Thank the Gods of Rock for unleashing the almighty, Beasto Blanco! The band’s debut release, ‘Live Fast Die Loud’ is a hard rock/metal hybrid that will have you rocking and rolling for days as their music resonates in your head. Beasts Blanco is Chuck Garric, ( most recently the bass player with Alice Cooper) on vocals and guitar, Chris Latham on guitars, Jan Le Grow on bass and vocals, Tim Husung on drums and vocals and Tiffany Lowe on synth and vocals. As well as appearances by Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper), Jonathan Mover and Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico. Formed in 2012, Garric and Latham set out to create a live, raw power, rock & roll band that would let them indulge their influences and imagery that shaped their collective musical background. After one listen, I can say, they accomplished that and then some. In an age where musicians are mixing genres left and right, but end up being more of a gimmick, Beasto Blanco makes it clear that hard rock and metal make a very potent mix of sound, and you can tell these guys are dead serious on making sure you feel that through their music. Beasto Blanco’ s uncanny ability to pay homage to their influences without sounding like a shameless rip-off is simply amazing. It’s a fine line to walk and this band does it with a combination of confidence and swagger. While some sections of their songs sound like newly discovered tracks from Motorhead and White Zombie, make no mistake Beasto Blanco bring their own flavor to the table. As is evident once you press play and the Spaghetti Western vibe of “Ill Nostro Spirito” opens the album before putting the pedal to the metal and going full throttle with, “Beasto Blanco”, “Blood Shot”, “California”, “Breakdown” and “Vegas”. Every song is a winner loaded to the hilt with raw energy. I kid you not, this is the caliber of music that makes you want to punch a stranger in the face and ask them “Who are these guys?! Tell me!”
Bottom line; ‘Live Fast Die Loud’ is one of the best hard rock albums to come out this year.
It’s like a “grindhouse horror movie” unique, unpredictable and so good it’s scary. Long live Beasto Blanco!!
