BAND METAL MIRROR
ALBUM VODKA HELL AND ANGELS
LABEL DOWNFALL RECORDS
OUR RATING 82/100
In the deep underground of NWOBHM movement, there are bands such as METAL MIRROR that would have been worthy of a different success.
Disbanded in 1981 after one single and one demo, reformed in 2006, they released live and compilations between 2006 and 2017 but only in 2017 was out as digital the first long-awaited full-lenght with the rockin' title VODKA HELL AND ANGELS.
For a few days is finally out the cd version through DOWNFALL RECORDS.
The band of Cameron Vegas is surely son of bloody seventies Hard Rock, not only British, and of first years of NWOBHM.
If ONE WAY TICKET TO HELL reminds us somethin' from first TYGERS OF PAN TANG, I LOVE HALLOWEEN is more lilting but powerful too.
Closer to Hard Rock the title track, enhanced by dirty vocals of singer Cameron Vegas, and DEVIL IN THE GLASS.
DUSK TILL DAWN is more squared, a great song before LONG BLACK TRAIN, a stunning hard'n'roll runaway!
More dirty and bluesy SLOW GAME, son of QUIREBOYS and BLACKFOOT, but THE GATES OF HELL is surely one of our favs, darker, with a long solo to remind.
If OUTLAW RIDER is more metallized, LIAR KILLER, LITTLE DAMN PUNK..and MILLION DOLLAR ITCH are surely three great songs full of energy!!
NWOBHM ALIVE AND KICKIN!
