ALBUM GUARDIAN OF THE FIRE
LABEL SELF RELEASE
OUR RATING 81/100
Canadian HM band RAIDER from Waterloo is ready to unleash a full-length album entitled “Guardian of The Fire” on March 20, 2020.
The eight-track platter is a smart blend of thrash and blackened vocals.
Comparing it to the 2018 demo “Urge to Kill” they brought back a lot of band’s trademarks adding so much more.
Guardian of the Fire is surely more aggressive and is just going to hit way harder.
In the veins of Sepultura, Annihilator, and Skeletonwitch, RAIDER is one of the underground thrash/death bands to keep an eye on in 2020.
Since first BOUND BY NO FATE, they provided an hearty thrash with effective vocals; all sounds pressing, enhanced by roaring bass, hitting drums and sharp riffs.
NO SIGN OF THE DAWN goes on in the same way, with a less fast second part before growl vocals make the song wilder.
ENDLESS VENGEANCE is the perfect title for this song..relentless thrash with a power-groove touch!
GUARDIAN OF THE FIRE is even more powerful, with a technical and fast solo to remark, while INFERNAL JUSTICE, after a long instrumental intro, is another right shot.
RAVENOUS HYDRA is a great example of squared classic thrash, a bit darker, before developing itself in a real kick in the teeth!
Last two shots are OFFERING OF SOULS, a long thrash runaway with great changes of time, and squared DESTROYER, that ends in the best way this great album.
TO SUGGEST..ANOTHER RIGHT SHOT FROM CANADA!!
