Ritual Steel : “V” LP & CD 25th October 2019 Pure Steel Records. German Heavy Metal band.
Six years after their last effort , the band is back with a new album. Eighteens years of age, few strong albums and darker one coming. Calling the album V for five is obvious. The black and white cover may think they are back from the dead.
Reading the songs title, it may even sounds like a Stephen King story. After colorful cover albums , it is pretty strange to see such a cover that gives the creep. The three piece combo is bringing us some eighties Heavy Metal, giving reason why they are on this label.
So if you want to be doomed an addicted check this out :
Back in early eighties, influences ranging from Trauma, Iron Maiden, Wretch, Awemaster, Metallica, Manowar, Owen… with punky riffs like the early days of Metal.
The cover artwork would male a perfect digipack but it is only a normal CD, as an Lp it can be really good though. Take all the receipt from the eighties best bands and mix them out you will get Ritual Steel!
A good album that will find it’s place in Metal Heads shelves with pleasure. The album title is pretty unusual, giving the idea of a movie. This album has plenty of images and meanings. Get it now 96/100.
