VANTAGE POINT - Demonic Dinner Dance/Driller Killer EP Review




VANTAGE POINT - Demonic Dinner Dance/Driller Killer EP
Independent

VANTAGE POINT is a veteran strong heavy metal band from Scotland and thanks to Facebook and my friend Leo, I saw a post about ‘em that caught my attention!!!!

VANTAGE POINT exists in discography since 2008 including 7 recordings… 3 full albums, 2 CD EPs and 2 different digital single releases all the way from 2008 to present.

The band is a case of a hidden diamond with great heavy/power metal blended with N.W.O.B.H.M. and they are placed among my heavy metal pantheon along with bands such as the STAIRWAY and the DEEP (both based in the UK).

As far as it concerns music in both releases, VANTAGE POINT act as a solid heavy metal fist producing great heavy metal anthems and all members work as one solid great working machine with nice vocals, steel metal riffs  and a tight rhythm section.

“Demonic Dinner Dance” was released in 2014 and actually it is a concept album rich with a total of 17 songs and will keep interested any fans of the N.W.O.B.H.M., RAGE, SAXON, JUDAS PRIEST; you know the good old true metal stuff!!! With an 80’s feeling in the production just like you used to hear on a vinyl record back then!!!!

The “Driller Killer” EP (2008) is a fine example of traditional heavy metal and a diamond in rust for every heavy metal CD collector. 5 hymns with “Stressed Out” and “Motor Man” being my favorites!!

Well VANTAGE POINT stands for straight 80s heavy metal music, so I’m glad to know this band!!!
