Fight for the metal
Hard to question the faith with songs like "Heart Of A Metal Virgin" and "Mechanical Beast". Sweden's best kept secret roar with "In Fire", the group's second attempt to channel traditional metal dynamics through bombastic production standards. Rickard Begtsson (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars) has his creative stamp all over this production, really catapulting beyond the norm and into a heightened sense of awareness. This band nails Accepts's hook-and-groove anthems and do it with a modern capability. The guitars scream cleanly and the kick drums sound phenomenal through fluid consistency. I can't help but throw Lechery in the same cauldron with Wolf and Savage Messiah in terms of ferocious and steady metal deeds. Great vocals, tons of unity and that undying "fight for the metal" persuasion makes this seem timeless.
