GALLOWS END - NEMESIS DIVINE

FARVAHAR RECORDS / METAL REVELATION

 

Metal To Infinity

Gallows End from Sweden is about to unleash their first full-length album through Ohio based label Farvahar Records – Nightmare Records will take care of the worldwide distribution. While the clock goes countdown to the official release planned for June 25 – 2010, I already received the promo to write down my opinion on the 12 songs adding to the tracklist of Gallows End’s new effort entitled “Nemesis Devine”. 

Vocalist, guitar player Thord Klarström appeared on the Metal horizons as a one-man project but later on, he decided to set up a full member band. He found what he was looking for – a bunch of great skilled musicians to complete a full establish formation. The band recorded a 3-song demo back in 2007 and due to the great response on this product, Gallows End was more motivated than ever before which led to the creation of this new album. 

I’ve heard the entire album a few times until now and have to admit that I really amused myself with their style of music so called Traditional Heavy Metal! Following this form of music since decades, damn right it still feels good hearing screaming guitars and pure Heavy Metal riffs as it should be! Founder / singer and guitarist Thord recorded, mixed and mastered the new album and deserves my dignity completely. Yeah, I like a production like this for sure… not too polished result to bring on a true Classic Heavy Metal feel… again, just love it! 

Ultimate clear but strong vocals, roaring and screaming guitars including excellent melodic guitar solo’s and killer drums / bass lines to the extreme delivering the evidence that Gallows End is a real good band. They’ll definitely find a way straight to the heart of every Classic Heavy Metal defender… and they will conquer their souls of steel undoubtedly! Describing themselves as bringers of Maiden, Accept or Priest influences – totally agree with that but I’d rather like to say that Gallows Pole is more than that. Besides these influences, they’re able to make songs with own ideas and pure passion for Heavy Metal music as well.  

Stand strong to survive the entire tracklist of “Nemesis Divine” – with a running time of nearly one hour, this product is mainly a must-have for those into non-false Heavy Metal pure! Very good release to me – check out Gallows Pole at: http://www.gallowsend.com/  /  www.myspace.com/gallowsend
