Label(s):
Gates of Hell Records
Released Year:
2022
Type:
EP
Tracklist:
1. Killer for Hire2. Megalomaniac

After their demo and the EP in 2019, SOLICITOR from Seattle, Washington, deputed in 2020 with the album Spectral Devastation, leaving many promises with their heavy/speed metal style. All Debts on Death, is their brand-new EP which will be released in 7″ vinyl, as well as in digital form.

The album contains two new songs, and the fans of old-school metal will be thrilled. The first song, “Killer for Hire” is a 7-minute speed metal hymn which brings in mind the best moments of the 80’s. Those who miss LIEGE LORD or AGENT STEEL will discover a new favorite song of this kind of metal.

The second song is called “Megalomanic” and it is a bit more thrashy and less speed/power metal than “Killer for Hire”. It brings out a “fast and chaotic” aspect of the band, and it is closer perhaps to first records of EXCITER.

This new release keeps the fans of SOLICITOR warm until their next full-length album, and shows that the band is still in good creative mood. The two tracks are good, and especially “Killer for Hire” has all the makings of the golden era of the 80s US speed/power metal. Good job, and a nice appetizer of what is about to follow.

Check the release on bandcamp.

WARLORD: The legend of William J Tsamis lives – Interview and...

To tell you the truth I was a little bit skeptical when I first learned about the Warlord tribute project set by drummer and founding member Mark Zonder and singer Giles Lavery to honor the music and memory of founder guitarist William J Tsamis who unfortunately passed away back in 2021. I was looking at the facts very closely, reading announcements about forthcoming live shows, new line up and a new album. The response from the fans was massive including both positive and negative (or very negative) comments about the above facts. "How can Warlord exist without Bill Tsamis?", they were asking. One afternoon I got a call from Giles Lavery himself asking me if I wanted to do an advance review of the forthcoming Warlord album. I replied positively still being in this skeptical mood. It all went away after the first listen... William J Tsamis was there. His music, his legend, his compositions, evolved into complete songs. In total excitement I texted Giles a single message "Bill is alive". The very next evening found Mark, Giles and I talking about the album, about Bill, about the music and the legacy. It was late at night when we ended the call. I asked them if I can publish our conversation and they got no problem. So here it is again: Me talking with Warlord. The usual stuff I am doing the last 25 years for various reasons. But this time I would not call this conversation an interview. To my eyes this is a big ethical, artistic and soulful statement, by some people who want to keep the Dream, alive.
