AllMusic Review by

Perhaps influenced by Iron Maiden's "The Trooper" and "Run to the Hills," or possibly Anthrax's "Indians," Riot's Brethren of the Long House goes a step further and dramatizes the thoughts of Native Americans as well as the soldiers who questioned the senseless battles as they fought. The music is run-of-the-mill late-'80s metal. A noble and respectable effort, although the band sounds a little distant for such intense and dramatic subject matter.
