BLASDEAD Ground Flare Majestic Rock (2007)

Is there a New Wave of Japanese Heavy Metal?

Another new metal band from Japan on the Majestic Rock label, this new album is a stormer.

Opener 'Empty House' is ferocious, solid heavy metal. Melodic speed metal with a nod at Helloween. A modern and more polished Raven.

A touch of roughness to the vocals that remain coherent, near machine gun drums, late 80s era high fire Priest guitar.

While the music is good, with some great guitar moments, it is in places ordinary, occasionally disjointed.

At times the vocals sound a little forced, but as we go on you get kinda used to it.

'Triumph Over Hardships' features some great guitar work.

Enough good moments, some of this Jap metal should be checked out.
