Anguish Force comes from Italy and “2: City of Ice” are their second album, Anguish Force are a five piece without a keyboard player quite a rarity with Italian bands.

Anguish Force delivers straightforward Heavy / Power Metal, it almost sounds like Running Wild meets Helloween meets Warrant a great mixture of old German Teutonic Metal.

Out of the ten tracks on “2: City of Ice” the melodic “God Against God”, the speedy “Anguish Force” and the riff attack on “Claustrophobia” stands out as the best tracks.

The rest of the album doesn’t reach the same standard, Anguish Force still have a lot of work in front of them before they can compete with the above-mentioned bands.

And hopefully they will use a little more time on the production next time.
