BAND UNREAL TERROR ALBUM THE NEW CHAPTER
OUT 06th OCTOBER 2017 LABEL JOLLY ROGER RECORDS
OUR RATING 80/100
Born in 1984 under the will of Mario Di Dontato, Enio Nicolini and Silvio Canzano (guitar, bass and drums, respectively), from the ashes of cult band UT with italian lyrics only, UNREAL TERROR is a well-known classic hard'n'heavy band of 80's, among band as STRANA OFFICINA, DEATH SS, SABOTAGE, VANEXA, VANADIUM.
In 1989 Unreal Terror broke down definitely but an unexpected reunion is reality in 2012 (with Enio's son, Iader, on guitar). "The New Chapter" contains 10 brand new songs whose style echoes classic HM tradition, but with a modern perspective.
This platter starts in melodic mood with ORDINARY KING, intersped with modern phrases; honest a tune not totally compelling.
Surely better TIME BOMB, more powerful and fast; on the same way ALL THIS TIME, pressing since the beginning.
THE FALL is maybe a step behind, a bit modern, with melodic singing and determined riffs.
With THE THREAD the inspiration goes back to being at high level; a lilting and enjoing HR song.
ONE MORE CHANCE develops itself in somethin' structured but anyway sparkling.
TRICKLESS OF TIME, IT'S A SHADOW and LOST CAUSE are heavier and this is the our favourite side of the band before WESTERN SKIES, that ends worthily this album.
A great album to connect the past of the band with the future.
