Metal played and sung the way it should be.

Ramsbottom's Sister Rose (named after a Manchester brothel) have been plying their trade in various shapes and sizes since 1978. So that's around forty years of Rocking experience that they have under their collective belts. What's funny then, is that this self-titled release (apart from a five track EP) is their first official album.

As you would therefore expect, from musicians who have been working for as long as they have, they are as tight as the proverbial duck's behind and have polished their songs to a diamond-hardened edge. What immediately struck me on hearing this album for the first time, was not just the depth and range of the band's song-writing and musicianship but the top notch production that hammers home all that is good in SR's take on Metal. Personally, I can hear a lot of (unsurprisingly) NWOBHM influences going on during the songs, but there's also some AC/DC, a lot of US Hard Rock/Metal (especially in the guitar work) and surprisingly, I can hear a bit of Primal Fear; particularly in some of the vocals of Peter Nicolson, who at times reminds me of a gruffer Ralf Scheepers.

'City Of Thieves', 'King Of Cabaret', 'The Devil's Hand' and 'Under My Skin' are the opening barrage of songs that SR hit you with, and boy do they Rock and get those Metal Juices flowing (ooerr missus). They then continue to pummel you with their brand of old-school Metal with the likes of 'You Got My Love', 'Shame On You', the groove-laden 'Rattlin' Bones' and 'Shake Your Snake' which all hit that Metal heart you've got nestling within your chest. SR will never get awards for originality, but really who cares, when Metal is played this well and with this much belief and conviction?

Out of all the items I've been privileged to review for this issue, the Sister Rose album is easily one of the releases I've played the most. So that in itself must say something about their music. Metal played and sung the way it should be and hopefully we won't have to wait another forty years for an album. 'Sister Rose' is available at www.sisterrose.co.uk (Thanks to Paul Gilligan for the heads up).
