This is the third album from Midnight Priest, a Portuguese band who clearly bow down and worship at the altar of classic '80s metal. If you like old-school US bands like Attacker or Deadly Blessing mixed in with the fist-pumping riffs and speed of—duh—Judas Priest, then this is a feast. The band is not doing anything that hasn't been done before, but they are doing it up fucking right. The volleying, twin-axe riffing is addictive and will give your air guitar hand a cramp. Vocalist Lex Thunder (who seems to have left the band) maybe leans too hard on his high-pitched wails, and in his effort to sound like Halford he is really trying too hard. But overall this is a really fun album that crunches and pounds and wails through its short running time. Fans of Priest or '80s metal in general should not miss it.
