Hell on Earth

Rated 0/5 (0%) (0 Votes)

Sometimes you just want fist-pumping, riff-driven metal with gravelly vocals delivering anthemic choruses with plenty of opportunities to shout along with, and that's what you get on Ancillotti's third album, Hell on Earth. Their music is European in style with neoclassical songwriting vs. the US school of blues-based metal. Songs like "Fighting Man" and "Firewind" don't try to impress you with technical prowess or fool you with unnecessary intricacies, which isn't to say these guys can't play, nothing could be further from the truth. This is just pure metal that will have you grabbing the air guitar to rip off a tasty solo or bash the air drums like a madman. The production is crisp and modern but preserves much of the warmth of those treasured '80s analog classics from Accept, Manowar and Metal Church. I you like your heavy metal served the traditional way, look no further than Hell on Earth.
