Dark And Cold

Dark And Cold
(Massacre Records - 2011)

Garagedays are truly searching for the power metal sound from 80's as they feel it is their speciality, and it's hard to argue with them on this point. Until now Garagedays has rehearsed intensively and in 2007 they had 2 demos called Wild And Dangerous, the other was called Leather And Spikes. More songwriting came along, heavy metal and power metal, and now they have 2 albums ready, Sight Of The Blind, and the album Dark And Cold. It has finally become time for Garagedays to release their debut full-length album, and it is Dark And Cold that hit the streets.

From the first vibrations from the speakers it is clear that Garagedays takes it seriously with good and competent power metal, filled with juicy guitar riffs, the first song Last Breath is a fine example of this genuine style. Lord Of Darkness supplies more dark metal from the old school genre, but still filled with power. The song Father could be inspired by Alice Cooper, brutal supreme heavy metal with both slow and fast elements. Blow Away is a sweeping dominating song, melodious and not far from the things that Judas Priest come with. Conscience is also typical 80's metal full speed ahead with a power level to shake the ground. The final song is the title track Dark And Cold, and just as you thought it couldn't be any more powerful Dark And Cold gives it another dimension where the guitar-driven overpowered sound pulverizes the surroundings with massive energy.
