Power of Metal.dk Review

Metal Bridge
Style: Speed/Heavy Metal
Release date: 31 October, 2014
Playing time: 65:42

Warrant, no not the American glam metal band known from albums like 'Cherry Pie', but the reunited 80's German metal band you might know from their album 'The Enforcer' (1985). The only original member in the band is Jörg Juraschek (vocals and bass) and with Dirk Preylowski (guitars) and Thomas Rosemann (drums) the line-up for this album is completed. In fact the band goes on where they left us in the eighties, with uptempo (speed) metal with a lot of melody and some thrash elements. Only this time with a modern production and a better sound of course. The song writing style is still about the same and the singing of Jörg is sometimes a bit in Peavy Wagner style, but with more variety.

If you like music in the vain of Paradox, Rage, Exciter with some thrash riffage Bay Area style this is an album you have to check out. If you listen to the new versions of two of their classic songs "Ordeal of Death" and "The Enforcer" you can hear that there hasn't been much change in their style, only the production methods have developed a lot. Much more I don't have to write about this release, it is what it is, nice classic (speed) metal in a modern wrapping.
