VHÄLDEMAR - Straight to Hell - Reviewed By All Around Metal! Check it out here at this link: http://www.allaroundmetal.com/component/content/article?id=7719:vhaldemar,-una-bomba-sonora-power-heavy-che-rimbomba-nelle-nostre-orecchie
A tracklist full of adrenaline that places, one after the other, a dozen not indifferent hits driven by the guitars of leader Pedro J Monge and by the hoarse and scratchy uvula of Carlos Escudero. The heavy-power of the Iberian quintet is really rocky and takes its cue from the Teutonic scene in a lethal mix between Accept. Primal Fear and Iron Savior, with a full-bodied production and a modern touch. Compared to the time of the debut - "Fight to the End" of 2002 - here we have a totally different band, another world in terms of compositional and executive skills. The Vhaldemar of today are a group with controcazzi and they show it by alternating some very powerful mid-tempos like "Death to the Wizard!" and the title track to fast songs like the bursting “My Spirit” and the sensational “Damnation's Here”. And what about a song like “Black Mamba”, a power song obviously dedicated to the myth of the basketball world, that Kobe Bryant who left us only a few months ago, at the beginning of this damned year 2020? Maximum respect!
“ Death To The Wizard !” is the new video clip of the Spanish Heavy Metal band VHÄLDEMAR , their 6th album " Straight to Hell ", which will be released on October 6th, 2020 on CD, 12"LP and Cassette formats through Fighter Records , MDD Records in G/A/S and Red Rivet Records in Japan.
