The new kings of the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal
If NWOTHM needs a winner between Steelwing, Enforcer, and Cauldron...well Stallion wins. 'From the Dead' is the follow-up to the surprising debut 'Rise and Ride' (2014). The Germans are over the top, out of control, yet somehow in command of this true, genuine heavy metal sound. Think of Accept's 'Fast as a Shark' crossed with Blitz and the boys circa 1983 with a splash of early Grave Digger...Hell. I can namedrop all day but you would get the point. It's fast and thrashy in the right places, fused with melody in others. Singer Pauly sounds a lot like Hardcore Superstar singer Joakim Berg. A plus in my book. This band is awesome.
Recommended for fans of: early Overkill, Exciter, Grave Digger, Enforcer
