Brother Firetribe - Sunbound album review

The best Melodic Rock you can get this month

Cover art for Brother Firetribe - Sunbound album

The fourth full-length album from Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen and company is a mixed but rewarding bag, from Indelible Heroes, marking rock’s fallen icons (‘Thank god for strong men and Motörhead,’ sings Pekka Heino) to an Eye Of The Tiger-style lighter-waving anthem called Taste Of A Champion. Overall, though, this is great stuff and well worth checking out.

Dave Ling was a co-founder of Classic Rock magazine. His words have appeared in a variety of music publications, including RAW, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Prog, Rock Candy, Fireworks and Sounds. Dave’s life was shaped in 1974 through the purchase of a copy of Sweet’s album ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’, along with early gig experiences from Status Quo, Rush, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Yes and Queen. As a lifelong season ticket holder of Crystal Palace FC, he is completely incapable of uttering the word ‘Br***ton’.
