The Brains, Canada's most insane and undead psychobilly horror-punks are back with a vengeance and unquenchable thirst for new blood.

The band's fourth release, "Zombie Nation" is the band's best work to date. The release picks up improves where 2009's self-titled full length left off. Some of the best and biggest names in psychobilly and rockabilly lend their unique talents on this recording including Setin, Matt, and Andy from the legendary Mad Sin, Dan Deleon from Rezurex, and Richy from Blood Sucking Zombies From Outer Space.

The title of the album and artwork suggest it is filled with metal infused violence, but many of the songs are upbeat and more comparable to bands like the Clash, Ramones and Misfits rather than death metal gore. Of course, the band still speaks of the undead and eating brains for dinner, but many songs do so in the form of a story rather than a simple chorus of repetitive scary words. "Devil's Crossroads" speaks the tale of a sinner on the run from the devil ready to collect his soul. "Sweeter Than Wine" is a love tale between a zombie and blood and "Apres Cette Nuit" treats listeners to La Muerte singing in his native French language.

What is most notable about Zombie Nation is the musicianship which binds it together. Rene D La Muerte’s twang infused guitar tracks blend seamlessly with Colin the Dead's blistering stand-up (yes stand-up) bass stylings all the while held together by Franck O’Brains hard and fast drum beats. The range of upbeat tempos and melodies are present from start to finish, there is something for everyone on this album even the fair-weather psychobilly fan can enjoy.

I love the brains. this album is bad ass. I think colin the dead pulls everything in together just right. I saw them with the nekromantix over the summer and it was justcolin and fill ins on the other two, made me sad to not get to see the whole band but it still kicked ass. I love their song screaming, hands down favorite off the album. Glad i picked up the shirt too the artwork is baadass!

I hope to eventually see them some day in the future, but I really couldn't agree more! I can barely fault any of their releases and i really am impressed with colin's bass playing, especially on their latest song '6 Rounds' ... some of the bass segments on that song are just brilliant ...now i'm no bass expert but from what i can hear there are parts where he does a drag triplet then maybe a double slap n then back into a drag triplet and it just adds this brilliant element of percussion.
I really am excited for their next release coming in october...

If it's up to me, an intro isn't needed. It's nice after a few posts of course.
