Born for Metal

Rated 3.43/5 (68.57%) (7 Votes)

It's quite common to see one-man bands in black metal, but much less so in heavy/power metal. Immortalizer is one of these rare birds, hailing from the province of Ontario, Canada (city unknown as of this writing). There's a lot of the usual suspects from the late '70s and '80s listed as influences, and Born for Metal certainly sounds like it. Think '80s heavy metal with a sound just unpolished enough to be charming, but clean enough so as not to turn off some more demanding listeners. Throw in a bit of more modern power metal to keep up with the times. Season that with a bit of old catchy, sleazy hard rock that "just rocks" and makes the crowd go nuts. Harden things up with a little thrashy edge that reminds me of Annihilator at times. It's a fun album. It's energetic, catchy, sometimes a little melancholic on the slower numbers. It's unpretentious, just rocking the fuck out, and it's pretty much guaranteed a bunch of these songs will stick in your head after the first listen. Oh yeah.
