Thunder, Storm and Passion

Rated 2.8/5 (56%) (5 Votes)

With a name and album cover like this, one would expect an album that’s a little more... metallic. Mad Max are on the melodic edge of Heavy Metal, with quite the hard rock edge to its material. This band was formed in 1981 and this album consists of "re-recorded classics." Some of this reminds me of mid-80s Def Leppard along with some of the mellowest Judas Priest of the same era. Think of the more melodic material from metal bands of that period, and that’s roughly what Mad Max have to offer here, albeit with a modern production. The singer reminds me a little bit of the guy from Mob Rules at times. If you’re looking for something melodic with power chords and a decent amount of catchiness, this is a good album. Don’t expect much metal ass-kicking, however, as this packs a lot more passion than thunder and storm.

There’s a second CD with the band playing live at Band Your Head Festival 2014.
