Northampton’s Stormbringer are back with another metal-rock banger. Following “Blood & Rust”, comes “Born A Dying Breed”. Having multiple major shows featuring Download and Bloodstock festival, they bring us a classic piece of music.
The album kicks off with “Don’t Trust Me”, and the second it starts it leaves you with just a “woah”. The fast rhythmic riffs and drum bangs make your head bang right away. Needless to say, the album is a fast-paced metal bomb. The riffs are usually with short notes and slides, perfectly suited for the genres. The solos are tremendous. The only thing that I would change in the album, is the vocal to be heavier (deeper) in some parts of the songs, or songs in particular because it gives a not so fulfilling emotion while listening to it. Sometimes it does not seem to fit right in with the heaviness of the guitars and it does not sound very good.
I’d give the album a 4/5 mainly because the vocal feels off. The album in whole is very good but that plays a big part of the full picture. Hoping to see an improvement for this in the future, as the band has a very big potential.
