Bitch are a band from Los Angeles that plays a classic form of hard rock/,metal with a punk edge and this is a review of their 1983 album "Be My Slave" and 1982 ep "Damnation Alley" which where re-issued on one album by Metal Blade Records in the year of 1989.
The album starts out with drums and heavy guitars before going into a more rock/metal direction along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful as well as melody and then the vocals start to kick in and after awhile solos make their way into the music.
As the album continues back up vocals are added into certain sections of the music and the music also gets more diverse along with a mixture of more fast true metal songs along with more mid paced hard rock style tunes that where a little bit more closer to the more mainstream sound at the time but much more darker and violent as well a s bringing in power ballads with clean guitars.
With these 2 recordings Bitch played a very melodic form of metal which had the heaviness of NWOBHM but the catchy elements of L.A metal but they also had a darker approach to the genre.
Song lyrics cover heavy metal, bondage and everyday themes, while the production had a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for the time it was released and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Bitch are a very great sounding heavy metal/hard rock and if you are looking for underrated stuff from the early 80's. you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Be My Slave" "Heavy Metal Breakdown" "World War III" and "Live For The Whip". 8 out of 10.
