Silk9 : “Retribution” MCD 20th October 2017 RFL records. US Heavy Metal band. Winning awards in 2014 as “best album of the Year” the band is back with this new EP and a new line up. Five tracks with different feel and influences. Lyrics all pretty straight to the point the first track “knife in the back” is just right to start and give you the way it’s taking. A strong influence of Pantera ‘s Phil Anslemo ‘cowboys..’ direction mixed with a cool groovy sound from Black Label Society gets you in the mood.
The second track is changing the mood more into the Heavy side with a broken voice with influences from Hydrogyn to David Coverdale ‘s Whitesnake. It has attacks and power reminding the 80’s big ones . The first track is much more on the Heavy/ Hard Rock style in the vein of Shark Island, Dokken, Bonfire… keeping the flame alive!
The fourth track comes back to Pantera kinda riffs and vocals mixed with the rockin attitude from Quite Riot and the last track has a more modern touch that will please lots of Metalheads. in the overall we can say that band have gutts and love for Metal such it bleeds from the diverse influences and good compositions that for sure will stick for a while check ’em out and if you see them live you will love them straight away 90/100.
