Elm Street
Barbed Wire Metal
Style: Heavy Powermetal
Release date: 18 November, 2011
Playing time: 37:09

Hailing from down under this band releases their first album. They have been around since 2003 and have played live almost everywhere in Australia. The album was already released by the band in April and has now been picked up by Massacre Records.

The music of the band is far from original, but it listens away nicely and very recognizable. Traditional heavy metal as we know it from the early 80's, with a German vibe and at times leaning towards speed metal tempi. The vocals of Ben Batres have something unique, and reminds at times of Dave Mustaine with a southern sound. Not the best album ever written, but still a nice album to listen to once in a while.

I advice you to at least check them out.
