Italy's (underground) Metal scene is full of surprises; pleasant ones in this case. These four horsemen from Rome, going by the Hi-gh moniker, have only existed since 2012 but have already recorded two full-length studio albums.

Till Death and After is the title of Hi-gh's second effort and it follows the roots of Speed/Heavy Metal in the vein of early Maiden, Venom, Iron Angel and Whiplash, coming out as authentic, honest, fresh and energetic as hell. One can tell right off the bat that these young Italian lads are enthusiastic and totally into what they do and nothing will turn them away from their chosen path, something that can be heard on the 12 cuts on this opus.

These Italians are on fire and churn out intoxicating Speed and Heavy Metal. This clearly speaks to the right attitude, total devotion and, most importantly, great musicianship. They keep the tempos of their songs at a high level almost constantly, which undoubtedly makes them an entertaining live band as well.

There's not a single dull moment to be found on this record and something urges you to play it over and over and over again. Guess who's getting "hi-gh" from this addictive record. ;o)
