ALBUM CRUEL MAGIC
LABEL METAL BLADE RECORDS
OUT 2018 - Sept 7th
OUR RATING 90/100
Honestly, it's not easy when you want to talk about about new album of one of your favourite NWOBHM band, but we'll try to be objective...CRUEL MAGIC is literally amazing!!
Ten song in several format (next week we'll talking about the fancy box set that METAL BLADE packed for fans!) with an high level production which enhances complex structures trademark of the band and also vocals, this time definitely starring.
Changes ot time, runaways leaded by killer guitars' team TIPPINS/RAMSEY, the incredible job of rhythm section ENGLISH/TAYLOR, and last but not least BRIAN ROSS on vocals, a shaman able to guide the band towards several shores.
It's unnecessary talking about one song or other..it's an album all to enjoy, both when they increase speed or slow down!
If really we must remember any songs, among others, the first INTO THE MOUTH OF ETERNITY, LEGIONS HELLBOUND and the title track but..believe us..the level is always high!
