1945 - 'Heavy Metal is Not For Sale' - Reviewed By Obliveon ! Check it out here at this link: https://obliveon.de/review/1945-heavy-metal-is-not-for-sale/
If you read the band name 1945 like this, you could first think of a War Black Metal band – colleague Ingo, don't get nervous... – but it is by no means.
Why one chooses this name as a classic metal band from the homeland of Don Quixote, namely Salamanca, is not clarified here, but does not detract from the quite existing quality of 1945. The Iberians get an increased recognition value from the rough vocals of their frontwoman Sarah Garcia, whose tube fits well with the heavy metal.
Tracks like the fast banger 'From Hell', the predominantly mid-tempo 'Perfect Final' with its anthemic part and the driving 'Talk', which then goes over stomping mid tempo and ends as a sluggish banger, as well as the classic headbanger material delivering 'Lost Dream' are crisp and get out of the boxes well.
On top of that, there is a cover version of 'Ace Of Spades'; is a bit sucked out as a cover title, but is crisply intoned by the band and Sarah's vocals also fit quite well, which I have to attest to her as a seasoned Motörhead Fanatic.
A typical metal cover rounds off the debut work appropriately. I'm curious to see what else will come......
