That bass tone sounds like a rupturing volcano; Jens Becker is a beast. I mean, damn, I noticed it before the raging drum artillery and the guitar shark-attack! You can hear the bass curling and spitting out pools of lava every second, giving the EP a dirty, merciless tone already. Production is just as clear and crisp as Death Or Glory, and the drop in atmosphere isnt that great like it was with the Little Big Horn EP for Blazon Stone. Wild Animal is a crazy track with a strong rhythm, particularly with the slicing riffs and that consistent drum battering. Rolf himself I can picture running around Port Royal like a wolf in boots just jumping around feasting on people and pineapples. The original Chains And Leather from Branded And Exiled kicks ass, but this isnt what Id call a perfect re-recording. It seems very rushed compared to the original, which is the saddest bit. Even if you havent heard the original, this version seems way too fast for a mid-paced song. Rolf rushes through his lines, but the instruments just go along with it. Thanks to the beefed up production akin to Death Or Glory, the tone is incredibly majestic and grand, with riffs knocking down walls and a solo like a dispatched firework. The song is the same length as the original, but with this changed formula it sort of drags on. The lyrics are probably the coolest though. “We are right praying metal tonight the message from hell and its spell. Even Satan wears leather, our souls to it forever so let us pray our rules tonight” This album is worth getting primarily for this song alone. Tear Down the Walls- This song is pretty cool because it goes slow then fast and then stays rather fast! The riff for the chorus is well structured; however the lyrics are kinda of lame with this weird voice noise before the chorus. By the way the chorus goes Tear Down the Walls, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, etc. Overall all okay song, but not the best. Stortebeker- The lyrics for this song are fucking awesome, and the riffs are awesome as well. The riffs sound a lot like Iron Maiden (Killers) style, while the solo sounds a lot like Iron Maiden (Somewhere in Time) style. It is a pretty fast song to! This is another reason why this EP is pretty good. You cant top that wild solo! Its such a short epic about a privateer who could kick ass with the best of them, and the riffs back him up!
