"Branded for Life" (Patac Records; 2011)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
A lot of bands are using the 50's promotional try to
introduce their music to the masses. A single here and a possible EP that
follows; it makes for a good test when you are trying to find out if your
"sound" will make a buzz among fans. Rawhide has started their musical chapter
with a four song EP entitled "Branded for Life." These guys have a raw sound
with a Motorhead vibe. It's rock'n'roll and it tears down the accent wall of
music because each instrument is forefront.
One more interesting note about how music is delivered these days: It's all digital. You can download tracks for free and if the disc is offered for free as well, then it’s a good day to visit the web. Some bands are aware of how their music is heard and even prompt for a pay-what-you-want choice. At the time of this writing, this disc is such that you can pay what you want.

Rawhide will be working on a full-length disc because four tracks can only take you so far. I look forward to more head knocking!
Rawhide: Mr. Geil Heis (Rob) - Vox, Guitar; Captain Twofinger (Erik) – Bass; Little Mike - Guitar, Backing Vox; Warslaughter (Carl) – Drums.

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.
