It's always great to learn of bands with formidable talent focusing their energy on writing and recording in this style, and BR seem to do it with ease.

The French Alps seem an unlikely birthplace for a Sleazy Hard Rock act, but such is the case with Black Rain, a quartet celebrating their tenth anniversary with 'Released'. Recorded between their adopted homes of Paris and Los Angeles, 'Released' actually represents their fourth full-length album; however, it is the first to garner industry buzz by attracting attention from legendary producer Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper), whose talents are used to give this album a massive boost in the sonic department.

This recording is the culmination of years hammering it out on the smaller stage and maturing into a band that demands notice. The album features thirteen tracks of high-octane Hard Rock that delivers big attitude and even bigger hooks. BR is every bit as competent as their contemporaries Crazy Lixx and Crash Diet, yet would be equally comfortable playing alongside the old guard, including Ratt, Firehouse and Scorpions.

The overwhelming highlight of the album is 'Puppet On A String' – this song has that quintessential sing-along and party-hard vibe which absolutely embodies everything that is fun with this music. 'Eat You Alive' is not only another cracking track, but it reveals the band's humorous side by quoting the famous circus music melody, 'Entry Of The Gladiators'. Their cheekiness continues on one of the concluding tracks entitled 'Rock My Funeral'; it's a fist-pumping ditty that will have many a corpse rolling in their graves and wishing they had this song as their send-off.

It's always great to learn of bands with formidable talent focusing their energy on writing and recording in this style, and BR seem to do it with ease. They possess the image and songs... and can now enjoy increased exposure with the support of a reputable label in UDR Music. If that's not enough, Black Rain has an incredible opportunity to deliver their raucous music to the masses with a slot at this year's Download Festival in Paris. This, coupled with the experience they have garnered thus far, could very well represent a breakout moment and afford them the momentum they need to reach out to a larger audience.
