TNT are a band from Norway that has a very long history and plays more of a hard rock orientated from of heavy metal and this is a review of their live 2014 album "30th Anniversary 1982-2012 Live In Concert" which was released by Indie Recordings.
The album starts out with a symphony and classical orchestra and after the intro they keep the orchestra but add in more of an 80's hard rock metal sound along with some melodic vocals and the music has more of a radio friendly orientated sound from that era and they also bring in some solos and leads that utilize a great amount of talent and skill.
You can hear the earlier traces of glam and pop metal in the bands musical style along with some back up chorus vocals and the guitar riffing also utilizes a great amount of melody and at times you can also hear a little bit of a 70's metal influence on the bands musical style as well as the vocals bringing in elements of NWOBHM.
As the album progresses you can hear clean playing in certain sections of the recording along with the crowd singing the songs with the band and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they also bring in a few power ballads and a few instrumental guitar solos and symphonic songs while the main focus remains more on a hard and heavy sound.
TNT sticks to the sound they are known for throughout the recording while also having the back up of an orchestra and all of the songs are in more of a pop metal orientated direction while you can also hear a bit of 70's metal and NWOBHM in their musical sound at times, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding recording from TNT and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this live album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invisible Noise" "As Far As The Eye Can See" "Northern Lights" and "10,000 Lovers (In One)". 8 out of 10.
