Doom on You

Rated 4/5 (80%) (13 Votes)

Well-executed, raw and organic sounding Speed and Heavy Metal are always welcome, right? Michigan's Harbinger, with its strongly Maiden-influenced melodies, are undoubtedly a band that get lots of attention for the speedy Heavy Metal assaults on their debut release, Doom on You, released by Planet Metal in 2009. Not only do they understand what the NWOBHM phenomenon was all about but they have also managed to infuse Doom on You with some of the best elements from that movement.

It's like they took a time machine back to the early 80s and shamelessly borrowed influences from some of the hottest NWOBHM names; Satan, Atomkraft, Avenger, Savage, Jaguar and, of course, the one and only Iron Maiden. In some strange way, Harbinger has found that special gear in their musical machine that lets them move smoothly towards the sound that is so pleasing to our always-nostalgic ears.

Doom on You screams retro but Harbinger doesn't pretend to be anything else but a band that's knee-deep in those nostalgic times of the NWOBHM bands.
