Beasto Blanco’s third release takes the live album gamble. Front man and long-time Alice Cooper bassist, Chuck Garric, shares the Berlin show was a special night and an electric show. Does it capture a symbiotic moment between band and crowd creating a sum greater than its parts or is it a mosh pit of chaotic noise leaving the listener struggling to filter melody from mud? Unfortunately the house wins; both the band and fans lose. The mix is devoid of high end and so overloaded on the low end it leaves the listener wondering if the band is playing in another room.

The band selects excellent songs from their first two releases. Songs such as “Motor Queen”, “Death Rattle” and “Honey” are highlights as they manage to sound listenable due slower pacing and more definition between band elements. When the pace quickens as in the opening track “Beasto Blanco”, it sounds like a jet engine at take-off. A competent cover of Alice Cooper’s “Feed My Frankenstein” provides a moment of recognition for new and old listeners of the band.

It’s evident the band brought their “A” game in terms of songs and effort to this show, but sadly it wasn’t captured in this recording. Recommend for fans of Beasto Blanco’s studio releases as they can rely on their memories of the studio recordings as a foundation for a meaningful experience.

    Zac was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. His interest in heavy music began in the 70s with his father’s Johnny Cash albums. After cousins introduced him to Steppenwolf, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, KISS, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, Johnny Cash didn’t stand a chance. The 80s were spent in full pursuit of everything Metal: searching for new music at record stores, listening to albums, studying the covers and sleeves, and attending concerts. In the 90s, he preferred Death Metal over Grunge and hosted the Death Metal Juggernaut on WUPX in Marquette, Michigan. It was advertised as the only prime time Death Metal radio show in the country.
