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.

Almost impossible to describe in words the revolution that this debut album brought both in musical and lyricist trends… Senser here blend so many different styles and influences that “Stacked Up” can’t be really classified nowhere else except utterly crossover.

My name is Crash – side winding I flash like a burning flare
don’t look away ’cause I’m already in there
i’ve been there – wherever you stare
i’ve been there longer than you care to remember
