Rated 4/5 (80%) (10 Votes)

Hrom are a Canadian band, and another relatively new act who are dedicated to bringing back the classic sounds of '80s melodic metal. You will hear bits here that remind you of bands like Liege Lord, Deadly Blessing, Scanner, New Eden, Cloven Hoof, and even Warning-era Queensryche. I would have to say this band nails that '80s sound better than maybe any other modern band I have heard. Everything from the riff-style, the mix, the vocal recording, the overall sound—all of it just serves to make this sound like an album from 35 years ago. There are some really strong tunes on here, from the haunting melodies of "Stargunner" to the pounding riffs of "Enchanter", and there are not really any dead spots on the album, and the entire thing is really consistent. This band has flown under the radar for a decade or so now, but that won't last, Hrom are just too good.
