I've been following Denmark's Savage Machine from their debut EP Through the Iron Forest (2014) to the "Event Horizon" single (2016) and now to their first full-length album, 2018's Abandon Earth. I said in my review of the single that I'd be one happy metal fan if the band had an album's worth of songs like "Event Horizon" and dammit if they come through. Abandon Earth is everything I was hoping it would be. A sci-fi story of the human race leaving Earth, Abandon Earth is a heavy, melodic feast for the ears. Singer Troels Rasmussen uses his powerful, Warrel Dane vocals to give this story life and suck listeners in. The rest of the band does their part, creating a futuristic atmosphere with their precise yet warm performances. The songs from the single, "Event Horizon" and "Savoir", were well chosen as they are album highlights but you will find it hard not to break out the air guitar for "The Fourth Dimension", keep up with Martin Helbo on your air drums during "Age of Machines" or sing along with Rasmussen on the emotional and atmospheric "Time Traveller." Abandon Earth is a joyous ride from the darkness of Sanctuary's Refuge Denied to the adrenaline rush of Warrior's Fighting for the Earth. An impressive debut for Savage Machine.
