This Pasadena five-piece soars somewhere between old-thrash revisionists like Warbringer and more NWOBHM-ish traditionalists like their ex-mates White Wizzard. They sound way more tuneful than the former, but darker and more violent than the latter. And they're good at it, mixing harmonies, gang shouts, show-offy shredding, Wishbone Ash-lovely tapestries, and (thankfully rare) death-metal grunts into their sky-crashing Valhalla-battle attack. They even do a semi-classical instrumental called "Nocturne in D Minor." But their pinnacle is the majestic, anthemic, indelible "Chase the Wind."
