After giving Peace a first listen our HiFi speakers reminisced bands such as Sir Lord Baltimore and Led Zeppelin and the combination of a different atmosphere in the band brought forth by the new drummer Oskar. The hypnotic catchy drum patterns, hypnotizing minor guitar scales and vocals from the graveyard were everything we expected and more.
The guitars are big and crunchy, the low end laid down by Taylor and Poullian delivers a nice kick without sounding to muddy or booming and of course Justin Hawkins’ signature falsetto is soars above it all.
‘True Rockers’ is an old skool treat from the album artwork to the true rock n roll spirit which exudes emotionally from the speakers.
any fan of old school, balls to the wall hard rock? Again, this is a must-have. I’m simply blown away by the magnitude of this album.
My feelings on this album are a bit confused. I can’t help but feel that I should love it, each and every track has the ingredients that make great metal songs
The new album, simply entitled ‘XIII’, is the next example of this move. ‘XIII’ comprises of 12 songs, all of them anchored in the fields of melodic rock.
My go-to guy within Drama Queen for this review was drummer Rob Pace and he told me they weren’t ashamed to admit being honed on the 80’s era of hard rock. His enthusiasm for their s/t debut was enough to convince me to dig deeper into their album and I came away loving it.
When Tracii and Phil decided to bury the hatchet (and not in each other) and released last year’s amazing The Missing Peace, it was like all things were right in the world again.
It’s not so much of a statement as a prayer request; it’s us asking God to damn evil. It’s that simple. It has created controversy.
Four years ago Ziller had to face a major line-up change. Singer and founding member Claus Lessmann left the quintet from Ingolstadt, Germany and was replaced by former Accept singer David Reece.
