Cast from the fires of Nuclear Blast Data, Atomic Hearth Data has been releasing some smoldering Metallic and already that includes a slew of top-notch releases from such outstanding artists the likes of HELLOWEEN, OPETH, MESHUGGAH, AMORPHIS, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, PRIMAL FEAR, SONATA ARCTICA and so on, they positive appear to be they’re right here to remain.
Right here we’ve one other gem of an album, that includes US multi-instrumentalist Zeke Sky along with his debut “Intergalactic Demon King”. Falling within the must-check-out albums, and one that you could be overlook, (don’t) Zeke is one gifted man as he performs guitars, piano, and vocals on this one. The themes round his debut are fantasy and telling tales of bravery, I’ve to confess one have a look at Zeke and I can see him becoming the a part of a superhero as you hearken to his debut he’s one imposing dude, why do I get the photographs of him and He-Man, the Metallic model? Don’t be fooled by the imagery alone, this album shreds from prime to backside.
One of many singles “Mild The Sky” is a frenetic churner of up-tempo metallic delights, prog, metallic mayhem, glorious drumming, and a few fairly stern vibes man, an actual killer tune. The churner up-tempo rhythms in “Mild in The Hole” options some vicious frenetic new metallic grooves, brief and straight to the purpose, this tune merely shreds. The instrumental piece “Hearth Witch” is one other shredders delight, with some glorious upbeat drumming and thick distortion in elements, because it later cools issues calmly in the direction of the top. A cool instrumental completely positioned within the working order of the report. The rising guitar licks in “Stage The Heights” options Zeke throwing down a finger-tapping clinic, however later the feroiuscisly shifts with a folky groove earlier than it wrecks your neck with extra insane poundage and a few rattling aggressive vocalis!!! See the theme right here? The insanity retains turning with extra melting in-your-face metallic and up-tempo grooves and shifts to present a grown man whiplash.
The music is an amalgamation of Heavy Metallic, Melodic, and Progressive with Psychedelic influences. It’s an attention-grabbing mix and truthfully one which works nicely. Not one weak monitor to be heard right here, no fillers as all of them get smashed to hell with a thundering show of heavy. For the beginner Metallic listeners who’ve by no means heard of Zeke Sky, the imagery and themes could also be a bit foolish, however once more don’t let that idiot you, the music right here is excellent and one which deserves your consideration this 12 months.
