Finally it has arrived! The long anticipated new album of Wichita's Epic Metal-godz. And nothing has really changed. Their original, odd style still is the same in 2001. The production is very rough and oozes with the flair of the Eighties, which clearly is intentional.
What we have here now is an Epic Metal-fireworks-display of the highest order as we may witness only all too seldom. MANILLA ROAD are true masters of capturing the listener. Everything is very variable and excels in extensive instrumental passages. Just like we know them! The vocals of Mark Shelton still have more charisma as most young singers of today's up-and-coming acts together! In some parts his voice is really harsh and sometimes even reaches Death Metal! MANILLA ROAD has managed to present us with a truly outstanding comeback.
With this godly album in their baggage they hopefully finally get the acceptance they are deserving for so many years now! Pray to the gods that they may bless us with a MANILLA ROAD-headliner-show! So support this exceptional band and buy the new album! May the gods of light be with you!
