Wizard

Head of the Deceiver

Limb

Excellent pure True Metal war cries! Hwaet! If you’re not into metal, you are not my friend! And other pro-metal statements. Just looking at the album cover had me reaching for my axe and helmet. Seconds later, I was in full armor banging my head wildly while this thundering power thrash metal onslaught brought me to Angry Viking Ecstasy!

Album cover: True Metal warriors displaying their banners: an axe(!), the sign of Thulsa Doom, a Hammer, and in the center the Metal chieftain holds up the freshly decapitated head of, of• probably a fan of Britney Spears (whoops). Dig these song titles: “Defenders Of Metal,” “Iron War,” “True Metal,” and of course, the title track. This is an incredible album of violent power metal – something necessary to my survival! Argh!
