PERSUADER

THE FRICTION MAZE

2013

 

 

Power Metal perfection...

 

 

Now this is good. Four albums in Persuader seem to have hit the real stuff here. If you love your Power Metal then this is as good as it gets. Perhaps more bludgeoning then you might imagine you can still taste the likes of Helloween and Gamma Ray in the mix but it’s a sound now that Persuader perfected.

 


Our highlights include the wonderful ‘Sent to the Grave’ which increases the heaviness to just the right degree of ear pain; the amazing ‘Heathen’ that comes across like a battle prayer and the closer ‘Falling Faster’ which almost jumps the fence into Thrash territory.

 


If you love your Metal and want to hear a band close to the top of their game then give this a shot.
