ALBUM DESERT WARRIOR
LABEL Dying Victims Productions
OUT Feb 26th, 2021
OUR RATING 85/100
After positive received TIME TO STRIKE, Dying Victims Productions is ready to present a brand-new EP from Canada Traditional HM band SANDSTORM, entitled “Desert Warrior”, available on Feb 26th, 2021 on CD, 12” vinyl and cassette formats.
In the spring of 2020 DYING VICTIMS unleashed first SANDSTORM beast, the debut album “Time to Strike,
“, previously self-released in 2019.
Four tracks for 21 minutes in “Desert Warrior”, thematically unified by classic late ‘60s / early ‘70s sci-fi tropes with the power-trio focused on riffs and atmosphere.
The title-track starts epic and lilting, a fancy tune with balanced vocals; we can feel, at times, the inspiration of RJ DIO and a seventy touch, all enhanced by gorgeous solo parts.
A touch of classic HM in following EAT ME ALIVE while EVIL WINS goes on grandiloquent and epic, with a brilliant riffing less thoughtful.
More structured last POWER OF THE PYRAMIDS.
TO SUGGEST WITHOUT HESITATION..A GREAT STARTER IN WAITIN’ FOR THE NEXT FULL-LENGHT!!
