Iconic drummers team up with a who's who of metal superstars
COMMENTS:
I could dedicate a novel to this album but time and online real estate is just running out. Two iconic drummers, Carmine and Vinny Appice, team up with an all-star ensemble to create this mammoth metal record. Vocalists like Robin McAuley, Chas West and Paul Shortino combine with legends like Craig Goldy, Joel Hoekstra, Tony Franklin, Erik Norlander and Bumblefoot to name a few. Overall this is classic, hard rock and traditional metal overload, brimming with experience and showmanship. Favorite track is 'Monsters and Heroes' dedicated to Dio's legacy and sung perfectly by Shortino. One of the best cuts of the year in my opinion.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Dio, Black Sabbath, Jorn Lande
