Review

Keine Märchen, sondern cremigstes Notengut wollen uns Grimms Gebrüder mit dieser Geschichte auftischen (es gibt noch mindestens ein weiteres Album), charismatischer Hard Rock, der Anbetern von beispielweise den jüngst vorgestellten DARK STARR den Speichelfluss-Nerv reizen sollte. Numbers will erhört werden, nicht schlechter als auf dem Meilenstein von AXE mit deren Nemesis dargeboten, oder auch Spreading Myself, das DIAMOND HEAD zur Ehre gereichen würde. Wäre dies eine Single, entfleucht von der Briteninsel, hurtig wanderten zahlreich die Talerchen zur Händlerschar. Die restlichen Kapitel sind dann nicht mehr ganz so fruchtig, bis auf das finale The End, das NWoBHM-Zünglern noch einmal die Aorta anschwellen lässt.

In the first I thought that their band name was badly chosen, but now as I know that their vocalist and guitarist are brothers (Joe and Bob Grimm), it's a two bladed sword and therefore pretty much ok for me.
Although the record differs extremely in it's price, it's not that rare at all. You can find a copy easily each month at ebay but watch out to not pay more than 15-25 $. Everything above is just robbery as often as it's offered. Musicially that price is very ok concearning the powerful driving Ohio Hard Rock with metallic edge and squealing solos that you'll hear en masse. I feel myself reminded to several early aussie bands, though I can't say why, prohably due to their vocalist's voice (great job!) and those bands are mainly influenced by british bands. Definitely not a boring early US band playing here though they've learned their job in the 70's I bet. But fortunately the direction's going straight into the 80's sound. If you like prototypical Hard Rock then the Bros. Grimm might give you an "earal blowjob"! (Futuresynner)
