BAND BATTLE RAIDER
ALBUM BATTLE RAIDER
LABEL FIGHTER RECORDS
OUR RATING 87/100
"It's amazing, with the blink of an eye you finally see the light" says AEROSMITH almost 25 years ago..and we see the light for the future of CLASSIC HEAVY METAL listening to the second full-lenght of the band based in MEXICO.
Let's start to end..an awesome work, a motley combination result a great talent.
The first song is FLYING FINGERS with shreddin' start, runnin' drums and epic voice before developing in somethin'classic.
Next the title track, almost 6 min duration, is an awesome ace.
HARD FLYER starts with an intro of suspense before evolving in somethin' speed, or classical, or neoclassic..amazing!
ATLANTEANS OF GOLD takes inspiration from IRON MAIDEN but with a deeply own style.
EARLY FANTASY reminds us somethin' more epic, in the way of masters as CIRITH UNGOL.
A great bass intro for the instrumental TARTAN PIPER ALPHA, more progressive..a track to love!
This album ends with two iron in the fire..COMMANDER and A SIOUX PRAYER, that reminds us the latin roots of the band.
Lastly, what can we say..an album to buy!
