Review

What a great band-name! I expected to hear some doom-power tunes inside but what i found was sleazy hard rock. MOURNBLADE sound like a mix of old MOTORHEAD and THE ALMIGHTY. The music quality is not as high as in the bands mentioned before –unfortunately. It’s not a bad record, actually it contains good tunes like If you can’t be good or Paradise but you can’t call it a masterpiece either. I believe the biggest problem is the vocalist who sounds flat and has no emotion while he sings. Anyway, this not a must-have even for NWOBHM collectors. I recommend you listen to it first and then you decide if you wanna buy it or not.

Tracks
