Genre: Punk / Rock / Avant-garde
Release Date: 28th September 2012
Label: People Like You Records
So, here’s the live version of ‘Santa Muerte’, the ‘Santa Muerte Live Tapes’. Producing a live album due to the success of ‘Santa Muerte’ is a consequent step on the band’s way within music business. As I’ve already written in the review for the studio album, there’s no in between. Either you still love the BROILERS or you’re going to hate them due to the “commercial issues” nowadays which is really getting on my nerves. The Live Tapes are a ramble through decades the BROILERS had survived with their very own way to interpret what’s Oi!-music and what’s not… what will work for them and what not. Of course, due to the success of ‘Santa Muerte’ the applause and the reactions by the fans are louder and more frenetic during the newer songs. But the thing is, that the BROILERS won’t confirm the cliché of a underdog that wants to be mainstream at any cost! Not at all!
There’s a lot of songs, Sammy Amara describes or is telling the background just in order to reach the fans and to enthuse them for their older songs. These moments are intense… and so the quietness and thoughtfulness aside the songs are as precious as the songs themselves. The decision not to overproduce the album was the right one, in my opinion. The atmosphere is denser and one might get the feeling of attending the concert which leads to only one conclusion: regret for not being there! The ‘Santa Muerte Live Tapes’ are some kind of “Best of” album, as usual, but definitely with a more personal note as the most “Best of” releases. You’ve got to check it out!
