My favourite new traditional heavy metal band in years. Tongue-in-cheek sensibilities meet with utter conviction in kicking much ass, with fabulous riffs aplenty, songs that are always absolutely perfectly balanced. Given this is their first record, look out, this band is going places!
Favorite track: Roll Racing.
1st album by this spanish band that plays a fresh and powerful Heavy Metal merging classic influences in the vein of JUDAS PRIEST, W.A.S.P., WARLOCK, IRON MAIDEN... with more current sounds in the tradition SKULL FIST, STRIKER, CAULDRON, STALLION...
supported by 5 fans who also own “Welcome to the Row”
So I can't leave a long enough review to say everything I want. But I will say this, I love this EP. It's a great little follow up to times, and has just enough of a dynamic shift in sound to prove that Smoulder isn't a one trick pony with their first album's formula. This one really plays up the 70s prog aspects (DUST and Manilla Road influences definitely shine through even harder here). It's still Smoulder, don't get me wrong. Just a different side in some ways, all of which are good. playfulpooka
