Project Terror are a Texas band fronted by former Vicious Rumors/Shadowkeep vocalist Ronnie Stixx. Conquistador is a debut built from the fecund US traditional scene. Obviously bands like Omen, Hexx and Shok Paris spring to mind, the band's operatic vocal runs and fast pace stoic reminders of that 80s nostalgia. For the most part this is a decent first showing even with the poor production. Songs like Blood Red Skies and Take To the Sky are both effective showings of mid-tempo finesse and "run to the hills" energy. Stixx is stellar and he knows it, but thankfully he doesn't over indulge in his talents. Pure Steel keeps up their hot streak.
