Fron­tiers When a band is on a roll it’s hard to hold back, but if a cou­ple of the mem­bers are busy with other projects, dras­tic ac­tion some­times has to take place. As such, Cal­i­for­nia Breed rose from the ashes of Black Coun­try Com­mu­nion, and it sees the mighty rhythm sec­tion that is Glenn Hughes and Ja­son Bon­ham join forces with a gui­tarist Andrew Watt to form a new and ex­cit­ing heavy rock trio. Andrew was in­tro­duced to Glenn by Ju­lian Len­non and he still can’t be­lieve his luck: “Get­ting to play with these leg­ends has given me wings!” he de­clares. And he’s cer­tainly fly­ing high on this al­bum. Glenn is play­ing and singing phe­nom­e­nally these days and seems to be rid­ing a wave of cre­ativ­ity. We par­tic­u­larly like the ar­peg­gio gui­tar work on Chemical Rain, which has a su­per feel and men­ace, in spite of the qui­eter pas­sages. It’s also one the first tracks writ­ten by Watt and Hughes - just a few days af­ter they met. Solo was an­other but that is only in­cluded on the Deluxe Edi­tion along with two videos. If you like your rock fu­ri­ous and heavy, look no fur­ther; this al­bum is a killer!
