The only reason why I didn't give these guys 5 stars was because I just don't hand them out like that. However, this is a killer album, and it's refreshing to hear new bands producing music like this.
I was actually in my local heavy metal record store, (yes they still exist) and they had this cd playing on their system. I asked them what it was and they showed me so I bought it. Nothing revolutionary here, but it was good enough for me to listen a few dozen times. It reminds me of Judas Priest with a heavier sound and a little more coming from the production end of the music. This is their only album that I own, and I'm not even sure if they have other stuff. I'm willing to bet if you grew up listening to bands like Iron Maiden or Judas Priest you would definitely like this cd.
'Dream Evil' is a favorite of mine - it reminds me of mid-80's Testament. It has that thrash meets NWBHM sound, and also just as with Testament, you get different sounding songs on albums, which is also what you get with this disc.
'Thunderball' sounds so much like Judas Priest, I can't believe it! It sounds like Priest was meant to do this song - especially on the chorus.
The title track is my favorite here. This is an awesome song - a real headbanger-classic! When they sing the line "When night comes down" it makes me feel like I'm at a Scorpions concert.
Like I said, these guys are really great if you like Judas Priest or other classic metal, but it doesn't get 5 stars from me because I don't think they have an original sound. With a shortage of good metal these days, though, these guys should be able to get some type of strong following.
