HJALLARHORN - IRON CLAD SOLDIERS
PURE STEEL RECORDS
Metal To Infinity
iron on Pure Steel! This band is totally unknown to me but as usual with Pure
Steel Records I can expect some good traditional Heavy Metal. The tempo from the
first track is good, the production full of power and this counts for the entire
album! This band describes theirselves as
NWOCHM, which stands for the New Wave Of Classic Heavy Metal. Is there actually
a new wave of Metal bands nowadays? Oh yes, worldwide traditional Heavy Metal is
back on the front and the reunion of plenty of classic Metal bands proves true
Metal heads are still around! Also the fact traditional Metal festivals are
often sold out shows and the fans
are still out there!
I suppose you know what to expect with a band like this oneÖ Good riffs, a lot
of screaming and fast fingered guitars, up tempo bass and drums. It is clear
Hjallahorn is influenced by the Eighties Metal movement, the music and the
lyrics are breathing 100% pure Metal! Foreseen with a good guitar player the
band shows that the roots of Heavy Metal are still playing an important role.
Hjallarhorn delivers us all kind of
ingredients our worldwide community is fond of.
youíre a fan of the NWOBHM movement or if youíre into bands like Metal
Church, Anvil, Annihilator etc. Hjallarhorn
wonít disappoint you. Singer/guitar player Dani Nilsen isnít exactly an
exceptional vocalist and his vocal lines might be the weakest point of the band.
Because of the band is playing very good Heavy Metal I am convinced a good
singer is necessary to be competitive in the future. The band delivers good
songs but the vocalist isnít able to lift the band to a higher level.
Therefore I hope that this band will at first search for a first class singer,
which could make them pretty attractive.
did more than its best to deliver a good CD, to me it is more than an enjoyable
one. Nevertheless Hjallarhorn is too mediocre if you compare them to plenty of
other new releases.
