ROAD OF BONES
CRUZ DEL SUR
Hailing from Austin, TX, the classic metal revivalist outfit Ignitor unleash their traditional metal wares on ROAD OF BONES, an 11-track affair that is metal down to the core. Shredding guitars, fantasy-style lyrics exalting metal and all of its excess, and lots of spikes and leather suits this female-fronted quintet best on tracks like "God of Vengeance" and "Phoenix". There's no question that if you like Helloween, Iron Maiden, and Primal Fear that there's something on this disc that you'll find to your liking, especially if the mid-tempo Priest-esque epic vibe of "Broken Glass" is right up your alley.
