Lineup: David Ellefson - Bass Ken Mary - Drums Chris Sanders - Guitars Adam Emmons - Keyboards William King - Vocals
A real super-group from the US-Metal-scene: Knight Fury from Arizona. The guys who are members of this band are well established in the US-scene. Chris Sanders (ex-Lizzy Borden) is on guitars, Dave Ellefson plays the bass and Ken Mary thunders the drum kit.. Both Dave and Ken may be known to metal-fans as (former) musicians in bands like Megadeth (Dave), Alice Cooper, Impellitteri, Chastain and Fifth Ange and Accept (Ken) Of course those are just a few names of the bands that the guys have played with but I guess they are enough.
You may already have been extremely excited reading about this killer line up but I must make sure that the real surprise of this band is William King’s very original voice, which makes this album an absolute must. Here we got simply one of the top 5 voice in the Metal universe today. You must hear him to believe it. His voice type would bring to your mind the golden age of US steel, additionally his vocal melodies is the heavenly touch on the band's music.
Their debut-album “Time to Rock” was produced by the band itself and it offers melodic Heavy Metal in the vein of Fifth Angel and Leatherwolf. You can also add some Crimson Glory and Riot -mainly in their more straight melodic moments- as band influences. Well I suppose that you have managed to shape a picture about Knight Fury on your mind. The picture is good but you will be amazed when you will hear the sound!
The music is dominated by a pompous 80s-sound and includes the bombastic opener “Nothing”, the stomp-hits “Forbidden” and “The Message”, and the catchy, anthem-like title-track at the end of the album.
Focused more into the music we shall be able to hear fantastic riffing, shining guitar leads and a bombastic rhythm section\ and all those elements in the melodic US Metal way!!!! This is the Metal the way we like it! Oh I almost forgot: I love the keyboard parts Adam Emmons they fit 100% to the band's material.
The production is good and does justice to the compositions. So you will be able to enjoy this album really LOUD!
Well enough written, you should go and get this masterpiece right now! You will never regret it! Some high class US steel is waiting for you! Do not miss it!
