ALBUM STRIKE HARD
LABEL PITCH BLACK RECORDS
OUT Sept 4th, 2020
OUR RATING 85/100
AIRFORCE have joined forces with Pitch Black Records for the release of the band's new album, their second full-length since reforming in 2016.
The new AIRFORCE studio album entitled “Strike Hard" will be out on Sept 4th 2020 on CD and Digital.
The band was originally formed in 1986 by Tony Hatton (bass), Chop Pitman (guitars) and drummer Doug Sampson, known as early ember of IRON MAIDEN.
The AIRFORCE line-up now includes singer Flavio Lino; “Strike Hard" features also guest appearances, starting with Paul Di' Anno and vocalist Ivan Giannini (Vision Divine).
The CD version of the album features a bonus track which is a cover of "Faith Healer", a classic song by Sensational Alex Harvey Band; this recording includes a guest appearance by the original SAHB guitarist Zal Cleminson.
The first shot is FIGHT, a Maiden’s mood attack strong and grandiloquent, brilliant, fresh and embracing with inspired solo parts; more squared following DIE FOR YOU and SON OF THE DAMNED, which convince us.
THE REAPER flows well; top quality classic metal, with well-groomed vocals and backing vocals, and solo parts are again to remark.
After pressing FINEST HOUR, DON’T LOOK IN HER EYES is hard as a rock.
There’s also space for I FEEL YOUR PAIN, strong and powerful, and WARGAMES, which provides more solutions.
After BAND OF BROTHERS, it’s time for no-frills THE WAR INSIDE which ends in the best way this great platter.
