Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (5 Votes)
The Pact is chock-full of late 70s/very early 80s heavy metal with a very raw sound and songwriting style. They have a bit of a Maiden thing going on at times, especially on closer "Princess of Death", but also there's a rather gloomy, almost-depressing doomy vibe throughout. It's a rollercoaster ride before fast-paced, galloping heavy metal and a more crushing, dark doom fest, which makes for quite a bit of variety over the 36 minutes running length. The vocalist is an odd one. He reminds me of some of the singers from the more obscure NWOBHM bands, those that weren't great vocalists but somehow worked. This guy here can sound tedious at times and you really have to be in the mood for his style. An interesting album.
