Burn My Soul

Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (4 Votes)

No, this isn't a new album from the German unholy werewolf popes, Powerwolf. These fellows come from Medellin, Colombia, and even if they may have—accidentally I assume—"borrowed" some elements from the album cover of Blessed & Possessed by Powerwolf, for their own purposes, that's completely alright for me.

The Preacher is the name of this Colombian Heavy Metal band and, damn, they sound good. Burn My Soul is their debut studio outing, showcasing very traditional and pure eighties Heavy Metal from start to finish musically, which they perform very well. The band's music has clear nuances from such names as early Black Sabbath, Helloween, Maiden, early Priest, etc., so yeah, we are talking about a very traditional Heavy Metal act here. Johan Clavijo on vocals sounds great. In fact, his vocals bring such gentlemen as Warrel Dane (R.I.P.) and James Rivera, so you get an idea. The song structures are almost minimalistic and stripped down, taking a pretty straightforward approach. Every song has the needed amount of nostalgia and catchiness incorporated into it, from the early Priest-flavored, riff-filled "Let's Rock" to a bluesy, Sabbath-esque "Temptation", making the album hard to resist for every sucker of things more nostalgic.

The Preacher have the chops to make a breakthrough in the international Metal music markets. I could see them being snapped on the roster of such German record labels as Pure Steel Records or High Roller Records.
