The opening title "And So It Begins" is apt as this new EP from the midlands' finest Vicious Nature delights and excites the listener.

I love the dramatic build-up as you prepare for the Heavy Metal onslaught of death-defying tuneage that is set to follow!
A true to the core Metal track streams out of your speakers as "Darkest Desires" pounds into the room with its massive guitar riffs mixed with a heady rhythm section, all capped with the power-driven vocals of Matt Gore gets you in a chokehold and pummels you into submission with its fierce delivery. 

The band shows their darker side with the title track "Shadowlands" my favorite on here it is so catchy and works its magic as I keep replaying this monster tune. The metal riffs just come thick and fast on the superb "Fever", It its the old-school metal attributes of harsh guitar riffs and big drums mixed with those phenomenal vocals that make the hairs on your neck stand up on end.
Matt Gore again shows his vocal might along with Andy Southwells relentless riff building and the thunderous rhythm section of JB Brown and  Declan Parry keeping it all together as the delicious "Sanctuary of Souls" casts a spell on you.

The band comes out all guns blazing on the rifftastic, "Fever" This is a metal as it comes, full on under a head of steam, the headbanging express just keeps on rolling as the band unleashes hell the rhythm section bombards this one with a thunderous bass and a pounding drum beat, and a massive track to,  one for the traditionalists out there, as the old school metal is allowed to run free.


This rounds off a stellar EP from the band and will surely put them back on the metal map in 2024.
