he band decided to replace Fox with the more darker and graspier vocals of John Prakesh and to be honest, they did a fine job in their choice. This dude fits the more metal style of the band with conviction.
For those that are yet to hear the band I guess the best way describe them is they play dirty bar band rock ‘n’ roll music that draws its inspiration from MOTORHEAD, KROKUS and AC/DC, but then layered on top of that is a large amount of old-school styled death metal vocals and the occasional banshee-like wail…
Now we have the band’s third release in “Trinity” and some welcoming new things pop in place here and one is undoubtedly the voice of James Labrie (Dream Theater) vocalist and guest Helloween singer Andi Deris on “Black Widow”. Labrie doesn’t just guest on one track, he lends backing vocals on the entire CD
I took an interesting approach to this record simply because I have no previous mateial from the band to compare to and while some of my favorite folky metal bands like Wuthering Heights for instance actually cemented a special place in my heart when it came to my limitless taste in the genre, proving that if the music is well performed it has a chance to impress anybody.
The press release hinted at the band’ sound as cross mixed between Black Label Society and Nickelback, the truth is that they have kin of their own sound and integrate modern American hard rock with some more mainstream hooks and antics on the Metal side of things. Is a good listen a few times but i didn’t feel as I was listening to anything powerful in terms of the music composition itself.
