Martyr - Circle Of 8 - DigipackSKU: 0039841505726
I must admit, hearing this album made me think I was in the 1980s for sure. It is very rare to hear a band that pumps out that classic metal anymore and hearing it from a band that actually started in the 80s is very nostalgic. The guitar and vocals really make this album, but the drums aren’t to forget either. The riffs are very old school yet bringing in a more heavy style. The solos are fast, smooth and flow well. Rop van Haren is a very extraordinary vocalist and he reminds me of two people, Ronnie James Dio and Mark Osegueda from Death Angel. This album sure makes me have faith that classic metal is not dead yet and that Martyr is here for a comeback. I cannot wait to hear more new stuff from them and I hope some day I get to see them live. "Wheelingrampage 9/10"
