ZARPA - Dispuestos para atacar
Pure Steel Records
A band that started in 1977, an era that heavy metal music was starting to grow little by little, and still is active and releases albums... Well this is an achievement that is worth to be admired. In all these years the hardest task to achieve is to create music that won’t get astray from the original sound of the band and yet to evolve and sound fresh. It is something that very few have achieved, especially if you consider that inspiration doesn’t come on demand. One band that has achieved this is SAXON and I think that ZARPA can say that have achieved the same thing.
In their new album ZARPA once again stay true to their roots and these are no other than bands like JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN and the N.W.O.B.H.M. sound in general. They do this though in their own personal way, since the band has a characteristic sound which is emphasized by the use of the Spanish language on the lyrics. The songs that are included here are characterized by the catchy melodies, the steady and accurate rhythm section and of course a convincing passion for heavy metal.
Once again ZARPA manage to sound fresh and offer us some good heavy metal songs which you will probably enjoy if you are a fan of the sound and the band.
