GARDEN OF CHAOS
Former Impelliterri throat Rob Rock returns with another batch of brazenly uplifting metal
on GARDEN OF CHAOS. This 11-track sturdy yet somewhat formulaic offering properly showcases the excellence of Rock's trademark soaring vocals while doubling as an exercise in power metal guitar fury on cuts like "Ride the Wind" and "Spirit in the Sky". Fortifying the music with fists full of nasty riffs and classic metal compositions like "Satan's Playground", purists from the heyday of early metal will have no problem cranking tracks like "Only a Matter of Time" and overall will find few flaws on this well-executed disc.
