Vintage traditional metal with thicker production and a punk-like aggression
New drummer and guitarist added since Heretic's last album, 'A Time of Crisis'. 'A Game You Cannot Win' comes by way of UK label Dissonance and features a vintage, traditional Heretic sound. The title track is a burner, mid-paced with a wallop of guitars that fit into the classic American style – Vicious Rumors, Helstar, Meliah Rage, Axemaster. I think there is just a touch of punky aggression on the strings and the productions adds an extra oomph on the drums to thicken it up. 'Annihilate' is my go to track, a chunky mid-paced bruiser with miles of riffs on the backend.
