Rock, Rob - Holy Hell


Year of Release: 2005
Label: AFM Records
Catalog Number: AFM CD-091-2
Format: CD
Total Time: 00:00:00

Evaluation:

Power metal with traditional metal and NWOBHM overtones, Rob Rock's latest release has a little bit of everything for fans of Iron Maiden, Vicious Rumors, and really any band you can name that falls under the "power" tag?

Analysis:

Mr. Rock and company have delivered a set of gargantuan riffs, cinematic in scope, guaranteed to incite lockstep, despite lyrics that teeter between pomposity and pusillanimous bravado ?

Rating:

3.5 /5 (the plus is for the killer production, superb guest soloing by Carljohan Grimmark, and Bobby Jarzombek's drumming)

Summary:

First rate power metal, guaranteed to satiate your worst cravings - that is, if you can swallow the lyrics?.
