Salem's Lot

So here's a band I've wanted to review for a while, (I've been on a Judas Priest kick) and these guys more or less deliver. This band has some powerful riffs solos that smell of The Number of the Beast a heavy bass, decent Priesty drums and Halford like lyrics. The guitars are a big aspect of this band and they have some really nice riffs. The way some of them are constructed actually reminds me a lot of some of the Maiden tracks on Dance of Death. There is a riff and then underneath a tasty little solo. The bass is loud and solid especially on Cold Blooded Killer where a thudding bass line adds some soul to the song. Finally the vocals are aggressive and are a bit of a combination of Iggy Pop and Rob Halford. The singer retains good qualities from both for some decent vocals. Listen to this band for some fun old fashioned NWOBHM type music.
