Rated 4/5 (80%) (7 Votes)

Raptore is a band from La Plata, Argentina, and this is their first full-length album. Formed in 2012, these kids released a demo in 2014 and gathered some attention with pounding riffing and traditional 70s and 80s influence. Rage n' Fever, as I just said, drinks on the fountain of 80s Heavy Metal and features some dynamic drumming, good guitar leads and monstrous bass lines. Vocalist Nico Cattoni has a high-pitched voice but his highest notes don't get annoying and work well with the atmosphere of the album. Songs like "Night on Fire" and "My Own Grave" have a cool Blitzkrieg vibe all over, while "Evil Hand" and "Runner of Death" bet on a thrashier sound, all with very, very loud bass passages, which is by far the most relied on instrument of the album.

Fans of the Russian Roulette-era Accept, Ambush, Evil Invaders, Ranger, Stallion, etc. will feast with Raptore's rendition of the golden days of Heavy Metal. Fast, aggressive and full of attitude, these Argentinian boys will make you put on your bullet belt, jean jacket and high-top white sneakers and headbang till you puke. Recommended.
