Welcome The Dead

Welcome The Dead
(Massacre Records - 2011)

As it is their debut album we should be nice to the new band Hunted, but in that case they have to live up to the expectations, otherwise it's hard to give a good grade for this debut. They try to follow the path that was laid out through NWoBHM but in fact all the songs lacks that vital sharpness and fuel that is so essential for a good album. The songs are of middle quality, good and fast guitar work, but the heart is not really in it. The drummer Matt Thomas tend to dominate the scene too much, and vocalist Chris G. is trying too hard to come out of the Bruce Dickinson shadow as a singer, but unfortunately with too much screaming on his part. Only the last song, The Heart Collector, can save a little bit of this album with good and energyloaded heavy metal where they finally find themselves.

5 stars
