God's Army A.D are a band from Germany that plays a melodic mixture of hard rock and heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album which was released by Massacre Records.
A hard rock style sound starts off the album before adding in a more metal style along with some melodic vocals and the music sounds very 80's but with a more modern approach and they bring in a great amount of guitar solos and leads that have a great amount of melody to them along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
There are a great amount of NWOBHM elements in their musical sound along with a small amount of pop metal elements while they are a bit heavier than that genre and closer to a pure metal style and they also have fast riffs being utilized at times which are true to old school metal and later on they bring in a power ballad along with a small dose of symphonic sounds before returning back to a harder direction on the following tracks.
God's Army A.D take a very old school rock orientated form of heavy and traditional metal and updates it for the modern day along with a great amount of melody, the production is very professional sounding and the lyrics cover society, politics and life.
In my opinion Gods Army A.D are a very great sounding melodic mixture of hard rock and traditional metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "City Lights" "Hear You Scream" and "God's Army". 8 out of 20.
