URSUS - FUERZA METAL
PURE STEEL RECORDS
Metal To Infinity
I know about Colombia? I know that they had a very crazy goalie so many years
ago, Huigita and I know this country is famous for their illegal drugs but if we
talk metal? I need to think… I have a CD from Legend Maker (with Michael Grant
from Onward / Cypher Seer and Crescent Shield) and I know they’re Colombian.
And Kraken? Aren’t they from this part of South America too? I suppose so.
Anyway Colombia is a country where Spanish is the common language so I can
expect an album with Spanish lyrics…
releases with “Fuerza Metal” their third album and indeed the entire album
contains Spanish lyrics. Only a few notes are necessary to hear this band is a
typical “Spanish” band. Don’t expect technical played songs, this kind of
bands chooses straight-forwarded Metal! Ursus can be considered as a Speed /
Thrash Metal formation and the tempi are constantly pretty high. If you’re
into Speed Metal in vein of Exciter you’ll probably like Ursus.
record didn’t do that much to me. This has been played plenty of times before
but it is “True”, that’s a fact. The vocals of Felix Zamora are raw and
fit this kind of music pretty well. Some parts – or should I say choruses
(“Larda Vida” for example) - are so typical for this kind of Spanish bands.
I’m not the biggest fan, never was and never will. Anyway check http://www.myspace.com/ursusthrash
if you need a dose of old fashioned Southern Thrash.
