There is a lot in L.A. quartet Fireball Ministry’s sound that is really nice. Just too bad that all those nice things have been so obviously cloned from seminal albums from the mighty Sabbath, AC/DC, Maiden and in particular Ozzy solo. Especially the three tracks “Sundown”, “In the End” and “Spill the Demons” are more or less nicked from the Prince of Darkness.  

As I said, there are really good things all over the place on this album, but it never moves beyond background music for an evening out at the pub with the lads.  

Recommended: “Hellspeak” (not highly original, but has a lot of atmosphere)
