Metalsteel are a band from Slovenia that plays a very traditional form of metal with progressive touches and this is a review of their 2014 album "This Is your Revelation" which was released by On Parole Productions.
The album starts out with a very heavy and old school traditional metal sound along with some melodic vocals a few seconds later and after awhile hard rock elements and back up vocals are added into the album which eventually leads up to guitar solos and leads becoming a part of the music.
When the album goes into other songs the music sticks to a regular heavy metal sound while also adding in a good amount of melody and at time s the band also brings in some progressive elements and the music sticks to mostly 80s sound from beginning to end while also bringing in modern trace s into certain sections of the recording as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after awhile you can hear a brief use of clean playing and spoken word samples being utilized at times.
When we go more into the album acoustic guitars are brought on one track and brings in a ballad which has a 70's folk rock feeling to it before returning back to a heavier direction on the following track.
With this album Metalsteel go back to the true form of heavy metal of the early 80's while also adding in prog elements as well as a very modern day sounding production to update this genre for 2014.
Song lyrics cover philosophical, political and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Metalsteel are a very great sounding traditional heavy metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "New Way Of Thinking" "New Messiah" "Godfather Of Nothingness" and "A Long Time Ago". 8 out of 10.
