BAND HELL FIRE
ALBUM FREE AGAIN
OUT 2017 (Aug 17th)
LABEL SELF P.
OUR RATING: 83/100
After the great debut METAL MASSES in 2016, from mid August is out the second chapter of the NWOTHM prodigy from SAN FRANCISCO.
Another self production, in the hope of signing with a label that believes in the potential of this great band.
Let's start from the end: a great album for a band who learned the lesson from the Hard’n’heavy masters but looking to the future.
So you can find traditional sound with modern production, not impersonators of the glories of the past.
In our opinion we can find RAINBOW influences in songs as the title-track and WHEELS OF FATE, somethin' from IRON MAIDEN but also somethin' speed in RAVEN or EXCITER style, or somethin from classic NWOBHM in GRIM REAPER mood as THE DEALER.
END OF THE DAYS is the surprise of this album, more melodic and emotional in the way of first SCORPIONS.
The "thrashy" side of the band in this chapter is a bit more nuanced, clear sign of an evolution and of a style more established.
