Tim has led the good life. He was in a tribute band to one of his favorite singers/bands. He lands the gig of a lifetime and then moves to another legendary Metal band in the form of ICED EARTH. He wants to branch out on his own for just a little bit and see if he capable of building something from the ground up. Now will this work or flat out suck.
The answer is that he has made the kick ass record of 2006 that’s gonna be tough to beat in this genre. Ok, it’s not the most original, but his heart and soul went into this and it shows. In true JUDAS PRIEST style, the opener “Scream Machine” begins with some seriously powerful musicianship across the board and in true Halford style, Tim screams the title and stretches it out. It’s fast and furious and the guitar shredding inserted in here is just Godly. “Save Me” may slow down just a little bit, but still deliver the goods in a hard and heavy fashion. “Dreams Come True” could be considered a power ballad from hell. It’s always in the heavy mode even though it’s supposed to be soft and tender. The tempo changes are plentiful on this debut offering ranging from fast to moderate. Tim definitely repeats himself musically on here, but that’s not a bad thing because this is what he does best.
I think I would like to hear what else he could do. Expand on his boundaries if you will. Nevertheless, this is one mean disc that is guaranteed to get the blood pumping the minute you insert it. Long live METAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Online September 19, 2006)
