Are you ready to some ”Dirty Heavy Metal Rock ’n’ Roll” then check out Gun Barrel’s brand new release ‘Outlaw Invasion’.
Since Gun Barrel released the EP ‘Back to Suicide’ in 2000, they have provided us with great music on albums like: ‘Power Dive’ (2001), ‘Battle Tested’ (2003) and ‘Bombard Your Soul" from 2005. Well... Gun Barrel is a tad more melodic on ‘Outlaw Invasion’ but they have still released an album that will find its way into my CD-player from time to time.
There are still pure Gun Barrel to be find and tracks like, “Front Killers”, “Cheap, Wild & Nasty”,"Turn to Black", "Wanted Man" and the title-track “Outlaw Invasion” will still satisfy the hungry Gun Barrel fans, I’m sure.
I could have wished for a few more up-tempo rockers... but heck... you can’t release the same album over and over again right? Its still Gun Barrel... but with more melody and less “Dirty Heavy Metal Rock ’n’ Roll”. Most of the songs contain catchy and memorable choruses... so I won’t complain. But let’s see how the Gun Barrel fans will welcome this album.
‘Outlaw Invasion’ is produced in the Impuls Studios in Hamburg by Yens Leonhardt (Iron Savior, Kingdome Come, Savage Circus...), mastered in the Danish Jailhouse Studios by Tommy Hansen (TNT, Pagan’s Mind, Helloween, Manticora...) and they have done an excellent job.
