|Track Listing 1. Wrapped in Plastic|
2. I'm the Cybored
Starting out as a classic power metal band, the Italian-based Windseeker went through line-up change after line-up change until they finally became what they are today, a power-thrash band with the sound of a young Iced Earth. Other than the low-quality mix, it's a surprisingly good demo. In fact, I've named it my Demo of the Year for 2003.
The drums and rhythm are quick-paced with a familier Maiden-esqe gallop. Mauro Gelsomini's vocals are mid-range and though sometimes strained, sound good. The lead guitar riffs are usually slower than the backing rhythms which gives you a chance mentally to relax and get into the songs on a listenable level. Slower moments remind be of Maiden's "Remember Tomorrow".
All these guys need is a good producer.
