PRETTY MAIDS
Louder Than Ever

Frontiers Records





Long running Danish melodic metal band PRETTY MAIDS has been on a hot streak lately. Since 2010 they’ve released two amazing new studio albums (2010’s Pandemonium and 2013’s Motherland), a killer live CD/DVD set (2012’s It Comes Alive) and now they’re back with a new collection of songs titled Louder Than Ever.

Released on Frontiers Records, Louder Than Ever is an interesting release. There are 12 songs total. Eight of them are re-recorded versions of older PRETTY MAIDS songs. They’ve reworked songs from their ‘90s Massacre releases (which are all in desperate need of a good reissue campaign, by the way). I don’t think fans were exactly clamoring for new versions of “Psycho Time Bomb Planet Earth” and “Virtual Brutality”, but it is interesting enough to hear them in the hands of the new lineup and new producer.

The remaining four songs on Louder Than Ever are what fans are really going to be interested. They are brand new recordings that carry forward the powerful and melodic aspects that made Pandemonium and Motherland such amazing albums. There are two songs; “Nuclear Boomerang” and “Deranged” that are straight-up head banging heavy metal numbers, and two very soulful ballads “My Soul To Take” and “A Heart Without A Home”. They’re all great songs and really give you a taste for what the band is all about.

With any other band you’d be justified in writing a collection like this off as a quick way to fulfill contract obligations with the label, and that may be the case here. But this is PRETTY MAIDS we’re talking about, so even a collection of reworked ‘90s songs is still going to sound awesome, especially when accompanied by four strong new recordings. I strongly suggest you pick up a copy as soon as you can!

The physical release of Louder Than Ever comes in a digipack with a bonus DVD featuring a Motherland tour retrospective as well as vintage footage and interviews plus additional material.
