Axe Crazy are a band from Poland that plays a very traditional form of heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Angry Machines".
A very heavy, old school and melodic metal sound starts off the ep along with a mixture of riffs and leads and a few seconds alter clean singing vocals are added into the music along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and release d in the early 80's.
Most of the music on this ep sticks to mostly a mid paced direction and they also add in a great amount of anthem style heavy metal songs as well as going back to the days where heavy metal was just heavy metal and you can hear all of the best elements of the mid 70's and early 80's in the bands musical style and at times the band also brings in some early speed and power metla elements into their musical style.
Axe Crazy brings in a very pure form of heavy metal on the 4 songs they bring onto the ep and they can play this genre as well as the legends and originators of this genre, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover science fiction, social issues and heavy metal themes.
In my opinion Axe Crazy are a very great sounding traditional heavy metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Angry Machines" and "Sabertooth Tiger". 8/5 out of 10.
