ALBUM IN THE END
LABEL PURE STEEL RECORDS
OUT Sept 25th, 2020
OUR RATING 83/100
BYFIST, classic HM band from San Antonio, Texas, have been active since mid-80s and released a 7” single, two EP’s and a compilation album.
Now they are ready to unleash their first full length, out on Pure Steel on Sept 25th, 2020.
"In The End"provides classic US Metal with high pitched vocals and unrelenting pounding double bass.
The first shot is UNIVERSAL METAL, anthemic song, classic with no frills; the influence of JUDAS PRIEST is clear but the style is absolutely own and enriched by epic drops.
The song is enhanced by squared and scratchin’ riffs and gorgeous solo parts.
The title track is another ace, between priests’ sound and somethin’more traditional.
They go on with brilliant UNCONSCIOUS SUICIDE, while GUARANTEED DEATH is truly different,a more rich song, full of several solutions.
WITH THIS NEEDLE...is darker and shows vocals which hit us, while SHIP OF ILLUSION provides two sides, both dreamin’ and powerful.
EPITAPH is awesome, son of priests, enriched by well-groomed vocals; solo parts are brilliant again, while SCATTERED WITS is the best way to end this platter.
BYFIST..another brilliant album to suggest out on PURE STEEL RECORDS
