Rated 0/5 (0%) (0 Votes)

Steel Glory plays classic heavy metal and hail from Singapore, of all places. This MCD won't amaze you by its originality, but it's still a good listen if only to play "find the influences" and headbang a little bit. :) Some notable influences here are some hints of Black Sabbath, as well as Maiden (especially their late 70s material) and a bit of early 80s hard rock mixed in, just to name these. Definitely not a bad combination. I found the only thing that gets a bit annoying is the singer who seemingly cannot handle all the notes he's trying to reach, and the result is an occasional "shaky" voice that makes my teeth cringe. Now that doesn't mean he's a horrible singer - he does a good job on a few songs, but the overall performance is unequal - need some perfecting here and there. The playing is pretty good, with some rough edges at times but I find it's sometimes refreshing to not have an overpolished product, and the overall MCD sounds good nonetheless.

This is the kind of MCD you listen to just to have a good time, not to be awed by technical prowess or originality. Another young band that carries the flag of classic heavy metal - something I can only approve of! :) Is this an absolute must-have? No, but you're still in for a good time. Check 'em out if classic metal is your stuff. The MCD can be purchased directly from the band, e-mail for ordering information.
