  • After the classic FIRE DOWN UNDER and RESTLESS BREED albums, RIOT should have been major stars. Instead, they found themselves dumped by their record label. BORN IN AMERICA, however, IS a solid follow up to those albums, one that combines the styles of those two with more Judas Priest influences. BIA is a Heavier album than either FDU or RB, but does lose a little of the “class” that those two albums showed. But not much. BORN IN AMERICA is still top-notch early 80’s American Metal, with standout tracks like “Running From The Law,” “Heavy Metal Machine,” “Gunfighter,” and the classic title track. Sadly, this line-up fell apart after their BIA tour, and will never be able to get back together due to the untimely death of powerhouse vocalist Rhett Forrester in the early 90’s. But if you like straight-ahead Hard Rock and Metal, BORN IN AMERICA is for you. -(and if you like this one, check out Armored Saint’s SYMBOL OF SALVATION, and Saxon’s UNLEASH THE BEAST and METALHEAD CD’s)
