BAND Forsaken Age

ALBUM HEAVY METAL NIGHTMARE

LABEL PURE STEEL PUBLISHING

OUT Nov 6th, 2020

OUR RATING 85/100


FORSAKEN AGE are a classic HM band with stunning female vocalist from Auckland, New Zealand active since 2009.

In this time some material was recorded but only one album was released so far.

"Heavy Metal Nightmare" is their second work, available on PURE STEEL PUBLISHING on Nov 6th, 2020.

The band is focused on catchy songwriting with remarkable hooks, a great blend of German 80s Metal and NWOBHM but, the most important thing, developing an own style.

DEATH TERROR is the first shot, opened by a grandiloquent intro, with a classic riffing and a singer that leaves her mark, enhanced by drums, both squared and dynamics, driving bass lines and solo parts to remark.

Classic gallop in RAVEN’S CRY, bit darker, which shows a band with personality; as special guest is involved legend TIM “RIPPER” OWENS.

In RIDE ON they shows slow rhythms in the first slice before exploding in a old school long gallop, followed by an hot and inspired solo.

They run in FIRE IN OUR HEARTS, where CHRISSY SCARFE shows several sides of her talent, while BLOOD MAGICK is a more rockin’ episode.

They go on with IRON OVERLORD, a great example of powerful and squared classic HM, and with the title track, strong and biting.

In RUNNING IN THE DARK all sounds great, the band seems truly inspired, while HAIL AND FAREWELL is more lilting and doom in the first slice, before running and exploding in the second one, with brilliant solo parts to underscore.

After GUARDIANS OF THE TOMB, strong TIME WARRIOR ends in the best way an album which we suggest without hesitation!!
