WLM Reviews: Blitzkrieg – Reign of Fire

November 19, 2017

Probably like many of you, my familiarity with Blitzkrieg goes back to their influence on Metallica. Without Lars and Company touting the influence the NWOBHM band had on them, I may not have ever experienced Blitzkrieg’s music.

With Reign of Fire, we have an enjoyable two song EP dominated by the thing that really made Blitzkrieg so influential – the Heavy Metal riff. Both songs are mid-paced headbangers chock full of exemplary guitar work, sure to get heads moving. I can’t say Brian Ross was ever one of my favorite singers – and still can’t – but he isn’t really the draw for this show. He is on target, but man, those massive riffs are what I came for.

The title track shows that Blitzkrieg still has it and is unafraid to pound on us with their sonic assault. Groundbreaking, no. Just good old Metal sure to please some of us, ahem, more mature fans. Judge Not, aside from the unnecessary spoken dramatic section, is slightly heavier, if slower, than the previous, complete with some double bass and amped up aggression. Liking it, but of the two, I’ll take the title track.

Here’s a taste:

Not sure if this is a precursor to a coming full-length album or not. Either way, it’s always good to hear from some of the lesser known legends of the underground.
