"Red, White and Brew" (Self-released; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Thunderbrew brings a hard, raw edginess to the table and delivers a power packed performance that could share the stage with any heavy metal / hard rock act out there. 

The band has a large repertoire, from rock'n'roll to slow country-ish acoustic ballads to high driving metal songs and this CD kept me guessing from song to song. I liked the dark quality of the music that, in some cases, reminded me of early Black Sabbath with a little blues included. 

This is a high quality heavy metal act full of potential and -- with the right exposure -- Thunderbrew could and should be one of the premiere bands on the scene today. 

Discovering bands like Thunderbrew is the main reason I love my job of reviewing music.

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.
