Review

This album will grab your balls and melt them with no mercy! TYRANT play classic heavy metal influenced mainly by BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST and there’s not a single filler in this milestone. Every track kills. Singer Glen May has the most aggressive voice in the whole U.S. metal scene (along with the other Tyrant-Harry C.). Non-stopping piercing screams will blow your brains out and when the album finishes you are ready to murder the first person that will stand before you. These four guys were really metal and it’s a pity that they recorded only two more albums. Just take a look at the photos in the insert and you’ll understand what I mean! Funny thing is that TYRANT were considered as a white metal band but I tell you the music they play comes from the very depths of hell ha ha ha!!!! Best tracks: Warriors of metal, Knight of darkness (one of my best songs ever), the doomy Sacrifice and for the grand finale Time is running low. The CD edition is much rarer but it’s worth getting it for the two bonus demo tracks which are simply divine. If you are into uncompromising good old heavy metal then you need this masterpiece of solid metal more than the air you breathe!
