The Israeli Metal scene has really stepped forth in a great way in 2015. Switchblade from Haifa, Israel, plays a back-to-the-roots type of sharp Heavy Metal that is well executed while offering absolutely nothing new. But so what? After several demos and singles 2013 seemed to be the year for Switchblade to lock themselves inside Flam Studios in Haifa to record their first full-length studio outing, Heavy Weapons.
This 9-track effort reeks of Iron Maiden, Accept, Helloween, Metal Church, the NWOBHM and more of Maiden. Switcblade's vintage steel slashes deeply and ruthlessly giving exactly what you expect without any gimmicks: pure traditional, strongly Maiden-esque Heavy Metal. Even the band's vocalist, Lior Stein, shamelessly attempts to sound like Mr. Dickinson and comes pretty darn close. Switchblade has nothing to prove and Heavy Weapons is an entertaining feast for the brothers and sisters of Metal. If that's you are looking for Israeli metallers Switchblade are for you. Straightforward Heavy Metal for your acute need.
