Do you like bands which try to reinvent the wheel? If so, you can quit reading now. METAL LAW don't reinvent the wheel, they're just satisfied to run you over with the wheel that's already there. If you want something unique or innovative, you've come to the wrong place. It is not, but who ever said that music needs to be original to sound good and be downright enjoyable? It took 8 long years for the German defenders of steel to come back with a new full-length, the 3rd one in their discography. But good things come to those who wait, and the 10 new songs (plus a re-recording of a tune from their previous album) are traditional heavy metal anthems with solid riffs, sing-along choruses and somewhat gruff vocals reminiscent of Eric Adams, rounded up by production which is a vast improvement over their last effort. Warning: if true metal runs through your veins and you can never get enough of IRON MAIDEN, MANOWAR, JUDAS PRIEST, ACCEPT or old RUNNING WILD, listening to this album is guaranteed to make your head bang, your fists raise up high in the air and is likely to make you wanna party and scream "METALLL!" on the streets in the middle of the night!
• The long awaited third album of this German traditional heavy metal band, the follow-up to the 2008 sold-out and reprinted in 2013 "Lawbreaker" album.
