Sebastian Bach

Bring 'Em Bach Alive

Review by Brian Angotti

From Skid Row to solo man, Mr. Bach does the transition with great ease. The first new music from Sebastian in years provides the same flair that was once Skid Row. Bring 'em Bach Alive, rightfully titled, is a combination of classic Skid songs mixed with the new. The album was co-produced by Bach and Michael Wagner of Skid Row, Metallica, and Ozzy fame.

Sebastian has enlisted Richie Scarlet ex-Ace Frehley (Guitars), Jimmy Flemion of the Frogs (Guitars), a man only known as Larry (Bass), and Mark McConell (Drums) to help conquer the world of rock once more.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: The Early Years Volume 3 at

Track by Track Review
Rock N Roll
This a great album starter. The lead in drum solo is a fine piece of work, and it sets the pace for the rest of the album.
Done Bleeding
"Done Bleeding" is something straight off Skid Row's Subhuman Race album. This up-tempo ballad turns into a full force rocker.
Superjerk, Superstar, Supertears
A unique track, this one is very different for Bach, probably because it was written by Flemion. Bach does it give his own style and charm, though.
This one is a punk flavored rocker also written by Flemion.
My assumption of the meaning of this track, after reading the lyrics, is that Sebastian is sending a counterpunch to his old friends in Skid Row.
Slave To The Grind
"Slave To The Grind" is the first classic Skid track on the album. Although it does sound relatively close to the original, Bach has turned the speed up a few notches.
"Frozen" is one of my all-time favorite Skid Row songs because it was something different than everyone else was doing.
18 & Life
This was probably Skid Row's most famous song. The video played constantly on MTV and quickly made the band superstars.
Beat Yourself Blind
This one is a groove oriented song with Bach's trademark vocals.
Riot Act
"Riot Act" is another punk seasoned rocker and yet again Bach has kicked the speed up a notch or two.
"Mudkicker" is a well written song with heavy guitar riffs.
In A Darkened Room
Another one of my all-time favorites, this song has so much feeling and emotion.
Money Business/Godzilla
A heavy rocker with all the essential metal sounds. It includes the classic BOC jam "Godzilla".
The Most Powerful Man In The World
A slower number, this one showcases Bach's vocal ability.
I Remember You
A classic love ballad from his Skid Row days, Bach keeps this true to the original.
Youth Gone Wild
The Skid Row theme song and now Bach's, this track sums up everything Bach and Friends is about rock and roll and the youth gone wild!.
