Doomsday for the Heretic


Now, this is my kind of Metal! Metal Inquisitor is a German old-school styled Heavy Metal band that do nothing more than write enjoyable and memorable songs. A suitable explanation of the band would be that they borrow the swift, impressive riffs of Falconer with a small pinch of Metalucifer. They're one of those Heavy Metal bands that present the finger to bands that want to follow in the sounds of other bands. Metal Inquisitor do things their way and I have to say that it's a good time.

What's remarkable about Metal Inquisitor is that they play crunchy yet fast Heavy Metal that flows exceptionally smoothly as you progress through the album. The album starts off with a short minute-long track followed by "Doomsday For The Heretic" where the riffs already explode at you and you get your face mashed by powerful riffs, satisfying drumming and wicked basslines. The vocals suit the overall sound delightfully and you're never let down at any time, it's just a fun full-scale assault of great traditional metal. You just accept the whole package and enjoy it. The rest of the album flows satisfactorily between tracks, especially with some great hitters like "Thane of Cowder" and "Star Chaser". There's also a treat for the speed-lovers with "Legion of Grey", but the true epic gem of this album is with the 8:10 minute monolith "Infamia". Afterwards, we're just once again thrilled with kick-ass typical Heavy Metal tracks like "Logan's Run" and my favorite track on the album, "M4 A1". The album closes nicely with the track "Invader" but we're not done yet! We're delighted with a nice bonus track called "Bad Boys Hard Rock Police" which is a pretty cool, but it's the decent track on the album.

Although this album is an absolutely fantastic listen, it's just your ordinary and typical Heavy Metal album with a bunch of cool songs that's just a really killer way to spend 52 minutes. It may be typical, but it's kick-ass Heavy Metal at its finest!
