To be honest I didn't thought that there is a metal band in Trinidad, but a friend told me about Tremor and so I wanted to check them out. Thanks to the band for giving me the chance to.
A rambling sound.. It gets louder... comes nearer, then the guitars start and heavy riffs lead you into a traditional heavy metal tune called Disembodied. The quintet speeds up a bit when singer Evan Moon joins in, but the double-bass drumming of Daniel Bessessar is only forcing them ahead for a moment. Singer Evan Moon varies from powerful melodic vocals to mean sounding parts. The Trinidadian present a mixture of power metal with a bit US metal. Songs like Seek, Tremor and Deceased are based on guitar riffing, but guitarists Terrance Sahatoo and Premchand Samsundar vary in speed, play twin guitar parts and Terrance is adding some cool guitar lines. The song J is starting quite melodic with guitars and some pounding bass and an interesting drum beat. Vocally more based in hard rock the song is a melodic metal track due to the powerful rhythm section and the guitar play. On Final Strike they are more heavy and growls and mean vocals give this one a different feeling.
Singer Evan Moon is a good singer, but sometimes I miss a bit power... But that's something they can work on. The guys present a certain variety and so the album isn't boring. Sure, there are things they can improve, but this band just started and with a good producer they can get to the next level.

This band hails from the most unlikely place.... Trinidad in the Caribbean. No, they do not play calypso core or reggae core or anything as such. What they do play is a pretty damn solid brand of traditional power metal with a distinctly modern feel without rap and other current trends. When listening it is not uncommon to hear some gallant Iron Maiden guitar work, e.g. take the song Deceased which could easily fit on any of the most recent 3 Iron Maiden CDs. Seek is a galloping metal track with a speed metal type chorus. Warriors Of Steele is a nod to the universal brotherhood of metal and is also a very solid song. Disembodied and Final Strike are the most modern sounding songs and they are well executed and bring to mind a little of the current Jag Panzer sound with a lot more groove while not sounding hardcore.
There is one rotten egg here, the song J which I simply can't understand. All in all this is a good introduction of this band to the world and I recommend it to any metal fan with a curious ear and a metal heart.
