Evoking mental imagery of bathing in the sun on a Venice Beach walkway, complete with rollerskating long-legged beauties and trimmed pink poodles, Brother Firetribe’s smooth hard rock has that huge American AOR sound no one in Finland has ever even ventured to attempt.
Unashamedly taking a bow to their influences, Van Halen, Journey and other chartbusters of old, Brother Firetribe’s sound is built on a plethora of melodies most composers wouldn’t dare to dream of. In a true eighties’ fashion, all the required tools are also applied; killer vocal harmonies and airy keyboard lines that will stick to your head like a misplaced bubble gum. The cherries on the pie are Pekka Heino’s smooth, dreamy vocals and Emppu Vuorinen’s guitarwork. Also being the guitarist of famed Finnish metal group Nightwish, Emppu’s immaculate sense of style and the rich trademark sound of his guitar simply can’t be mistaken. The easy-going nature of the music is easily audible on the blazing debut album “False Metal”. The summer is upon us and the soundtrack of this summer, Brother Firetribe’s “False Metal” is here to make you smile. Let some sunshine into your heart! Caveat emptor: If there’s even an inkling of a hard rock fan in you, you might witness your hair curling to a naturally big 80’s hairdo when listening to “False Metal”!
