2014, Once again Julian Angel's Beautiful Beast has taken a ride on the time machine back to 1989. Their third album KICK DOWN THE BARRICADES sounds as old fashioned as any hair metal fan would expect it to be. Just the way they did on predecessors ADULT ORIENTED CANDY (2011) and CALIFORNIA SUNTAN (2012) Beautiful Beast have refused to add any modern elements to their songs and thereby manifest their reputation of being Hair Metal traditionalists - or retards as other people may have it. KICK DOWN THE BARRICADES sounds rawer and edgier than the band's previous records and left room for spontaneity and improvisation even in an all so sterile studio environment. Beautiful Beast mastermind Julian Angel is a German rock musician with, by now, five albums to his record as well as a German Rock Award nomination for ´Best Guitarist` in 2000. Julian has scored a #8 chart album in Austria as songwriter for rockabilly group The Monroes in 2013.
