It seems to keep happening: death or black metal guys forming trad metal bands. This latest one's got two Satan's Wrath guys, plus ties to Electric Wizard and even Death! And like The Dagger or Audrey Horne, they display a surprising knack for it, with riffs and song structures that remind you overwhelmingly of the best NWOBHM-era stuff without being a total retread. Everything's recorded nicely, but with enough raw edge; guitars are vintage sounding, but not self-consciously so. Random thought: Jimmy Mavromatis' vocals remind me of Alexx Stahl (Viron/ Roxxcalibur). If you like it old school, keep an eye on these guys!
