Despite my love of extremely esoteric metal there is still something in me that is still in love with the poignant and over the top side of metal. Heavylution provide exactly this, and their new record Children Of Hate gives you a fierce glimpse into what they are all about. There is a sense of heavy metal might that runs through their punchy guitar riffs and soaring vocals. While the songwriting does feel a tad clunky here and there the overall vibe the band is going for is easily achieved. There is something strangely poetic about what Heavylution do. You feel yourself falling in love with their melodic guitar lines that provide a tasty counterpoint to the crunching rhythm guitars that give depth to the verses. Heavylution are fun to listen too and get at what made me love heavy metal so much in the first place. Their fusion of thrash metal with power metal and even a few NWOBHM ideas is a lot of fun and makes for a exciting overall concept. As the band evolve things are only get better so hope on the bandwagon and enjoy the ride!
