Lost Breed/Save Yourself/Shadow Kingdom Records/2013 CD Re-Issue Review

  This  is  another  review  of  an  recording from  Lost  breed  which  continues  their mixture  of  traditional doom metal  and  hard rock  and  this  is  a  review  of  their 1995  album "Save  Yourself"  which  was  re-issued  by  Shadow  Kingdom  Records  in  the  year  of  2013.

  'Circles" begins with  some  heavy bass  guitar  riffing  and  then  the  drums,  rhythm  guitars  and  vocals  start  kicking  in  along  with  some  melodic  elements  but  also  remaining  heavy  at  the  same  time  and  halfway  through  the  song  there is  a  brief  use  of  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  utilized.

  "B.A.C"  begins  with  some  heavy  70's  style  metal guitar  and  bass  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  vocals  and  a  minute  later  hard  rock  style  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  added  to  the  song  and  they  come  in and  out.

   ''The  Gears"  begins  with  some  heavy  doom  metal  guitar  riffing  and  leads  along  with  some drums  and  melodic  vocals  and  halfway  throughout  the  song  the  guitar  leads  make  a  return  in  certain  sections  of  the  song.

  "Going  Strong"  begins  with  some  heavy  and  melodic  guitar  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  vocals  and  a  few  seconds  back  up  shouts  are  added  into  the  song  and  halfway  in  the  song t here  are  some  powerful  bass  guitars  being  added  into  the  mix  and  towards  the  end  there  are  some  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  utilized  briefly.

  "472  C.I Of  Death'  begins  with  some  heavy,  dark  and  melodic  guitar  riffing  along  with  some  drums  and  vocals  and  after  a  minute  there  is  a  brie f use  of  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  utilized  and  towards  the  end  the  bass  guitars  get  alot  more  powerful  sounding.

  'Lease  On  Life"  begins  with  some  heavy  bass  riffng  which  leads  to  some  drums,  vocals  and  heavy  and  melodic  guitar  riffs  and  towards  the end  there  is  a  brief  use  of  guitar  leads  and  solos  being  utilized.

  "Chop"  begins  with  some  heavy  guitar  and  bass  riffs  along  with  some  leads  before  the  drums and  vocals  kick  in  and  then t he  music  starts  getting  alot  heavier  sounding  and  towards  the  end  some  guitar  leads  are  added  into  the  song.

  "Dragons  Of  Chaos"  begins  with  some  heavy  guitar  and  bass  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  melodic  vocals  and  halfway  through  the  song  the  guitar  riffing  starts  adding  in  some  melodic  elements.

  "You  Don't  Need  To  Live"  begins with  some  heavy  guitar  riffs  which  leads  up  to  some  drums  and  melodic  vocals  and  after  awhile  the  guitar  riffs  start  adding in  some  melody  and  towards  the  end  there  is  a  brief  use  of  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  utilized.

  'Tonga  Slut"  begins  with  some  heavy  guitar  riffs  which  leads  up  to  some  drums  and  vocals  and  towards  the  end  the  bass  guitars  get  more  powerful  and  there  are  also  some  guitar  solos  and  leads  being  utilized.

  "Simulator"  begins  with  some  guitar  leads  and  bass  guitars  before  the  drums and  melodic  guitar  riffs  start  kicking  in  and  adding  in  some  speed  metal  elements  and  vocals  and  after  a  minute  the  solos make  their  return  to  the  song.

  'Up  The  Hill"  begins  with  some  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  drums  which  also  lead  up  to  some  vocals  kicking  in  along  with  some  powerful  bass  guitars  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  song.

  Song lyrics  cover  darkness  and  everyday  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy,  old  school  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Lost  Breed  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  doom metal/rock, you  should  check out  this  album. RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Circles"  "Going  Strong"  "You  Don't  Need  To  Live"  and  "Simulator".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
