, he wanted – especially in respect to  Peter Wells – to keep the band alive. This is why Blood Brothers sounds  so typically down to earth and done with the hand. The current line-up  of the band consists of Angry Anderson (vocals), Mick Cocks(Guitar),  Steve King (Bass), Paul DeMarco (Drums) and newcomer Dai Pritchard  (Guitar), a group of people who know how to produce hand made  Rock´n`Roll of the finest Australian sort which in the thirtieth year of  their existence leaves nothing to falter. The new album was produced by  Mark Opitz in ´Studio 301`, Sydney, Australia.
With Blood Brothers Rose Tattoo have managed to produce an album that  equals the two predecessors 25 To Life (2000) and Pain (2002), so that  the musicians after a long break are able to impressively return for the  new millenium. The new album is full with lively rock numbers, that  just stick in the brain and impress the fun the band members have in  their music.
