This is a reissue of the classic same titled SCARLET debut. The band from Columbus, Ohio delivered an amazing mix of Melodic Metal and Hard Rock. Indeed there were many bands on the US delivering that very special type of sound back on the day, but what is that very special feature of SCARLET that made this record a special pick?

Well I would say their song writing, as they were successfully combining the classic Heavy Metal vibe -delivered the early 80s US way-, with some seriously catchy Hard Rock touches, but with some European -NWOBHM in particular- references as well (on the “She’s a Shud” and track for example).

Songs likes “She Tastes Like Metal”, “Can You Stay”, “Leave Em Burning” are the real deal if you want to play loud some catchy Steel. “Grave Desires” is also another little anthem that can be pointed as one of the top moments in this album.

Yes indeed, there is a party atmosphere all around the record, straight riffing and catchy vocal melodies that represents the “we came here to rock you” vibe of the band. This is the SCARLET debut.

Lost Realm Records re-releases this debut and gives everyone the chance to have it on CD for the very first time. The audio is remastered and there is a nice booklet full of photos, lyrics and info. So yeah, go for it!

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones.

Interview with SAVAGE MASTER

One of the most exciting and electrifying bands in today's occult heavy metal scene, for the past six years, SAVAGE MASTER have swiftly built an impressive canon of work over the course of two cult albums, one EP, one single, and especially their over-the-top live shows. The band was founded in 2013 by guitarist Adam Neal and vocalist Stacey Savage, so inspired by their love of heavy metal and horror. Soon enough, a mysterious spectacle was created, and it bore the name SAVAGE MASTER. From there, the band began their assured ascent through the underground, touring non-stop across North America and Europe, playing such festivals such as Keep It True, Hell Over Hammaburg, Legions of Metal, Frost and Fire, Ragnarokkr, Hells Heroes and many more, and now landing themselves an album deal with Shadow Kingdom Records. "Myth, Magic & Steel" album has been released, so this is a great chance for an interview with the band. Zippo tracks down vocalist Stacey Savage and he carries a bunch of very interesting questions. Lets take a look on the answers!
