"Bastard Sons of a Pure Breed" (self-produced; 2011)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Two things you would normally not associate with each other: metal music and trombones. Well, I donít think Fallstaf got that memo because that is exactly what they do.

The CD is entitled "Bastard Sons of a Pure Breed" and, when the music starts, you hear something that sounds like a keyboard, but in the lower register. After a few cuts, I finally realized what I was hearing: a frickin' trombone in a heavy metal band! I played trombone in high school and it never sounded like this!

That being said, as much fun as the trombone is on this album, it does not overshadow the fact that this is one kick-ass metal band. From the very first cut, this music is really something to behold. This band has all: killer music, outstanding storytelling ability and enough charisma to light up a large city.

This is a rock solid music experience and it comes highly recommended.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
