Spain's Redshark play pure '80s-style heavy metal with a nod toward speed metal and admittedly don't try to be anything else. Other than the modern production and crisp sound, this is yet another album that sounds like it could have been released in the mid-80s. Powerful raw vocals, razor-sharp guitar work, thunderous drumming, some cool solos and quite a bit of melodies; they check all the marks throughout most of the album. This is not as ear-friendly as a lot of '80s metal, playing it harder and obviously not the kind that will win over people who are on the fence, so if you're looking for something on the harder edge of the genre, this works. I found that the album loses some steam toward the end and that makes me want it to be over already, though that doesn't stop me from hitting play again. Not perfect, but enough good songs to warrant a listen.
