LABEL RELICS FROM THE CRYPT
OUT July 30th, 2021
OUR RATING 90/100
RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, a sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS, is proud to present a reissue of the killer self-titled debut album from Belgium’s BREATHLESS on CD and vinyl LP formats, originally out in 1985 on GIGAMETAL.
Nine songs in this brilliant “one and only” album opened by NOBODY’S PERFECT, where roaring bass and fast drummin’, introduce a brilliant track son of first PRIESTS, where first metal drops are mixed with seventies heavy rock heritages.
An amazing shot enriched by brilliant solo parts where traditional HM, seventies vibes and punky attitude live together in perfect harmony.
HELL’S FEVER is another gem where we can feel influences from first SCORPIONS of ULI JOHN ROTH’s era, while LOST TALES OF REALITY is amazing too; in addition to above mentioned influences, we can add also a clear epic flavour.
Closer to traditional HM BRING ME BACK HOME, where vocals provides many solutions, from medium tones to highest, son of more fresh NWOBHM vibes.
Fast old-school speed Hm in the title track while THE NIGHT CRUSADER, after an arpeggio intro, grows with U.F.O. influences.
Two brilliant shots are DEVIL’S SEED ON HER BODY, where KING DIAMOND drops meet doom, and more traditional ON THE WINGS OF THE DRAGON, before an outro ends in the best way a reissue that we suggest without hesitation.
