LABEL Reaper Metal Productions
OUT April 3rd, 2020
OUR RATING 87/100
Fourth album by LADY BEAST, #nwothm band from US, entitled THE VULTURE’S AMULET, out on April 3rd on REAPER METAL PRODUCTIONS.
With a line-up which consists of Deborah Levine on vocals, Andy Ramage and Christopher Tritschler on guitars, Greg Colaizzi on bass and Adam Ramage on drums, LADY BEAST are ready to provide a confirm of their status..a smart traditional HM able to carry into the future the lesson of masters of genre.
METAL MACHINE is the first attack, direct, classic with Deborah ready to strike, guitar’s solo bites..no frills song, excellent start.
RUNES OF RUST develops well, with solid rhythm section, some epic droos, squared riff and again a brilliant solo.
In THE GIFT, a roaring bass and pressing drums open a song enriched by fancy twin guitars and a structure more complex.
Edgy riff in SACRIFICE TO THE UNSEEN, before direct BETRAYER, one of our favs.
We go on with THE CHAMPION, grandiloquent in first slice, which grows second after second.
We can’t find a step back, not even in instrumental TRANSCEND THE BLADE with its mad runaways, or in THE VULTURE’S AMULET, with a maiden’s touch and vocals to remark, a real added value,
The last shot to end in the best way this brilliant platter is VOW OF THE VALKYRIE, where they ride hard.
TO SUGGEST..AS WELL AS THEIR ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY!!
