I have been bingeing on this album for the last few weeks. Musically, it reminds me of early Europe mixed with some Mad Max. I like the singers vox, too. It's a short listen too at just under 40 minutes, so I play it almost every night. I am sure most of you already have heard it, but maybe a few converts will be made. Enjoy

Amazing album indeed. I picked it up on cd at Eat Metal Records in Athens almost a year and a half ago.

Regular spinner in my car. You need to own this.

Europe mixed with some Mad Max ? Interesting. I sense a touch of Malmsteen too.
UFO. Whitesnake, if Coverdale was singing. Sounds great to me - today !
I have noticed the album and the design for years now , but just never purchased it.
The design looks like a claw / or a razor blade.
Like Icon's s/t album - mixture of colors. Somewhat expensive....27 bucks.
Cool share.

Dude! I found that some time ago on accident (YouTube nails it with their music algorithm) and meant to bring it up but completely forgot, so thanks for the reminder. I was kind of surprised by how it captivated me despite its lower-key approach. There's definitely some later Rainbow in here, and one track reminded me of Asia(!). Not a single musician stands out as a virtuoso, in fact some of the solos are downright phoned in, but that songs are tightly wound and keep one going. The album also does a rare thing and gets better as it goes along. The last track should be longer, it's epic! Cool find Sentinel.

I knew you would have it, Gil. Smile I will probably grab a copy next week when my budget starts over, as I have bought a dozen or so discs and records the last few weeks.

I know the band logo is "whooshing" towards us all 3 d like, but the "claw" concept is cool, Glower. I never thought of it that way. It has a sort of late '70's sound and vibe to it much like the bands you mentioned.

Good "mini review" there, Shay. I agree, it gets better as it goes along. I love the solo and guitar in "Woman" and agree that the last track is epic! Good call on the algorithm. I think it was August Redmoon that led me to find this one sometime around early January of this year.

We have been facing a severe capital control for the last few months now. Banks are in total crisis and so is the entire economy.

This has forced me to reduce my cd shopping, although I am still managing to buy stuff.

I was about to go to Greece again next week, and shop at Eat Metal Records.

The Corona outbreak has forced me to postpone my trip until early summer. Hopefully I will be able to pick up some interesting rarities once there headbanger.

I just ordered Traveler's s/t album on Amazon Very Happy.

So far I am fine headbanger.

Interesting. Never heard this one before but it sounds great!

I also like this German band called Universe:

Man, there is so much great Metal coming out of Germany.

No matter how much you discover, there is always much more!

Sooo, true!

A few weeks back, I added Victory and Vanize (thanks to you) to the want list. And the local Metal shop has all the early Sinner reissues on colored vinyl. So much good music and not enough time and money.

Vanize are very hard to find. It took me over 13 years to finally own all 4 studio albums (each from a different corner of the world). What a great band.

Their status on Metal Archives is listed as Active. I hope they really are and that we will be entitled to a new album. Couldn't find any current news about them on the internet.

Another excellent German metal band you need to check out is Trance. Their cds have been reissued and should be somewhat easy to find. One of my favourite songs by them is Heavy Metal Queen:
