ALBUM KEEPERS OF THE FLAME
LABEL FIGHTER RECORDS
OUT June 16th, 2020
OUR RATING 88/100
GREYHAWK are a well-known name on our pages.
A brilliant NWOTHM band but not only..power metal, shredding and, above all, a deeply own style.
They released their debut EP “Ride Out” in October 2018, and now they’re are ready to unleash on June 16th, via FIGHTER RECORDS, the debut full-lenght album entitled KEEPERS OF THE FLAME.
The first shot, after an intro, is FROZEN STAR, which starts with shredding guitar’s and roaring bass, all followed by a classic riff, grandiloquent vocals and solo parts always to remark.
An eighties attack in DROP THE HAMMER, with vocals on high tones; there is no lack of fast and powerful runaways, and blistering guitars’solos.
HALLS OF INSANITY is strong but less fast with a bit of melody, while in THE RISING SUN the rhythms decrease, reminding somethin’ of first SAXON when push less.
Amazing R.X.R.O., an instrumental jam with continuous evolutions, shredding wars, fast runaways and crushing solos.
Fresh DON’T WAIT FOR THE WIZARD, classic but enriched by VAN HALEN touch..one of our favs..a masterpiece.
In BLACK PEAK we can find the environment of DIO at times of HOLY DIVER and many different solutions while in MASTERS OF THE SKY all sounds great, a classic and squared tune.
On the same way OPHIDIAN THRONE while the more epic title track ends in the best way this great platter.
TO SUGGEST..ONE OF OUR HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR...YEAHHH!!!
