Wild Power

Rated 3.43/5 (68.57%) (14 Votes)

Pretty cool band here from Spain, the rather oddly named Steel Horse, an act that have done plenty of gigs yet haven't managed to score a record deal, which is a shame because their debut full-length Wild Power is actually an enjoyable listen.

Despite recording it themselves, Wild Power has a strong production, one which puts it in the Power Metal camp, but really what Steel Horse are doing is fist-in-the-air anthemic Heavy Metal that comes across like Crystal Viper with Peavy Wagner on vocals. Nothing gets in the way of a hard-rocking metal blast here with tracks like "Sons Of Fire", "Run To Survive" and the bitching "Raise Your Fist" doing what they say on the tin, sticking a finger up to modernism and all its traps and pitfalls. There are some good riffs here, some hook-laden choruses, and there's plenty of speed to keep the blood pumping.

A short and listenable album from another hopeful that will get swept under the rug in favor of bands like Enforcer and Steelwing (oh, man, where did I put my hunting rifle?). Without a doubt, fans of Accept, Judas Priest and Metalium will enjoy what Steel Horse have to offer.
