BAND Death Dealer
ALBUM CONQUERED LANDS
LABEL Steel Cartel Records
OUT Nov 13th, 2020
OUR RATING 83/100
DEATH DEALER are an amazing project which involves SEAN PECK on vocals, STU MARSHALL and ROSS THE BOSS on guitars, Mike LePond on bass and STEVE BOLOGNESE on drums.
This is the 3rd chapter after WAR MASTER and HALLOWED GROUND, out in 2013 and 2015.
With this platter they provide a great blend of classic HM and US Power and we are sure which you’ll appreciate.
The first shot is SORCERER SUPREME, enhanced by relentless drumming, driving bass lines and strong riffing; after a break there’s time for rich solo parts well-groomed, divided between two guitarists.
Anthemic EVERY NATION (WORLD OF METAL) is so classic and Priests’ influenced..a grandiloquent tune followed by POWER HM of BEAUTY AND THE BLOOD.
We can’t find fillers..RUNNING WITH THE WOLVES and THE ERETIC HAS RETURNED are another confirms.
The track opens with the right dose of emphasis, evoking magic atmospheres of RJ DIO, before growing second after second and running in the last slice.
We feel epic vibes of early MANOWAR in HAIL TO THE KING, while SLAY OR BE SLAIN sounds great without hitting us.
They go on with powerful FAITH UNDER FIRE, followed by touching 22 GONE; heavy BORN TO BEAR THE CROWN ends in the best way this great album.
KEEPING THE FLAG HIGH OF TRUE CLASSIC METAL!!!!
