Italy's Fake Healer is a relatively new band playing an old style of no-frills Heavy Metal. A couple of guitars, bass, drums and vocals, just how Iron Maiden and Judas Priest laid out the original formula, is how Fake Healer approach their craft. The bass player, Massimiliano Dionigi, deserves a shout-out for his Steve Harris-inspired work that gives the songs on the band's debut Two Worlds a lot of its character. Much of the rest comes from singer Alessio Taiti who has a voice devoid of Halford/Dickinson depth but goes at it with energy regardless. His English seems a bit shaky and that had me thinking of 80s bands like Loudness and Crossfire. The songs are pretty generic and Fake Healer haven't come up with anything to separate themselves from the crowd. There's nothing wrong with Two Worlds, just nothing you haven't heard before and that's the task before Fake Healer; find a distinct style or a higher gear when it comes to songwriting or remain a small fish in a very big sea.
