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 HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
