Burning Brides – Fall Of The Plastic Empire

When the debut album by Philadelphian punk-metal trio Burning Brides was first released on a modest indie (File 13) two years ago, it was proclaimed a lo-fi classic. Co-produced by indie troubadour Brian McTear (of Bitter, Bitter Weeks fame), the album had enough mainstream rock appeal to score them a deal with V2. Now that Fall Of The Plastic Empire has been remastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Sonic Youth), the metallic leanings of singer/guitarist Dimitri Coats have been fused with the pop-inspired basslines in such a way to ensure Burning Brides become more than just peripheral players in the neo-garage rock scene.
