Sweden has a hell of a pedigree for producing Hard Rocking Metal Maestros and continuing this tradition are the Mighty Screamer founded in 2007 , having released  two Albums to date  "Hell Machine" is the bands third release and its a pure traditional Metal platter to enthuse , have you singing along and bouncing the night away. Opening with "Alive" the band deliver some catchy riffs with a head thumping back beat ,this is a great start as the guys kick out some nifty grooves with the bands new Vocalist Andreas Wikström  fully delivering the goods for these Swedes.

 

The next two songs are Album highlights "I'm on my Way" races out of  your speakers with Anton Fingal and Dejan Rosić twin  Guitars assaulting and battering your senses combined with the rhythm section of  Fredrik Svensson on  Bass and  Henrik Petersson  Drums this is a sure fire winning impressive song!

Next we have the title track  "Hell Machine" this cries out for regular airplay on the radio its heavy and deliriously addictive as you sing the chorus along with these Scandinavians , the Riffs are superb and the "whoa a woahs" will go down well live, this is a Metal Anthem for sure.

 

 

 "Lady of The Night"  bleeds Old School Metal, it wouldn't have  been out of place in the early Eighties, its a flamboyant killer track and my favourite on the album. "Warrior" opens slowly then mutates into a chunky , juddering  train of Metallic grooves.

When I first saw the Track listing I was a bit worried the Band had done their own version of Saxons "Denim and Leather" but worry not it isn't, This is Screamers very own "Denim and Leather" its a horn inducing, head shaking Anthem that they can be very proud of , this is  another one to have the crowd joining in with the guys for the chorus.  "Monte Carlo Nights" is the heaviest song , its a pounding , rampaging  beast , punch the air and bang that head too!

 

Final song "The Punishment" brings things to a close , its a belting , pulsating end to this Old School Metal inspired  animal. 

To sum up having made big waves in the past by playing Summerbreeze and Rock Hard Festival in 2014,  The Band Have had  a few line up changes since then but with a new singer in Anders and Bassist Fredrik on board  the band seem to be a settled unit and ready again to let loose and deliver their  very own "Hell Machine" upon the world!
