This is the new album of Gaskin, which is a well known N.W.O.B.H.M. band. They released two full length albums back in the ’80s, titled “End of the World and “No Way Out”, which I really like.
In 2000 they released the album “Stand or Fall”. A couple of months ago they also released an EP, “The Contract”. Now they release their fourth full length album. The members that remain from the old Gaskin,line-up is the vocalist/guitarist Paul Gaskin and the drummer Dave Norman. Their new album is a hard rock/heavy metal mix with an emphasis on melodies. I would say that the album is quite good (even though I would prefer it to be more heavy metal oriented) while the classy guitar parts are the advantage of the album. The tunes that stand out are “Heart Like Thunder” and “Bedlam”. In conclusion this is an interesting album for the fans of hard rock and heavy metal especially for those who like nice guitar melodies. Also I think that the album will please the old fans of Gaskin,
P.S. I really like the cover of “Edge of Madness”!!
P.S. 2: The song Bedlam” was also on “The contract” EP of the band.
