Today’s review is of German Heavy Metal band Generation Steel’s upcoming debut album, out on January 22nd.
On this album produced by the guitarist of Accept, the band displays some of the most purely classic and Teutonic Heavy Metal possible. With a powerful voice with a strong accent and powerful choruses (like on “Invoke The Machine” or “Temple Of Malady”, steel eagles and lyrics about anything metal enough as to be cool, it seems like all of the topics are covered.
With simple and old-school riffs, some filling melodies, maybe some part that may sound slightly Power Metal (like on “The Chariot”) and really simple and constant drums, these songs are German Metal at its finest, and there are a few songs that may sound really good live or in bars, like “Generation Steel”, “Warbringer” or “Praying Mantis” (both of which bear little to no similitude to the music of Warbringer or Praying Mantis), but they may lack some originality, as they sound just like Accept or UDO and really stick to this formula. If you’re really into this style you’ll love it, but if you prefer other kinds of Heavy Metal it may end up being kind of long this 13-track album. Nonetheless, this is a promising new band.
I recommend this to fans of pure Teutonic Heavy Metal. My rating is of 8,5/10.
