MESSIAH’S KISS - Get Your Bulls Out!
Do you remember the German – U.S. metal band MESSIAH’S KISS and the four very good albums they have released (especially their debut which is great)? If yes, then you will be happy to know that they are back. If you don’t then there is no problem at all because the band makes a new start with this release in a bit different musical style that they have got us used to with their previous releases. The band, in the first three albums, was playing heavy/power meta, but after their main composer had some health problems (George Kraft (guitars) which was actually the main reason why the band was put to ice for so long, they have tried a different method of composing songs. In the new album all the members have offered ideas and the songwriting process got more democratic and I think that this is obvious from the variety the songs have. Actually the new MESSIAH’S KISS album is mainly a hard rock oriented album with some heavy metal elements and no power metal at all. Ok, this might disappoint most of their old fans, but no matter how we see it, I think that the band did a quality job and after all musicians have the right to experiment with their sound as long as in their next release they return to their natural sound (hehe just kidding). So, hard and heavy is what you will get here which is supported greatly by the voice of Mike Tirelli who sounds like a combination of Dio, Coverdale and Halford. If you like bands like RIOT (in their hard rock days), PRETTY MAIDS and Q5, then you will enjoy this release.
