Review

What do we have here? One of best-if not the best-releases of N.W.O.B.H.M. ever at my humble opinion. Ground-breaking heavy metal from a band that came from nowhere and left us as heritage this precious gem of perfect metal. VIRTUE play pure power metal of american origin, which reminds us of TOKYO BLADE, IRON MAIDEN and even FIFTH ANGEL (not as inlfuences though). Dynamic vocals, anthemic refrains, blazing guitars, solos that will hit you to the bone and unbeatable passion are the only things that you will find in this 7", that lays down LOOOOTS of other "similar" american releases. Stop searching for rare and sorry-but-i-can't afford-it crap like MILITIA, MYSTRESS etc. and make yourself a gift by obtaining this 7", which will make you cry and worship once again the greatness of this magic music called heavy metal as if it was the first time you heard it. Here lies the IMMORTAL heavy metal and so do we! HAIL!
