ALBUM MIND FREEZE
LABEL SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS
OUR RATING 90/100
Our readers know how much we love HAUNT, the creation by TREVOR WILLIAM CHURCH, since first Ep LUMINOUS EYES.
A project which grows year after year, already out with three full-lenght, two EPs and two split..in only 4 years!
MIND FREEZE is the new full-lenght out on Jan 10th, again on SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS, and, in our opinion, is the best thing put togheter by TREVOR and his mates.
Since LIGHT THE BEACON they starts with a classic metal song, that sounds fresh, before HEARTS ON FIRE, with pressing drums and roaring bass that open a lilting song with a solo part to remind.
The title track is another right shot while anthemic DIVIDE AND CONQUER is a great mix of power and melody, reminding us somethin’ from one of our NWOTHM band such as MIDNIGHT FORCE.
The side B of the vinyl show SAVIORS OF MAN, with a great structure, classic but not vintage.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT is one of our favs..a mad run with great twin guitar harmonies and stunning solo parts.
HAVE NO FEAR, after a grandiloquent intro, starts with the heavier riff of the album and an awesome gallop.. another right shot.
We go on with fast ON THE STAGE before VOYAGER that ends in best way this brilliant job.
A must-have..surely one of our highlights of 2020!!
