EMISSARY – SUMMER TOUR EP ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of American Power Metal band Emissary’s new EP.

Serving as an appetizer before their upcoming album later this year, the release features 3 tracks from their latest Summer Tour and their respective demo versions from 1994-95.

Combining classic Power Metal in the likes of Gamma Ray with the characteristic approach of USPM and a much more Heavy Metal direction than most bands of the genre, there are bits that may also remind the listener of Iron Maiden, although there is also an aggressive Speed Metal undertone as in any good Power Metal. Their melodic interludes between catchy choruses will surely also appeal to fans of Seventh Son-era Maiden, while the Power Metal roots are still there apparent. Collectors may be interested in these raw versions of “The Silent Treatment”, “Crash & Burn” and “Ruler Of Defiance”.

I recommend this album to fans of Power Metal, Speed Metal and Heavy Metal. My rating is of 8,5/10.
