Three songs of traditional metal for these US veterans
COMMENTS:
The much-anticipated follow-up to 'Return of the Snow Giant' is still an open ticket. But these three songs at least show the band active again, "preparing for confrontation". Overlorde still has Bunucci and Edwards but have added new skinsman Janeira and a new set of pipes in George Tsalikis (Zandelle). These three songs are forged in the true metal fires, mostly mid-paced powerhouse stuff--high vocals, strong bass presence, traditional melodies. "Destroy Us All" is a moody, slower cut to show off some variance in the skillsets. Enough appetizers, bring on the fresh meat and pints of mead, Mark!
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Jag Panzer, Omen, Cloven Hoof
