Vhaldemar – Against all Kings

Against all Kings
by Riccardo Gaffuri at 10 December 2017, 1:50 PM

After the tasty starter EP “Old King’s Visions”, spanish VHALDEMAR come back with their sixth full release “Against all Kings”, a full teutonic meal cooked by someone with beer, pretzels and krautwurst in their veins, out for Fighter Records. Our fellow spanish unleash their fury since the beginning: opener “Metalizer” is a squared mid-tempo track that will shatter your ears; this is something that wouldn’t look bad on a GRAVE DIGGER record, thanks to Carlos Escudero harsh vocals. With next track “(1366) Old’s Kings Visions (Part V)” this onslaught goes on, a perfect tune for mosh pit lovers. Titletrack “Against all kings”, featuring Alberto Rionda from AVALANCHE and his lead solo, is the pearl of this LP, with a catchy and well rendered chorus: this is ­VHALDEMAR pitfall trap for all the listeners, that will be stuck in their musical whirlwind.

“Eye For An Eye” and “The Last to Die” are once again proof of the band’s teutonic blood, while with I Will Stand Forever, a more hard rock tune, and layered yet solid “Howling at the Moon” show their maturity, knowing what they’re worth of, in terms of musical power and technical level. This release delivers all the forceful soul of VHALDEMAR’s heavy metal, ready to shatter bones & hearts of european metalheads: we see them standing on their musical influences yet their music shows an original mind behind songwriting.
