(Fighter Records) A veritable institution of classic Spanish metal, for some years the heavy / power response to the heavy / NWOBHM of Tierra Santa, Vhaldemar follow up on the excellent "Against all Kings" and bring us, for theirsixth full-length, “Straight to Hell”! "Death to the Wizard!" it is an arduous start, between the power of the Wizard and the melody of certain Hammerfalls, especially those of the first three discs; “Afterlife” is likewise a jackhammer, with a fat and convincing sound. A merciless (but always melodic) steamroller is “Damnation's Here”; “Fear” inclines to a caciarone and rattling hard rock, while the riff of “Black Mamba” is serpentine. The 'lentone' of substance takes the name of “When It's All Over”, with some references to Grave Digger more than atmosphere; it closes with the hypermelodic “Old King's Vision (Part VII)”, the last section of a series already started in 2002, which contains the best refrain of the album and also some spirited keyboards a la Feinstein soloist. Maybe a little less than the record that preceded it,but always a great test of set, rattling, 'ignorant' Iberian heavy metal!
