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 CRYSTAL EYES

You cannot go wrong with Sweden's CRYSTAL EYES. If the combination of Classic Heavy Metal with European Power Metal -and especially its Teutonic version- was and still is your cup of tea, then this band is the absolute must. They are moving closely to the 30th year of their existence and they have released their 8th "Starbourne Traveler" full length. We had a very interesting conversation with the band's main man Mikael Dahl, he was pretty kind and he had a nice story to share about pretty much everything: The 90s demo era, the first record deal, the live shows and the line up changes, not to mention his album by album comments. Grab a cold beer -or whatever you prefer to drink- and enjoy the interview!
