A raw, "in-your-face", straight-forward, concise Rock 'n' Roll album.

A young Female-Fronted quartet from Cardiff, Beth Blade & The Beautiful Disasters have spent the past eighteen months honing their craft touring as support to the likes of Ricky Warwick & Damon Johnson and The Marco Mendoza Band. 'Bad Habit' is their debut album, following the 'Sick Like This' EP, and funded by a PledgeMusic campaign. Recorded in just six days under the guidance of Nick Brine (Thunder, Tyketto, The Darkness), the album is a raw, "in-your-face", straight-forward, concise Rock 'n' Roll album.

Fuelled by a middle-finger-in-the-air, confident attitude and displaying a penchant for rabble-rousing anthems, this definitely will appeal to fans of The Amorettes and Thundermother. Beth Blade possesses a mightily powerful and well-rounded voice while new guitarist Craig Manning is a real talent, able to fire off solos that can melt your face off yet also exhibiting enough restraint when required.

The press release recommends this album to fans of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Halestorm, and you can definitely see the influence of the latter in the songs 'Beautiful Disease' and 'Down And Dirty'. Blade may not quite have the lyrical nous Lzzy Hale had at this stage in her career, but that will come; she can do so much better than the likes of the generic 'Hell Yeah!' or 'If You're Ready To Rock' with the ballads 'Poster Girl For Pain' and the excellent 'Angels With A Dirty Face' demonstrating proof of this potential.

A very good start and album number two could well be amazing.
