So far so impressive for Furyon and this new release ‘Lost Salvation’ carries on where we left off with 2010’s ‘Gravitas’. If you like your Metal melodic and guitars loud then this really is worth checking out. Guitarist Chris Green may well have relocated stateside, but with Pat Heath still ensconced in the UK  all the band has done since 2012 is build, and you will be mightily impressed…

Kicking off with ‘All that I Have’ it would be an understatement to say that the band hits the ground running, and as the album progresses it’s clear to all with open ears that this is something rather special.  Only ten tracks long the band says all it needs to without a scent of filler and that is the real joy about a band like this – Metal can be simple and you can say it all without overkill and without excess.

If you think that metal revolves around the US elite then take a listen to tracks like the title track ‘Lost Salvation’ and the foreboding Scapegoat’ have enough stomp and swagger and touch respectively  to knock you off your feet.
The real meat is of course in tracks like lead single ‘These Four Walls’ – the track that should secure the purchase – it’s Metal just like we like it and a nice juxtapose with ‘Resurrect Me’ which shows that light and shade is as much part of Metal as balls-out rock.

When you add to that tracks like closer, the epic ‘Wiseman’ and the meaty and full-force slow scream of  ‘Dematerialise’  then you already have the basis of a great album, but one that runs the whole spectrum of Metal rather than the monochrome some bands deliver.

All up, even if the name of the band might raise a few eyebrows this is an album you will not be able to put down. ‘Lost Salvation’ is Furyon’s best work to date and there is no indication here that the band is slowing down or resting on their laurels.

One to buy…
