After two albums, the Frenchmen of Born Again come back with an EP, conceived and written during the confinement periods of 2020. Long delayed for questions of stage agendas mainly, "Live Hard, Die Free!" is finally in stores this fall.

While they were still searching for themselves on their previous productions, the band seems to have refocused on a rather traditional heavy metal inspired by the English heavyweights of the end of the seventies from which they draw their main influences, namely Judas Priest and Motörhead. And several clues lead us to believe that they did it right. The title of the EP alone is reminiscent of Judas Priest's 'Rock Hard Ride Free', just as 'Metal Wings' is reminiscent of the same Englishmen's 'Metal Gods'. The inspiration is also in the same vein with sharp riffs and heavy metal ambiences very typical NWOBHM, Steff's twirling soli very well written and an impeccable and modern production but dressed with a grainy sound patina that goes very well with the music.

Born Again evolves like a fish in water on these shores and the listening is of a great fluidity. It is the authenticity of the playing and writing of the combos that gives this feeling that the band has finally found its niche. The rocky voice of Thierry is intense and shows a big improvement compared to the former productions. The pleasure is thus with the appointment with a Heavy which sounds devilishly true. Of course, originality is not the main asset of Born Again, and the eponymous title of the album which closes this EP is a blatant example so much the title looks like Motörhead straight out of "Ace Of Spaces". However, it should be seen as a huge tribute as Lemmy's band has been a major musical inspiration for the band from France.

OTHER REVIEWS
DECAPITATED: Cancer Culture (2022)
DEATH METAL - "Cancer Culture" is a violent, aggressive and energetic record, a kind of return to the roots.
BELPHEGOR: The Devils (2022)
BLACK METAL - Although technically very sharp, "The Devils" confirms that there is nothing more to expect - or so little - from Belphegor whose brutality is now drained.
