Absolva : ‘Defiance’ Double CD 28th July 2017 Rocksector Records. UK Heavy /Thrash/ Power Metal band. Appleton’s brothers have once again hit the Metal world to set the world on fire. A powerful and melodic album mixed up with live songs to kick your ears. 13 songs and 8 live ones giving the fans a double album, keeping their symbol on the cover identifying the band easily, they just made a perfect album you will play and play again. I’ve been listening to it many times and some songs just stick into my mind. That album is a true Metal album cooked with love and ingredients every metalheads will bang their head to. Fueled by hit singles such as ‘Eclipse’ , ‘Life on the edge’, ‘Connections’, ‘Defiance’…I think the whole album is just made to hit the top of the charts. Heavy riffs, pounding drums, melodies in the voice, beautiful solos, those guys know how to write the tunes that will kick your butt and get you kneel to the mighty combo the brothers are bound to.
Many of the songs got a Megadeth Dave Mustaine style, some have riffs from Toranaga, Nevermore, solo melodies reminding Iron Maiden, Savage Messiah and Iced Earth on the ballad song ‘connections’. You might also find influences from Whitesnake , Def Leppard ,Skid Row, Saxon… well this is a Metal band!!! That probably makes one of the best album to come in July. Sorry folks you’re gonna have to wait a little bit to get your hands on that masterpiece 100/100.
