Here Comes the Pain

Rated 3.25/5 (65%) (4 Votes)

Slovakia’s Broken Rain started as a cover band in 2006 and has gradually been working in original material with 2015’s Here Comes the Pain the resulting debut album. Given their source of inspiration (Sabbath, Priest, Purple, Zeppelin) it is no surprise the album is a mix of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The songs are melodic and built around simple, catchy riffs. The vocals are clear and strong with a decent range. You’ve got some traditional Heavy Metal in tracks like "Burn the Witch," "Forgotten Heroes" and "Prisoners in the Wasteland" that had me thinking of early Krokus and Keel but you also have some "power" ballads like "Tonight" that are more in line with glam bands like Warrant. The bonus track, "Broken Rain," has a boogie woogie piano line that wouldn’t be out of place in a Black Crows song. At the end of the day Here Comes the Pain sits in the gray area between Heavy Metal and Hard Rock that bands like Motley Crue and Quiet Riot once occupied and the question is which way will Broken Rain go next. If they stick with the Heavy Metal they could be a band to watch.
