ALBUM HELL ON EARTH
LABEL Pure Steel Records
OUT May 29th, 2020
OUR RATING 87/100
Since their debut “The Chain Goes On”, out in 2014, ANCILLOTTI from Northern Italy are with Pure Steel and now they’re ready to unleash their third best, “Hell On Earth”.
Founded by the brothers Sandro "Bid" on bass and Daniele "Bud", singer of Italian classic metal legend Strana Officina, as well as son Brian on drums, the family project featuring guitarist "Ciano" Toscani has been dedicated to classic sounds since 2009.
HELL ON EARTH is another brilliant shot and, when you buy a new album by ANCILLOTTI, you are sure to find somethin’ proud of 80’s roots but projected towards the future.
FIGHTING MAN is the first ace, so classic and clear with dynamics drums and roaring bass helped by classy voice of BUD, edgy riffs and a blistering solo by CIANI TOSCANI.
Not least next REVOLUTION and FIREWIND, with a touch of melody provided by vocals and great changes of time.
WE ARE COMING starts grandiloquent with the mood of first SAXON, providing good musicality when it needs.
Powerful next BLESSED BY FIRE while BROKEN ARROW is the a song with wide-ranging.
They back to push in ANOTHER WORLD while FRANKESTEIN is a great trip, opened by a storyteller and followed by a strong texture.
TILL THE END, followed by a relentless drums, is the song that ends in the best way this brilliant platter.
We can feel that production on this album has a lot of power and exalts their trademark riffs, the iconic voice of BUD, all enhanced by a top level rhythm section.
NO DOUBT..TO SUGGEST!! ONE OF OUR HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR!! YESSS!!!
