Fracture - Law After Law
"Defendant, you are accused of having produced and released a straight-forward party-album. Do you have to add anything?" - "No, Your Honour, I am guilty as charged."

This could be a rough description of the first album of Mainz' FRACTURE! It's a great, straight album without any bombastic keyboards and tralala-chorus-elements. No dripping heroic pathos, the music just simply kicks your ass! This band is no bloody newcomer (I've already seen them in 93 and really enjoyed them) and plays straight 80s-Metal in tradition of ACCEPT and TRANCE and convinces with its simple, but not boring material.

The vocals will be the decisive factor, because the vocalist sounds a lot like Udo Udo (ACCEPT), Lothar Antoni (TRANCE) or Berti Majdan (GRAVESTONE). That's simply a matter of taste! The album has twelve songs, from stomping to speeding, the whole spectrum. That FRACTURE like to exaggerate the clichés is part of their humour, which plays a big role on this album! Who likes any of the above-mentioned bands should get this one.

Not without a reason FRACTURE also had been part of the second sampler of "Heavy oder was?!"-magazine. The sound also is great for an indie-release.
