Slaves of Time

Rated 4/5 (80%) (2 Votes)

Slaves of Time is the third album from Germany's Stallion, one of the myriad bands playing metal in that early '80s style. Their music is loose and loud, in line with early '80s US metal with brash guitars, love-them-or-hate-them vocals and a raw energy that the modern production can't hide. The singer spends most of his time in the higher register and while he is in tune, his shrieking warble might put you off but if the Jon Olivas and Tim Bakers of the world add spice to your playlist, he should fit right in. Stallion put the pedal to the metal often, occasionally straying close to thrash territory but generally just pummel away with unrelenting metal might. Slaves of Time opens with what may be the best songs on the album in "Waking the Demons" and "No Mercy", each possessing infectious choruses that are impossible to forget. The rest of the songs aren't quite as catchy but still kick ass.

Slaves of Time reminds me of the albums I'd buy back in the day based solely on a cool logo and song titles that looked "metal" and I'm sure if that had been the case, I would have been just as pleased with it then as I am today. Fans of bands like Thrust, Omen and Savage Grace should definitely be into what Stallion is doing.
