This is the 3rd review of an album from "Battlerage called "True Metal Victory" which was released by Metal On Metal Records during t he year of 2011 continuing the heavy/power metal sound of previous recordings.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine heavy and power metal together while also using some melody as well as faster riffing that almost goes into thrash/speed metal mode, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding power/heavy metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when t hey are utilized they use finger picking to bring more epic elements to the recording.
Vocals are all clean singing heavy metal vocals along with a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics continue the dark, fantasy and true metal themes of the previous recordings, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Battlerage and if you are a fan of heavy/power metal, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Return Of The Axe Men" "Raw Metal" "The Serpent's Slumbers" and "Warlock's Epitaph". RECOMMENDED BUY.
