80's Metal legends kick out another infectious jam. Founding member Juan Garcia and co. let the shit hit the fan here with their latest product. Shredding riffs are exposed with "Avenger". Now this is Metal my friends. Hard, powerful and fast is the way to go here. New vocalist Bruce Hall shrieks his voice like Halford when he screams out AVENGEEEEEEERR! I'll be damned if this isn't classic Metal in the making.
Right from the get go, you are kicked in the balls and punched in the face. Once that is over, you are now basically being told to sit down, shut the hell up and listen. Bruce's vocals are hard at work from beginning to end. Don't worry, he has plenty of balls behind his voice and doesn't sound like Halford except when he screams. "Earth Under Lucifer" is packed with thunderous drumming and more riffs that will make the new kids in the scene take notice and learn what they are missing.
Each track here is catchy as hell and now with better sound technology the band brings their 80's sound to a new generation with some new tricks up their sleeve. Trying to pick out a favourite here is like trying to decide what festival to go to: "Wacken" or "Bang Your Head" (Easy decision! "Bang Your Head" all the way! - Alex). I can't decide here. This CD is lethal and contagious. You are guaranteed to head bang and thrash around your house until the band plays live near you.
This is a great way to relieve your stress. Pop this in and let it all out. Another fine product from a band who doesn't disappoint. (Online September 8, 2003)
