Picks of the Week

Silver Mountain – Before the Storm LP (Buried By Time and Dust Records)

Silver Mountain were one of the early Swedish heavy metal bands, having formed in 1979. This recording is a re-issue of their great 1980 demo which featured several cuts that later reappeared on their ’83 debut full length. On this recording we are treated to a stripped back, harder hitting performance that does away with the keyboards featured on the album. The result is outstanding melodic heavy metal/hard rock that worships at the alter of Rainbow.

Vultures Vengeance – Where the Time Dwelt In MC (Caligari Records)

Vulture’s Vengeance bring a furious and hard hitting epic heavy metal strike all the way from Italy! This is killer pounding metal that brings to mind classic 80s stuff such as Omen, old Iron Maiden, Running Wild, and maybe even a touch of Cirith Ungol, especially in the vocals. This 2016 recording features a killer production, that is both well produced (to my ears anyway) and raw and powerful at the same time, making it a refreshing listen in today’s world of clicky drums and repulsive modern guitar tones – the snare drum sounds like a crack of thunder over the battlefield. Essential listening for fans of 80s power metal!
