Erratic Escape is a new band from Thessaloniki. They were formed in 2007 and have released two demos so far. Their first demo was called “Just Erratic” (2009) and their second one “Unleashed”.This is their debut album from Iron On Iron Records which has released a couple of nice albums recently (from Dark Nightmare and Validor). The band’s style is heavy/ speed metal and I wouldn’t say that they brought to my mind any particular act. Their album is good and it flows pleasantly. The production is good, the guitar work is very good and the vocals reach a certain level of quality but the singer has to improve his accent. The songs that I enjoyed more were “Medieval”, “Unfriendly Times” and “The Man with the Thousand Faces”. The album is being released by the Greek Iron On Iron Records (Dark Nightmare, Validor, Skullfist, etc) and has an interesting cover and a nice 12 page booklet.In conclusion this is one of the very good albums for 2012 and all fans of heavy metal and speed/thrash metal should hear it!!! We are waiting for their next step!!
