Metalsteel - This Is Your Revelation Award winner

This Is Your Revelation
by V. Srikar at 14 March 2014, 1:19 PM

There have been very few bands that really, really bring a smile on my face while listening to an album and also make me realize how much I miss having a long hair while head banging. When was the last time you thought, that "Yes this album will be a classic 20 years from now!”? I'm not exaggerating, but "This Is Your Revelation" by Slovenian Metallers METALSTEEL does exactly that and more. With a band name like METALSTEEL and an experience of 4 studio albums behind them, expect nothing but unadulterated anthemic old school Heavy Metal with shades of Thrash and Progressive elements in them. Very often one is fooled by cheesy band and album names, but not here. With accelerating ear pounding riffs and equally rhythmic drums and screaming vocals, one can clearly see the influences of old school heroes like IRON MAIDEN, DORO MANOWAR, ICED EARTH, AC/DC, U.D.O and likewise. The beauty of "This Is Your Revelation" is that while it makes its intentions clear, it brings in enough variety like the occasional acoustic guitars to avoid sounding monotonous and unidirectional like in the soothing “Call Of The War". “Man Of The 1000 Faces” has to be my favourite from this gem of an album, for its sheer catchiness and it's free flowing music.

The guitar riffs are so beautiful that your head will bang automatically even before you realize. The drums and bass follow the guitars and vocals as is with traditional old school Heavy Metal. Even the guitar solos are all perfectly placed and leave no stone unturned. The commanding vocals of Beni Kic speak about inspirational lyrics and the society in general and are a perfect album for anyone looking for a catalyst to get through their day. The production is top notch and leaves no stone unturned.

This is an album that will not only end up in my year end top list, but a certified classic in my opinion. Take my word, just go listen to it without any second thoughts.
