Being relatively new to running wild owning only the black hand inn, and death or glory to great cd’s. I can’t compare the brotherhood to much of their other recent stuff. Although in comparison to the aforementioned two releases this is definitley differente some song’s having more of a rock sound to them. Songs like detonator and crossfire which i think are great songs. Crossfire having a great chorus and guitar work. Pirates song a great little number it doesn’t waste any time with a catchy chorus and guitar. Unation and the brotherhood are the song’s that come closer to sound of the past and the great song’s as well unation definitley being another highlight of the album. The other song’s like welcome to hell,soulstrippers,and dr. horror are good solid songs. The brotherhood is not without its fault’s and although im in the minority with this opinion i find the ghost to be one of the weaker numbers not being as a good or involving as their lengtheir numbers from the two cd’s mentioned above. It is just not good enough to be over ten minutes long. And sometimes their more straightforward rock sound can start to sound a little stale. Bottom line if you are a fan who has stuck with running wild for awhile then the brotherhood is a little differente but should still be a enjoyable listen.
