Imagine if Glenn Danzig sang for Iron Maiden; that is a bit like what No One's Safe from the U.K.'s Neuronspoiler is like. As unholy as that combination might sound, this EP is actually quite good. The first two tracks are straight up Maiden. Twin guitars duel, the bass gallops and the solos go "toodle-oodle-oodle," in a positive way, of course. Singer JR has a strong, if unremarkable delivery and possesses that from-the-diaphragm sound that makes Danzig so recognizable. The band even does a Maiden-esque, "The Ides of March"-inspired instrumental ("Cataclysm") before they slow the tempo down for the last two tracks. "Updated Subjugation" has a strong, "Twist of Cain" feel to it and even JR's inflections evoke Danzig on this one. The last track, "Words, Words, Words," has a lot of spoken word dialogue and sounds very modern and is, therefore, the weakest track on No One's Safe.

No One's Safe is a short, and somewhat derivative, introduction to Neuronspoiler's brand of Heavy Metal, but it's well played and the band's songwriting is a step above average.
