Gun Barrel are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of hard rock, heavy and power metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Damage Dancer" which was released by Massacre Records.
The album starts out with an intro with guitar noises and sounds and after the intro the music goes into a more old school metal direction along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and a few seconds alter vocals and hard rock elements start to kick in and after awhile solos and leads are added into the music.
When the album goes into other songs the music becomes a music of 70's hard rock/metal close to NWOBHM and power metal while also bringing a more modern feeling to it and they also stay away from power ballads and the album sticks to a hard and heavy sound from beginning to end.
With this album Gun Barrel go back to t he mid 70's and take the hard rock, heavy metal and NWOBHM genres from that time and mix it in with power metal and a modern production to create a sound of their own.
Song lyrics cover fantasy, darkness and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can h ear all of the musicla instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Gun Barrel are a very great sounding mixture of hard rock, heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this b and. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Damage Dancer" "Building A Monster" "Ride the Dragon" and "Vultures Are Waiting". 8 out of 10.
