Well this is a surprise. A name like Hellfueled made me expect yet another tiresome Black/Death screamfest, but imagine my surprise when Hellfueled's aggressive old-fashioned Heavy Metal came blasting out and rocked my face off. This is a powerful stripe of pure metal that draws heavily on classic Sabbath (including the Ozzy-like wails of vocalist Andy Alkman), as well as an unmistakable flavoring from the likes of Alice in Chains or Soundgarden. Normally I would say that would be a bad thing, but Hellfueled avoid the angst and manage to channel that The-Riff-is-King vibe of the best 90's rock. The whole sound is a propulsive, heavy, and hooky sound that trades delicacy for a bass-heavy groove and riffs that hit like nail-spiked baseball bats. Cheers to Hellfueled for forging an album of retro-powered awesome that rocks like a motherfucker.
