The Three Tremors

Rated 4/5 (80%) (2 Votes)

What happens when three gifted vocalists (and I do mean, GIFTED) start a collaboration together? Egos start clashing against each other and the idea gets wrecked in a split second. It didn't happen in this case. The original idea of The Three Tremors dates back to some years back when there was some talk about Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate joining their forces for a tour. For a number of reasons, it never happened

Enter Sean "The Hell Destroyer" Peck, Tim "The Ripper" Owens and Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin, backed up by the members of one of Sean's other bands, Cage. The guys not only decided to do a few well-selected shows here and there, but also to record a full-length studio album containing of 12 songs. Even on paper, the Three Tremors concept makes you curious, right?

Well, you should, because the album is packed with great and surprisingly fresh sounding heavy metal anthems that all deserve to be heard. Liking this record is actually the easy part; deciding which songs stand above other songs and which of these three fine gentlemen shines above other vocal performances is the tough part (they all share vocal duties on each track). To me, Sean, Tim, and Harry represent some of the best metal vocalists out there.

As for the songs, after my twelfth spin of the album, I still cannot decide whether any of the 12 songs stand above the others or not. I can only say they all sound equally good to my experienced and old ears. It's just that there's almost too much sheer vocal brilliance squeezed into one record, which sort of takes a role of overpowering all other nice little musical details that one can find in this exceptionally well-balanced and smoothly running album that provides many euphoric and ear-tickling moments.

Now, having said all this, I seriously urge you to check this album out. Hail The Three Tremors for the splendid job!
