AXE STEELER – ON THE RUN (Iron Shield Records)

Review by Bert VD Abeele: Axe Steeler released their first full-length album called “On The Run”. These young, but very talented, Colombians play true old-school heavy metal with obvious passion for the music. The music is played with some clear thrash metal influences, which can only be considered as a good thing in my opinion.

The vocals are mostly clean, but here and there there are some fittingly raw parts as well. The album starts off with a song from their first EP (Back To The Stage) before going into the new material. This is definitely a band to be followed and this album will certainly please all you heavy/thrash metal fans out there.

At times the tracks make me think of a cleaner, more melodic version of the almighty Venom. Check ‘em out at:

My rating: 89/100 (Good in its own genre, recommended for those hooked on it)
