Classic melodic-metalheads will appreciate P.J. Zitarosa and his mates, who bring virtuosity to every measure. “Speed of Evil” exemplifies the band, with not only Zitarosa’s guitar histrionics, but a level of drum dazzlement that’s a real gas to behold. (We only wish the guitar solo took things to a higher level, but instead it flatlines.) “I Surrender” epitomizes old-school metal where soaring axe harmonics and wailing, high-range lead vocals rule. Overall, we advise the band to enlist a producer/mixer who can correct some fundamental level issues. For example, the guitars are often buried or are louder in the verses than in the choruses, which ultimately undermines the dramatic punch of the songs.
