Brother Firetribe – Sunbound [2017]

Finnish melodic hard rockers Brother Firetribe return with their fourth album titled Sunbound which delivers yet another slab of quality eighties influenced anthems featuring their signature heavy dose of keyboards. Produced by Tomppa Nikulainen, Sunbound is a pristine sounding album with great performances from all band members that really takes you back in time.

Featuring members of Leverage and Nightwish, Brother Firetribe continue to produce high quality European infused eighties rock that might be an acquired taste for some but which they do so well. Highlights include the synth heavy “Indelible Heroes” that pays homage to past musical icons such as Motorhead and Prince, the instantly catchy chorus of “Last Forever”, the moody and dark atmospheric vibe of “Shock”, and the epic arrangement and orchestral production of album closer “Phantasmagoria”.

The Japanese edition features two bonus tracks including the excellent chorus of “Don’t Cry For Yesterday” and a brilliant acoustic version of “For Better Or For Worse” from their previous album Diamond In The Firepit which breathes new life into a classic song by way of some rhythmic percussion and a very smooth guitar solo. Despite the fact that Sunbound is probably the weakest offering from Brother Firetribe so far, it certainly offers up another good quality and entertaining album that continues their legacy as keepers of the eighties melodic rock flame.
