RENEGADE - Thunder Knows No Mercy
Pure Underground Records
RENEGADE is an Italian heavy metal band that was formed in 2006 and they have already released four studio albums. Their new album which is their fifth has the impressive title “Thunder Knows No Mercy” and it finds them on a new label. I had the chance to listen to their previous albums and I think that their new beginning finds them faithful to their original sound. RENEGADE musically play traditional heavy metal inspired both by the European and the U.S. metal scene and they like to throw some speed even thrash metal parts in their compositions from time to time. Their trademark is the riffs and the high pitching vocals and I have to say that in their new album there were moments that brought to my mind good old ICED EARTH. Their new album is a traditional heavy metal release that wants to offer some good time to the listener and it succeeds in that part. If you search for something groundbreaking then RENEGADE is not for you, because their thunder knows no mercy, but only for the true heavy metal fans.
