TIR - Heavy Metal Review

back to reviews

Artist: TIR

Album: Heavy Metal

Released: 2011

A mixture of styles and genres: Heavy Metal


Where was this band in the 80s, may I ask?! Yes, there were demos once, but still, it is not what can be available to all people, and this band was obliged to be well-known as early as those times. I do not know, whether they played just like they did on this album in the 80s, but here we have amazing Heavy with the elements of Power, which completely corresponds to all traditions of those years; even the sound is not stylized, but sounds as if it was recorded back then.
What can I say about the musicians' work? The singer has recommended himself in Rosae Crucis as a very good vocalist, who is perfectly fit for such music long ago, so, this work in TIR did a power of good to the whole thing. And the fact that he sings in Italian only adds colour to the music. The guitar solos are quite vivid and interesting and overall, as far as the guitars and rhythm section are concerned, they bear the main historical load of the music, and namely their sound generates that unforgettable effect of the music of the 80s.
If we consider the songs particularly, they are quite catchy, have good melodies and some variety apart from all my praiseful words about the spirit of the 80s on this album.
Well, sometimes we lack albums like this one nowadays, the pure Heavy, which is not spoiled by the modern follies, Heavy of those times, which can never be returned, but which are expressed in the sound of this band so vividly and naturally.
