ALBUM MELT IT DOWN
LABEL SELF RELEASE
OUR RATING 85/100
After an EP out in 2016, on ast Dec 7th TANTRUM, NWOTHM band from Scotland, were out with the debut full-lenght called MELT IT DOWN.
Surely an interesting album by a high-level band!
The first shot is UNDERDOG that, after a fancy arpeggio, esplodes with a strong riffing enhanced by great vocals contributions and inspired solo parts.
CLASSIC METAL, surely son of the past but absolutely suited to modern day!
NEW WORLD ORDER starts with a compelling and powerful riff, while HAMMER INTO ANVIL is a bit darker.
HERO hits us for its 80's flavour and the title track goes on in the same way, with solo parts again to remind.
NWOBHM is the fastest song of the platter and it's an anthem that shows clearly trademarks of the band!
MARCH OF THE DAMNED starts in solo and it's one of our favs, with guitars able to phrase at best.
LAST MAN STANDING is another ace, while THE TYRANT is a strong and determined song.
WIZARDS WARNING is another effective truck that ends in the best way this great album!
