By A Customer on 2 Aug. 2002
Format: Audio CD
This band are one of the latest bands to be touted by producer Ross Robinson who is currently overseeing their new album (although he doesn't appear on this one in question) However if you are expecting these guys to sound like ANY of the bands he's produced in the past (Korn, Limp Bizkit, Machine Head, etc.) you will be disappointed. The Blood Brothers sound is a strange mixture of blood curdling screams (courtesy of the dual vocalists), rockabilly guitars and schizoid arrangements. Songs whiz by in a flash before you get the chance to register the fact that they've mangled you're brain. This whole album clocks in at a whisker under 25 minutes in total. However, this is a far from bad album. I loved this simply because it was different and every song is never long enough to lose your attention. The singers must also be praised for the vocal talents, switching from child-like warbles to blistering screeches in a heartbeat. The upcoming album should be a belter and this serves as a spicy little taster.

woahh, from the very first powerchord your held, in awirl of avantgarde craziness and the most craziest of timeings and styles (including bossanova!)this has to be the best thing since at the drive in.Ross robinson seems to have a knack for the next big thing and i dont think the blood brothers will let him down.

HASH(0x91c29120) out of 5 stars this might be biased because i love the blood brother so damn much!!!! 23 July 2005
By N. Forte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm sorry but as anybody knows....the blood brothers is an acquired taste. if you don't believe me, then get whatever album you have obtained of theirs and try to play it to your comrades. chances are most are too distracted by the intensity of both the musical and vocal content to actually give them a chance. truth is they are really talented musicians, and cheers to a band that has a true punk sound: a sound of rebellion. The material on March on Electric Children is as good as any of their other albums, though the sound quality is somewhere between Adultery is Ripe (so many highs) and Burn Piano Island (Ross Robinson's expertise proved rewarding). This album features some of Cody's best work on the guitar, listen to "Junkyard J....", the self-titled song, siamese gun, or the bridge riff in "Mr. Electric Ocean" to see what I mean. There are many classic B.B. moments on this album, along with a few electionic surprises like "Kiss of the Octopus" or the ballroom dance piano number that closes the album "American Vultures". This album is like anything else they've released; fans will love it, haters will hate it. i'm a lover and not a hater, so i'm right at home listening to what real punk should sound like.

HASH(0x91b4fd74) out of 5 stars This Album Is Tattooed Inside Of My Eyes... 20 Aug. 2008
By winkingtiger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the most brilliant punk albums I've ever heard, "March On Electric Children" is my second favorite Blood Brothers album, right behind their swan song, "Young Machetes." I'm not sure what the other reviewer was talking about below, I think the production is wonderful on this album, making songs that could have seemed samey all have distinct personalities. Every instrument sounds glittering and wonderful, except for a few intentionally lo-fi moments...

The Blood Brothers are certainly an acquired taste; at this point in their career (this was their 2nd full-length CD), the vocals are almost 100% screamo, the songs are short, fast and dense (except the wonderful piano-and-screaming-only finale "American Vultures" which sounds like it was done in one take with no overdubs).

But is it "Punk" in the traditional sense? The lyrics are poetic, stream-of-consciousness, and full of shock value (I can't even quote my favorite lines here!) The arrangements are ultra-complex, full of maniac drums, polyrhythmic guitar parts, thundering, ever-changing bass lines, and Morgan Henderson's ovverdubbed keyboard sounds, which are hilarious and add the right touch to songs such as "Mr. Electric Ocean."

My favorite cuts have to be the manic and insane "Kiss Of The Octopus"...the rip-roaring "Siamese Gun" (about a surrealistic trial) and the rousing opener "Birth Skin/Death Leather." The Blood Brothers can fit more energy and ideas into two minutes then most groups can think of for a whole album...

If you can get through the dense Art-Punk arrangements, intentionally in-your-face vocals (remember that Rock Music has a great history of screaming), and opaque lyrics, you're in for a fascinating treat: an album that never ever grows old, no matter how much you listen to it, one that will make you laugh and cringe, and everything in between. Try Something New! xo

HASH(0x91a3021c) out of 5 stars we're married to the vultures... 23 Mar. 2006
By Dr Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I gotta admit that I was kind of disappointed when I first got this album because of the sound being so terrible, of course the Blood Brothers turn everything louder than everything else so there's going to be a great deal of sonic murk, but the guitar sound is awful. The drums are crisp and the bass sounds fine but whenever the guitars kick in it goes a bit haywire. Of course you may find this a turn on if you're into 'underground' type stuff, but after the proficient, clear production on 'this adultery is ripe' I just thought this was a case of wasted potential.

That said, this is a great album despite only being 24 or so minutes and 9 tracks (this ain't prog rock..) and while some of the songs blend a little due to similar riffs, the lyrics to each are distinctive and there are some great pop hooks (oh no!) hidden in the emo/thrash/grind/whatever chaos.

One track disobeys everything I said before by being precisely as clear as it needs to be and by sounding nothing like any of the other tracks. "American Vultures", featuring the two vocalists screaming urgently over a pounding piano line, brings to mind Birthday Party-era Nick Cave. It's one of the best Blood Brothers tracks and points towards the 'cabaret' elements of 'Crimes'. But I guess that's not a cool album cause it's on a major label, right?
