TEARS OF ANGER In The Shadows Lion Music (2006)

The band focus around brothers Benny and Bjorn Jansson (Therion/Mind’s Eye) who are joined by bass player Johan Niemann and a man who seems to grace many a metal release of late, Mind’s Eye drummer Daniel Flores. There are some cracking metal numbers on here like ‘Tears In My Eyes’ (very Priest like in guitar sound) and ‘Full of Lies’ which really puts the pedal to the metal. ‘I Hate You’ has the sort of chorus refrain that sticks in your head even after just one spin, whilst the band do branch out into semi-ballad territory on ‘Sell My Soul’. Vocalist Bjorn has a strong metal voice but he is no screamer and if anything he has a bluesy edge at times which suits the music well. The riffs on here are top draw and are reminiscent of Zakk Wylde’s work with Ozzy.

A good, solid melodic metal release that keeps OTT soloing to a minimum, instead focusing on short, sharp blasts of tuneful metal. Crank it up!
