"Fast & Dangerous" Album Review
Iron Bastards are a a French Rock and Roll band who intend to play their music as loud and fast as possible. They released this album back in 2016 but let's dive in and see what they're all about. "Fast & Dangerous" is the opening track and right away features that Motorhead influence in full swing. It's hard, fast and will get the blood flowing right from the jump. It has an appropriate title because that's exactly what it is. The guitar solo on the track is truly out of this world! "The Code Is Red" has a Southern Rock tinge to it but it doesn't overpower the track. The track will get heads banging along in no time. The bass even has some funk to it on the track. "Rock O' Clock" is a pure Rock track through and through. It's a high octane ride through the forest of Rock music and the listener is along for the ride. When the guitar takes over later in the track, it blows the roof off everything. It has to be heard to be believed. "The Princess & the Frog" has the sweet guitar riff that is so damn good and is the backbone of the track. The vocals are still top notch and will have people singing along because everything just works so well on the track. The guitar solo is stellar as always and keeps the track moving at a high clip. "Out Of Control" is the shortest track on the album and packs a ton of punch. It's so fast that it doesn't give the listener time to breathe and sometimes that's an incredible quality to have in a track. It truly is "out of control". "The Wise Man" takes the pace a couple notches down. It's still Hard Rock at its core but it has a tad more controlled chaos to it. The track is a testament to the band that when they want to slow things down, they can and the outcomes is a high quality Rock track. "Born on the Wrong Side" picks up the energy quite a bit and unleashes hell by way of the signature fast and heavy Iron Bastards sound. The track has a ton of depth to it and it's a standout track for sure because of it. "Sarcasm" doesn't pull any punches. It's straight in your face Rock and Roll and you'll be damned if you don't like it. The track is still just as intense as earlier tracks. "Ballbreaker Number One" is a short track that will get circle pits at the live show if played. It's such a high energy track that the listener will have no choice but to get into its infectious riffs and grooves. "The Snake In The Sky" is a rollercoaster of a Rock track. It knows when to go full throttle and when to hold back and because of this, it makes it a very unique track that will surely be enjoyed by quite a lot of people of Rock music. "Vintage Riders" is the closing track and is pure Iron Bastards through and through. The track perfectly represents Iron Bastards and makes a killer ender of a track that'll have listeners yearning for more and more.

Verdict:
Iron Bastards bring that old school Rock fury with their "Fast & Dangerous" full length album.
