Powergod - Bleed For The Gods (That's Metal-Lesson I)
There are almost more tribute-albums than bands out there, be it many bands worshipping one band or the other way round. Basically "Bleed For The Gods (That's Metal - Lesson I)", too, is such a tribute, but still it is different, in almost every way!

In the past I had met POWERGOD with a few reservations, but what the trio unleashes with "Bleed For The Gods (That's Metal - Lesson I)", puts all doubts of the raison d'Ítre to rest, not only because how they pay tribute, but especially WHOM! Contrary to the legions of other bands that feel entitled to show us their past and roots, POWERGOD cover only classics from the Eighties, many long thought lost or forgotten, hopefully showing the newer breed of Metal-fans, where everything basically has come from.

A finger-point to the bands featured here alone should already be enough to bring every fan of the original Eighties Metal to his/her knees in awe, also because the musical execution is great, possessing the kick that the originals sometimes had lacked because of sound. Add to that the chameleon-like voice of President Evil and both thumbs go up for sure!

This way tribute-albums not only make sense, but also lots of fun!
