One Bites” is the second Berlyn album released by High Roller Records,
last year they released a seven track LP with their 1982 demo and some
live recordings from 1982. Berlyn
was formed back in 1979 but they never managed to release anything
except for the 1982 demo before they broke up in 1983.
One Bites” consists of eight tracks recorded live at the Green Gate in
London back in 1983, the two tracks “Streetfights” and “We’ve Heard it
All Before” comes from the 1982 demo tape, the other six tracks have
never been released before.
music delivered by Berlyn has two sides to it, first of all there are
the hard rocking N.W.O.B.H.M. style tracks, but there are also some
melodic tunes. The track “Lonely Boy” is my absolute favorite a very
melodic song with great high pitched vocals, but also the up-tempo
“Streetfights” is an absolute hammer.
course the sound on “This One Bites” aren’t up to date, but I have
heard much worse live recordings.
great piece of vinyl comes with a fine cover artwork and a free
poster, but you have to hurry it’s limited to 500 copies.
album is essential to all you N.W.O.B.H.M. freaks out there.
