Floridas own LEASH LAW, a band that features in its ranks people like Wade Black of CRIMSON GLORY fame and drummer phenomenon Richard Christy. But enough about name dropping. Lets take a look at the record. Lately when I read a magazine I find it really irritating to read about this or that bands latest masterpiece. Everybody just hails and hails mediocre records to no end, just to give them a nudge. And that really sucks. Bands also play the game by milking the listeners dry with sub par records every 1 year. Gosh it sucks big-time. Well either you want to believe it or not LEASH LAWs record is really good. Its not a masterpiece by any means but its really, really good. Easily one of the best 10 albums I heard in the last 5 years. The production took place at Audio Recording Service (one of the premiere American studios where many pop bands do their productions as well as more classical artists like Chris De Burg and Peter Gabriel). The result is simply breathtaking. Clear as crystal, although a gazillion of things are going on (according to the band 21 channels were used to record the drums alone), yet the sound is solid and heavy. Youll feel like someone has dropped a ton of bricks on you! Concerning its style its American Metal, with a lot of really nice short solos in the vein of Malmsteen but with a lot of crunch as well. Imagine PANTERA circa the power metal era, imagine ICED EARTH if they were not as monotonous, Imagine well JUDAS PRIESTs Jugulator if it had a lot of solos. Now take that to the power of ten. There you have it. A perfect mix between American and European, Old and New School, LEASH LAWs Dogface is a hybrid that is gonna appeal to a wide variety of metal heads. Lets go over the tracks one by one now. 01) Fight. A really catchy fast paced opener that grabs you by the neck right from the start. It really sets the pace for the entire record. A really cool riff and a blistering solo. A really catchy chorus. The song is about all the little day to day battles that we fight. 02) Dogface. The dog faces are the soldiers that go first in the battle, probably never to return. Cannon fodder. A really nightmarish mid pacer with a crunchy riff. It almost mirrors the feeling of going to meet your death. 03) Stealing grace. Probably the best track of the record. A more classical metal approach here. Mid pace with a slightly faster chorus and anthemic guitars through and through. Its all about sending people to fight in a war, knowing that they may never return. Stealing their grace and their souls.04) Hail to blood. Well a song inspired by the movie The Gladiator with Russel Crowe, and from the beginning a really epic mood sets in, in a way similar to a soundtrack. Imagine trumpets heralding the gladiators into the arena. A lot of crunch again. And suddenly all hell breaks loose as Wade goes mental and starts shouting like a man possessed 05) Banyan a ballad. The piano is prominent as expected. It sound a bit like the ballads that ACCEPT did and while Wades voice is not exactly mellow, he manages to channel a lot of emotion into his delivery. 06) Better when betrayed. A song about all the backstabbing in the music business. An almost claustrophobic mood in this song. Really ironic lyrics.07) Martial law. Another blistering track. Its all about the counties and territories that re under martial law.10) Hell hole. No its not a SPINAL TAP tribute or cover. Its a really twisted song about a trip to hell. Really heavy and trippy. Pretty interesting if you ask me. 09) Paving the way. The ideal way to close the record . A brooding, moody, song that reminded me of Priests Cathedral Spires in more ways than one. It kind of sounds like something that JAG PANZER could have wrote. Phew. All in all this is one of the most serious and complete metal albums I have heard in the past few years. We ve got a bunch of world class musicians here. Richard Christy of DEATH, ICED EARTH and CONTROL DENIED fame is an animal of a drummer. Just amazing and he really couples well with Stephen Elder of ROB ROCK fame. Emo Mowery from NOCTURNUS along with Rick Renstrom (solo, ROB ROCK) really kick ass on 6 and 7 string guitars. My jaw dropped when I heard Ricks playing who can shred with the best of them although he has a serious handicap that would probably have made other people give up. Wow! And last but not least WADE BLACK. A perfect mix between Halford and Ripper, a 100% nuts, a 100% metal. The band has managed to create a really great album with interesting lyrics, which deal with real life issues apart from a couple of songs. They have good songwriting skills, something that a lot of bands sorely lack in todays scene, ending up to imitate themselves after a couple of albums. LEASH LAW have accumulated a lot of influences but have copied none. Which in itself is a great feat. LEASH LAW have created an album that disregards the standards of traditional power metal and transcends the genres limitations. What could be better than a law that breaks all the rules ? Metal is the LAW, Obey the LAW, LEASH LAW !!! An album from metal heads for metal heads.
Now are you still here? Go out and grab a copy NOW! Its a bloody masterpiece
