SKULLVIEW - METALKILL THE WORLD
PURE STEEL RECORDS
Metal, that’s what this is all about when we talk about Skullview. This
American band, based in Portage / USA, just released their fourth album and is a
recommended one if you’re into Eighties Metal. As a matter of fact the
underground of the US Metal scène never really vanished, they’ve only
suffered hard times. Nevertheless True Metal is still available right there and
Skullview is one of the examples.
missed their previous album but when I compare this one with the debut, called
“Legends Of Valor”, I can’t say the band changed that much. It is even
remarkable that the band members are still the same, even after at least 12
years Skullview never changed their team. I suppose it’s pretty hard to
discover bands that never changed their line-up. It means their ideas are
similar and these five lads have hardly any argues about the musical direction
of the band.
fans of traditional Metal (especially Iron Maiden) – even a bit dated -
will be satisfied. Skullview delivers the pure underground stuff and
isn’t afraid using any of the Metal clichés, not musical wise and not lyrical
wise. In what they’re doing they are strong enough to be convincible and
therefore you should give these guys a chance. Compare them with what a lot of
German true Metal bands are delivering but then far better.
