I have mixed feelings about this album. The music is overall very good traditional heavy metal, mixed a hint of thrash and a few groovy elements, but the vocalist is not all that great. He has his moments, sometimes doing a good job, but more often than not he sounds like he's had to sing this 1000 times in a row and is just out of breath, for a rather monotonous result. When he doesn't sound like he's just run the marathon, his voice can yield some power and aggressiveness - sometimes he nails it just right and really shines with some first class screaming, but those passages are too few and overall I found the vocals too monotonous. I've listened to this quite a bit already and still can't get used to his style.
The music is where this CD really shines, with very varied guitar work - from melodic heavy metal, to a more mid-80s heavy approach, all the way to speed and thrash and even a hint of death/thrash, all this seasoned with a good number of very well placed and well done guitar solos. Innerfury also go for a little groove in their music, but not overly so - just enough to give it some more catchiness (as if this stuff wasn't catchy enough already. ;)) The drums don't give up their place either, with some powerful demented drumming that reminds me a little of early Killers, and of course a little bit of rolling thunder to keep up with some of the faster passages. Overall a very good marriage of very varied heavy and thrash metal that should please fans of the genre.
