As much as I like extreme metal there’s nothing better to get the blood pumping and the head nodding than good old-fashioned heavy metal. Riffs that tug on the heart-strings and sumptuous twin guitar melodies which remind me somewhat of Trouble’s eponymous album – high praise indeed!
Favorite track: Last Night on Earth.
Quietly dripping into the scene in 2010, this is Corsair’s first EP. This is the beginning and foundation of what will be in years to come a classic Progressive Rock / Heavy Metal band. Heavily rooted in the sounds of classic 70’s Rock and Metal, this EP has splashes of just about every 70’s band you can imagine from Kiss, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, to Black Sabbath. They didn’t really lather up on the Thin Lizzy sound until later, but this is certainly quality and unique… something we cherish at the SKR label.
