OUR RATING 84/100
ANTIOCH, well known traditional HM band, was out two days ago with a new work, V, an Ep which consists of five songs available eon IRON SHIELD.
Formed in Emeryville, Ontario by a group of Judas Priest fans, since their founding, Antioch has self-released three full-length albums and an EP.
In 2020, after a three-year absence, the drum throne was beseeched once again by Brendan Rhyno. Rejoining his bard brethren, vocalist Nick Allaire and his brother Jordan, the trio conjured the fifth chapter in Antioch’s discography, “Antioch V”.
HANG THE EAGLE starts with a powerful attack, helped by pounding drums and roaring bass and vocals on high pitches, son of heavier JUDAS PRIEST.
ON A LEDGE is another classic shot that reminds 80’s metal, followed by A FACADE..punky in the first slice but with a great structure.
You’ll appreciate DEMON WICK while faster CLOVEN HOOVES ends in the best way this EP with its Official Motörhead/punk flavour.
