Through the ones and zeros of the Internet has arrived a still-hot-from-the-oven promo of this Swedish duo. Described as “traditional heavy metal with plenty of melody, prominent bass lines, and the occasional organ part. The band’s music has been likened to acts such as HÄLLAS, JUDAS PRIEST, as well as URIAH HEEP“, this description has caught my eye – not because I would describe myself as a fan of traditional heavy metal, I certainly don’t listen to Uriah Heep, and even Judas Priest kinda eludes me as a whole, but on the contrary – I don’t usually listen to this genre (1970s, early 1980s), definitely not enough, so, why not, right?
I won’t say I’ve been completely oblivious to the metal scene in Poland, years ago the local Polish music shops have supplied us with plenty of good music not only from around the world, but also from local metal scene. Obviously, as me and my friends were into extreme metal, I was not aware of classic hard’n’heavy or heavy metal proper Polish style, but with my recent review of excellent Shadow Warrior’s EP that situation has changed – for better.
Nicholas from Heathen Tribes Records has been so kind to send us some stuff for a review and among those releases I’ve found this interesting material from Polish group Shadow Warrior. And boy, did it find a big love in my heart.
What to play, when it’s when it‘s raining all day long and you just have dragged yourself from work (like I do)? Well, something full of energy, of course, so Canadian old school metal worshippers Hexripper with their first demo are more than welcome.
