Released first in Japan (their promised land) and many months after in United States, “Brethren…” is an amazing concept album for the American primitive tribes, their wars against the European colonialists and a great perspective about the Indian way of thinking.
Besides this, “Brethren…” was a joking resemblance of the band’s status in the music industry… As Indians in a European world… Worthless to say that this album had the same luck with all the previous and next lps of the band, lacking any kind of professional promoting and commercial success.
Furthermore and contrary to other Riot’s albums that have won a respectable legacy throughout the years, “Brethren” remains almost completely unknown. Just like its Indian heroes.

Have you ever wondered about the amazing worldwide success of Rammstein despite the fact that they sing in German? It’s probably their pompous industrial sound and their imposing style that made them so successful. And the music industry of course that turned their German-speaking hindrance to advantage…
Whatever… Reise Reise is a great album, not the prodigy child which the fantastic “Mutter” probably had hoped for, but still a very agile industrial son…
