Wreck The Eternal Tyranny

Rated 3.44/5 (68.89%) (9 Votes)

Power Crue have been slugging it out since bloody 1986 and this is their fourth full-length Wreck The Eternal Tyranny. Now I haven't seen much in terms of coverage on this band across the net, with the exception of one or two average scored reviews, which makes this album doubly surprising in the sense that it is well done, and in fact pretty damn bad-ass.

Power Crue's chosen sport is heavy/power metal and they play it with balls and conviction, the likes of which a band their age should have. The guitar tone is meaty and pummels well, really adding character. The bass and drums are fun and aggressive, with lots of fast and heavy cymbal usage, and the bass having a nice bit of room to breathe despite a massive guitar tone taking the foreground. The vocals are also very nice here, with plenty of charisma to boot.

There isn't much that needs to be said about Wreck The Eternal Tyranny, the album is a sleek passage of just under fifty minutes of balls-out heavy metal. Whilst Power Crue doesn't break any new ground, they deliver a lot in the way of fun, and are definitely worth a listen. Particularly tracks such as "Chessboard Soldiers" and "Mental Pestilence" which show the band in their best light.
