Attitude Force hail from Brazil and play an interesting but not overly original brand of heavy metal, with audible influences such as Iron Maiden (in their most melodic moments), mid-80s Metallica (some riffage anyway), as well as a noticeable doom feeling on a number of songs, all of this wrapped around a bit of a power metal feel. What you get in the end is a good variety of doomy songs, along with a few mid to fast-paced rockers. The vocals are of the clean variety, very well done overall. The singer reminds me of someone, but no matter how much I try, I just can't put my finger on it (don't you just hate that... :)) Overall I think the best way to describe this is "melodic heavy metal". There are some aggressive riffs here and there, some very nice solos, but if to take it all in, it's the melodic that prevails - but don't let this deter you - this is "melodic" in the good sense of the word. Still too metal for radio play, but tame enough to appeal to rock/hard rock fan as well as your average non-extreme metal fan. To some well played music, you can add a simple but nicely done booklet which includes all lyrics, and good cover art that reveals a good amount of details upon close inspection. Attitude Force are not the most original band out there (in all fairness, that can be said of the majority of the bands out there), but they do their thing very well and this MCD is sure worth checking out.
