Satan's Blade - Curse of the Blade Award winner

Satan's Blade
Curse of the Blade
by Brynn Kali StarDew at 07 February 2023, 1:25 PM

I liked the woke intro monologue on the intro track Curse of The Blade, The singer has a great voice. You don’t really hear people that sound like this too much in this Metal/ Punk Genre. The Next song  Burning Skies, was also a solid metal track, a lot of really good energy here! Solid musicianship all around, as well as lyrics. Same goes for Across the Line, I really like the punching guitar riffs Alanzo & Andrew are laying out herePro-Tip though consider trying to make more videos and put some lyric videos out there!

The fourth song on the album Cobra Strike really didn’t “strike” me as anything in particular except a lot of pounding on the drums to pay attention to but then I listened to the intro to Battalion and things improved for me. I guess the single did have some interesting album art on cobra strike. I am  in no way condoning drug use, or the abuse of animals….all I am saying is injecting Cobra venom into your veins is pretty punk! Both Remind me a lot of early Slayer and Iron Maiden albums in terms of sound.

Moving on to the next track number six, Satan's number! Make Her Bleed is pretty cool actually, I am normally not that into tracks like this, but it just has a good sound overall I don’t really see anything bad about it. I guess I can’t really understand what he is saying the whole time, something about love, but it still seemed well written still as far as I could tell. It has a good chorus.  The Final Track For those Who Dare to Dream has a slower ambient intro which sounds like marching and war beats , but progresses into a nice chugging and Iron Maiden -Esque lyrics commonplace for this Genre. I was hoping for more intro monologues but it's ok. I really liked the buildup they had till the climax which led into a beautiful psychedelic abstract sort of thing. This is my favorite drum track on the album as well, thanks Mario! All in all a good twelve minute track and a really good album I’m sure most fans of Heavy Metal will definitely appreciate!
