BAND TOLEDO STEEL
ALBUM NO QUARTER
OUT 2018 -May 11th
LABEL DISSONANCE PRODUCTIONS
OUR RATING 90/100
After two great EP's, changes of line up which not offered stability, a record deal that never shows..next things started changing and it was signed a record deal with an amazing label as DISSONANCE PRODUCTIONS, so close with UK old/new traditional HM bands and now we're spinning the first full lenght of the band called NO QUARTER, out for a few days.
Eight top level songs, no doubt where influence of JUDAS PRIEST is clear, the whole thing developing a deeply own style recognizable everywhere.
Almost seven mins for the first song called BEHOLD THE MACHINE, never boring and full of surprises.
Amazing vocals of RICH RUTTER, enhanced by pounding drummin' of MATT DOBSON, enriched by recurring and inspired solos of TOM POTTER, at times overflowing, and JOSH HAYSOM.
NO QUARTER is the well-known excellent single while CEMETERY LAKE, is another classic HM shot with a sinister flavour, never obvious.
VISIONS IN THE FIRE is smart, a wider song, while SLIGHT OF THE SNIPER is more "rocky".
ROCK NIGHTS is a perfect anthem for live shows, a song so perfect, while HEAVY METAL HEADACHE is another gem, a classic kick in the teeth!
The last shot is WHEN THE NIGHT DRAWS IN, maybe less fast but equally awesome!
If you love best tradition of UK Metal, this is a must have album..no doubt!!
