BAND VOLTAX ALBUM NO RETREAT..YOU SURRENDER LABEL IRON SHIELD RECORDS RELEASE 14th April 2017
OUR RATING: 84/100 Voltax is one of Mexico’s traditional heavy metal bands with better national and international projection that this year celebrated its 10th anniversary. With a little delay we're listening to the fourth album of the band, called NO RETREAT..YOU SURRENDER, out from April 2017 via IRON SHIELD RECORDS (PURE STEEL GROUP).
Let's start from the end: VOLTAX confirmed their style and their highly class music: a band who learned the lesson from Hard’n’heavy masters but developing a deep own style.
After the intro, BROKEN WORLD starts speedy in classic metal's best tradition, putting in evidence the voice of JERRY.
Not less the next song, THE VOID WE RIDE, more epic with a a very inspired solo.
DEADLY GAMES is the third ace, while GO WITH ME starts in more thoughtful mood and goes on
with a rhythmic taunt.
STARLESS NIGHT, in our opinion, is one of the best tracks of the album; continuous changes of time and an high-class solo.
NIGHT LASTS FOREVER is a melodic interlude to introduce the more direct EXPLOTA.
Over 6 min duration for the awesome THE HERO with continuos changes of time: a song that explains clearly the ability of the band to know how to do.
This full-lenght ends with a smart cover of Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4".
An album that we suggest and a further proof of the quality of this band.
