Bloodbound - Nosferatu - 2006 - AOR Heaven
"Nosferatu" is really just a fine representation of heavy metal in it's purest form. From the creepy storyline of "Behind The Moon" to the down right maniacal penning of the title track, this band just rejuvenates the power metal movement with that eerie songwriting style made famous by cuts like Priest's "The Ripper" and of course Maiden's "Hallowed Be Thy Name". The bass line frenzy is reminiscent of Steve Harris, highlighting "Metal Monster" with it's galloping pace. The classic battle front, war swept saga is of course evident in "On The Battlefield", the battle hymn every power metal band needs. As always Urban Breed is magnificent, displaying that ultra clean, ultra precise vocal delivery that made his previous band so damn likable.
Bottom Line - A fantastic new band that really can stir a whole new movement within the traditional metal spectrum. A must have for Iron Maiden fans!
