      Nice one!

      Ride the Beast is an album that was released lately (2007) by NWOBHM (new wave of british heavy metal) band Buffalo. Hailing from the North West of England, Buffalo had moderate success, supporting Motorhead in their hey day. This album consists of tracks which were mostly on demos, generally tracks that were well known on the live scene but never went recorded.

      As far as I can tell there is not many reasons why you should buy this over some of their other compilation albums but this is the one that I have!

      Buffalo are probably one of the bands that least rely on satanic imagery when it comes to lyrics, the singer was highly influenced by the Scorpions and you can really see that on this album as it sounds a bit like a less Germanic version of the band when they were at their best. Mother and Backs to the Wall are good tributes to that style. Other tracks like Ride The Beast sound like a glam metal track done in a british pub rock style. Musically the band are sound and they try lots of different tempos to make quite a special little album.

      This one gets the thumbs up!
