ALBUM AGAINST THE WORLD
OUT July 16th, 2021
OUR RATING 84/100
Formed in Santiago, Chile in 2010, BÓLIDO, well known on our pages, self-released their debut album "We Are Rock" in 2014.
In 2017 a step ahead when the band signed to Fighter Records, which released their second album "Heavy Bombers".
After that, they started working on their next album "Against the World", already as a trio, which was completed in early 2021.
BOLIDO are a band rich of talent and not easy to classify: Classic HM but with many influences, from Hard Rock to shredding parts.
You can feel it since first AGAINST THE WORLD, a great example of classic sounds son of Maiden and Accept, with a great job made by rhythm section.
They go on with MIG VALLEY where drums looks more dynamic, bass is roaring, riffs are embracing, and solo parts are brilliant.
TIME TO BE YOURSELF is one of our favorite, while ANGEL IN BLACK AND WHITE shows Classic Metal sounds enhanced by bluesy and shred drops in the solo.
BHVF shows the continuous wish to get out of usual habits, followed by brilliant IN DREAMS.
At a fast pace TURBO, followed by HEARTBREAKER; over 22 mins for the masterpiece WHITE HELL, that’s worth the entire disc.
TO SUGGEST WITHOUT HESITATION.
