Lizard Secrets: Part One - Land of the Living

Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

My first sample of this wasn't particularly favourable, but halfway through the album I was drawn in and haven't been able to escape since. These Italians' sound reminds me a lot of the happy, positive style that Freedom Call employ on a lot of their material, though this here is not as polished – though the rough edges do have their charms, so it's not as much a criticism as it is an observation.

So, by now most power metal fans have guessed it: This is speedy, modern, clean, happy power metal with catchy melodies that stick in your head to the point of annoyance (in a good way). There's nothing groundbreaking here: Airborn are using a formula that's been used and abused by various power metal bands for nearly 20 years and they're not the best at it but they do a damn good job, for what they may be lacking in musicianship, they more than make up for in delivery. Did I mention this is catchy as hell? I did, but I need to reiterate it. I can't get most of these songs out of my head. If you're looking for a healthy dose of fun and positivity while headbanging and foot-tapping at the speed of light, Lizard Secrets should fit the bill just right.
