Not a band I've really been drawn to in the past, but the new album has some nice reviews, so I listened to a few tracks. I won't be rushing into buying the CD after previous, rash purchases, but this sounds like really good Heavy Metal. Good tunes, some great guitar solos, what's not to like? Well, the vocals might be a bit of an acquired taste, slightly gravelly (reminding me a tiny bit of Wild Dogs - Reign of Terror at times).

 

Couple of example tracks, but the standard seems pretty consistent throughout:

You approve? :lol:

 

Honestly, this sounds like one of the best albums of the year so far. Just really really good songs. I will re-evaluate beforre taking the plunge though...

Nah ... I can't listen to Bruce's screeching any more, it's like fingernails on a blackboard. The songs on this one sound awesome. Really really good!

Fair enough, but do me a favour and if you get time, give this another try. There are some really good songs here, maybe not completely immediate, but good all the same and some excellent guitar solos. Honest. :)

Sorry mate - good solo but up til that it sounded like 2nd rate Edguy to me :-(

 

& a really lazy chorus full of ohhhs.

 

I'll pass again

 

Think I'm with Glen on that one ... fast doesn't mean good and I also find the drumming on the track massively irritating. Solo is pretty sweet though.

No, you won't ... you'll do what you always do and buy the CD before re-evaluating :) This one is definitely a 'guilty pleasure' for me ... I may even buy it!

Final verdict on this one is that it's pretty good, but not that good. I like 3 or 4 songs, overall it's a bit samey, but some of the songs do stand out. My favourites:
