After a lengthy break from release activity, Welsh-borne Progressive Heavy Metal act HUNTED returns stronger than ever with their sophomore full-length effort "Deliver Us".
Now operating as a quartet consisting of arch-wailer Chris G, axeman Steve Barberini along with the habile rhythm section of bassist Jon Letson and drummer Matt "Animal" Thomas, the band has spent their time wisely; improving upon their compositional and instrumental skills to offer us this mercurial blend of Heavy Metal's past, present and future. Painstakingly refined into maximum alchemical combustion by the expert hand of Sonic One Studios' producer Tim Hamill, the new material sees the four-piece up the ante in regard to the successful formula established on their praised debut album "Welcome the Dead" (2010, Massacre Records), arriving at an updated mode of expression that can only be described as a highly distinctive amalgamation of North American and European Progressive Heavy/Power Metal.
Considering the nature of the eleven incredibly versatile tracks that constitutes "Deliver Us", HUNTED does not paint themselves into this or that stylistic corner, and will surely appeal to a wider listener base as well. As a sign of their broad musical ground, HUNTED has chosen to include a lush and ample cover of Spanish cult act ANGELES DEL INFIERNO's "Maldito Sea Tu Nombre", sung entirely in Spanish, of course. The cover song will be a bonus track on the CD edition of the album.
Absolutely an excellent and solid power/heavy metal album! all the tracks are well written and put! The fact that I can't stop hearing this all the time, means that these guys know exactly what to do in order to deliver fresh, heavy, quality and power metal music! imagine all this in a perfect production! totally deserve all the support you can give! 🤘
P.S.: the favorite track is really hard to find and can change every day between all the songs! georgor
