Deliverance describe themselves as 'Melodic Thrash' or something, but really, this is just good old-fashioned Heavy Metal with a nice, crunchy edge to it. I like the guitarwork on this CD very much, as the playing is really excellent, and the riffs are very catchy. The tone on the recording is good too, clear but punchy, with a good lower end. Three tracks is just a taster of what this band can do, and if they can write an album full of riffs this good they'll be doing very well.

But – you knew there was a but, right? – but they have to get a better singer. Guitarist Oskar Frantzen has a decent voice, and perhaps he was rushed in the recording, but the vocals sound weak, and the melody lines are not too good either. So the vocals on this disc are something you learn to tolerate, but they definitely hurt the overall sound. If Deliverance can get a real singer with some chops to write them some really good vocal lines to go with the riffs, then their next demo, or album will be something to look forward to eagerly. I hope this band keeps doing what they are doing, and I hope they can make it even better next time out. A promising band.
