Blood Brothers

in my humble opinion

Had a stroll down to the Fleece, my local, last night to have a squint at this band. Iron Maiden really isn't my thing at all and to be honest I only knew about 6 or 7 of the songs.

Well these lads were fab. Stayed the whole night.

They can all play well, the vocalist is very very good and they have proper shit hot harmonies, and that makes a hell of a difference. Loads of energy and thoroughly entertaining. Spoke to quite a few local muso's and they all thought the same. The crowd absolutely loved it.

The two highlights for me were Phantom of the Opera which was nailed perfectly and on the one and only occasion that the singer needed a crib sheet on the floor to get him through the lyrics the guitarist put his his foot over it to f**k him up, outstanding, my kind of band mate.

Even if, like me, Iron Maiden isn't your thing these guys are a joy to watch. If Iron Maiden is your bag then you're in for a real treat. Best band I've seen in ages.

Well done lads, very well done indeed.

Put a medley together - set to Hd

Went to watch Blood Brothers tribute to Iron Maiden last night at The Fleece in Ashton-In – Makerfield and was absolutely astounded by their authenticity , talent and musicianship .

They certainly know how to put a show on with sensational gear, stunning backdrop and pure love for what they do . The audience was ecstatic and the Fleece was absolutely bouncing to the rafters .

One incredible anthem after another keeping the audience on their toes , getting them involved and making it a night to remember .

I’m not really a Rock/Metal fan but could appreciate how good these guys are and thoroughly enjoyed myself along with the rest of the crowd .

To say they were awesome is an understatement .

Solid drumming , lots of savoury guitar solos and licks -=, pulsating bass and raunchy rock vocals .

Great show !
