War Cloud – War Cloud

War Cloud – War Cloud
Ripple Music – 2017
Rock, Classic, Hard, Metal, Seventies, Speed, Doom, Stoner
Rated: ****

If you ever feel like you were born in the wrong age. If the music of that golden era of rock tickles your fancy way more than everything brought out today. If you still bang your head to early eighties hardrock and metal. Well, War Cloud is here for you. On their debut full-sized self-titled release, the quartet sounds so classic you almost immediately recognize some of their dual guitar as Thin Lizzy love and the vocal mannerism as Hetfield hankering. But they definitely do not cop out in copying the bands or sounding like a rip-off; this is musical affection and an idolization of all that goodness of yesteryear. And they manage to do all that classic stuff, and infuse some speedrock, doom and stoner. But above all War Cloud expertly navigates through the dirty waters of heavy rock and early metal. Never colliding with either one and staying their very own course the entire length of the way. And it makes you want to join their merry band of pirates. Cause every one of those eight tracks on the record is killer! Killer to a default!
