BREED 77 'Cultura' (2004)

Hailing from Gibraltar, Breed 77 are a five piece metal band who fuse enormous riffs and powerful vocals with their own cultural elements to produce a style that is commercial, yet unique. This is their second full-length album and they are currently enjoying immense media coverage. And so they should.

Cultura is and absolutely amazing piece of work. The songs are very powerful and well thought out with a huge emphasis on the emotional vocals and thankfully the fast and fluent guitar solos! Whilst maintaining a nice and heavy sound throughout, Cultura also delivers in the more mellow department as well. Superb flamenco guitar strums and elegant fingerpicking is the canvas for the scarily good vocal melodies and harmonies that coat this album.

This album needs no long-winded arguments as the music really does speak for itself. The stand out tracks for me would have to be: Individuo, La Ultima Hora, The River, World On Fire and Calling Out. Buy this album with and open mind and you will receive so much more in return than just good tunes.


BREED 77 'The River' (Single)

Following on from the first single 'La Ultima Hora' taken from their upcoming album 'Cultura', Breed 77 deliver a single worthy of stealing the ‘best metal ballad’ title from Metallica’s 'Nothing Else Matters'.

The song starts with a soft classical guitar playing the melody and is quickly accompanied by the superb vocals of Paul Isola. As the song picks up pace, the dynamics are very clever and subtle because of the introduction of a string quartet backing.

This really fills out the song and just when you think the song is at a peak, they push it well over the edge with a very powerful chorus. This is about as good as singles can get in terms of structure, dynamics, melody and atmosphere and I strongly recommend anyone with an interest in rock/metal to buy this single. It really does have something for everyone.
