Music / Breed 77
Breed 77, pronounced "Breed Seven-Seven" are a Gibraltan alternative metal/flamenco band, with a unique sound that combines conventional metal elements with something quintessentially Meditteranean.
Having toured with the likes of Black Sabbath and Machine Head, they're now a headlining act in their own right, and in 2009 released their fifth studio album, Insects
The band's members freely admit that they are in the business for the money, though that doesn't appear to have damaged them any.
The music of Breed 77 contains examples of the following tropes:
- Cover Version: Zombie, originally by The Cranberries, with the second verse updated to reference 9/11 rather than 1916.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: On the border between 6 and 7, leaning a little more towards the 7.
- Money, Dear Boy: The reason the band exists at all, which they shamelessly admit. No one seems to care.
- Tearjerker The aptly named Tears, which is about children as victims of war. The final chorus is actually sung by a group of children, the fade out being to the sound of artillery.
- "World of Cardboard" Speech: Ressurection, about a man who has lost everything but is still determined to keep on fighting.
