Lizzy Borden - Deal With The Devil
I wouldn't have thought that, as most reunions more or less fail miserably. Good ole Lizzy has managed to take up with "Deal With The Devil", where he had left off with his old classics, sounding neither old-fashioned nor too modern.

Already the opening "There Will Be Blood Tonight" showcases swift US-Melodic Metal, with the suiting lyrics, hehe. "Zanzibar" starts out with oriental/Indian melody and keeps that touch, giving the song a very interesting atmosphere. Contrary to that one, a track like "We Only Come Out At Night" features a far more modern guitar, but without sounding trendy or in any other way negative.

Sure, not all that glitters is gold, but the mentioned songs plus the up-tempo-Metalian "The World Is Mine" clearly show that LIZZY BORDEN is back - in style!
