CAGE “Ancient Evil”
Sweden Music Group
Sean Peck and his powerful throat are back, and no doubt he is one of the most solid and corrosive heavy metal singers nowadays.
Formed in 1992 in San Diego CA, we are talking a band that has grown over the years, delivering excellent albums since the beginning. The distinctive seal is aggressive guitars from Dave García and of course, an awesome throat, a hybrid of Halford, Ripper Owens and Kim Bendix. All tracks are based in the purest essence of heavy metal, with high doses of melody, epic guitar solos and emotional choruses. Definitively they forged an own style over the years, and now they sound unique, in spite of the strong revival of the genre. Also, everything is tied by touches of NWOBHM, with steroids and testosterone, if you know what I mean. All in all, this is an excellent album, with a distinctive perspective of heavy metal genre in America. It’s highly recommended for those followers of solid heavy metal. – Victor Varas
