Reviewer: Celtic Bob
This German band have been on the scene for a few years and have just released METAL STYLE. This is my first introduction to the group and my initial reaction is quite positive.
Cannon mix a small bit of Accept with some Priest and create a highly enjoyable disc of classic sounding Metal. With songs like “Into The Fire” and “Out In The Streets” you can also hear slight bits of Power Metal creeping into the fold as well but it isn’t overpowering or up front enough to label it as such. This Power Metal styling is a bit more prominent on the song “I Bet You Win” adding to it’s charm. The guitars, drums, bass…everything just screams 1986 in a good way. It doesn’t come across as forced or fake like some 80’s sounding artists. The music comes across as real and made for the love of music and it just so happened to sound 80’s.
Overall an excellent Metal release. Nothing new or groundbreaking here but highly enjoyable.
