Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. You see, Herman Frank IS a veteran of the metal scene. He was in Accept when the band recorded Balls to the Wall, returned to Accept some years ago and played in a few bands in the meantime. Inhe recorded Loyal to None. Blazing riffs that quickly stick in your head? Face-melting solos? A great vocalist?
Check, check, check. The tracks on this album and the album itself as a whole are consistently excellent. Every track starts with a blazing riff, gets to the point and keeps the pace throughout. There are no dull moments you would gladly skip. Hell no. Herman knows what normal people want, songs that can be listened in their entirety, and delivers accordingly. Well, that takes care of guitars.
Jioti Parcharidis left and Rick Altzi came along. Jioti, on the other hand, has a bit of a Matt Barlow edge to his voice. Either way, Herman obviously knows how to choose a vocalist. The tracks would be excellent anyway, but Rick gives them even more punch, so to say. In fact, this album should be listened to as a whole. All in all, this is an album I would definitely recommend Criol Inganadu - Cabo Verde Show - Santa Catarina anyone and it can definitely compete with Loyal to None in every possible way.
Also, the Light Fuse And Get Away - Dream Theater - When Dream And Day Unite is awesome. I dabble in the vast majority of the labyrinth of metal subgenres but you know what it is? Sometimes the genre works best when played like it was meant to be. Ever so slightly surpassing Loyal to None in terms of quality if not content, Right in the Guts is pure magic.
He sounds powerful, confident and the actual vocal lines are quality, even rivaling Mr Frank as the star of the show. That aside, Right in the Guts is sheer bliss, and any self respecting Metal fan should pick it up without hesitation. Performances are quality across the board, the songs are well written with enough hooks to keep you coming back, but above all this just full on kills.
Highly recommended! He has a good voice, though, with a solid husky mid-range and a cool, professional tone, and only suffers from not being Parcharidis. Frank really has a knack for getting the best out of these singers. On Right in the Guts you get a host of big, stomping riffs and anthemic sing-along choruses the way only the Germans can do it. The production is loud and clear and heavy as an anvil.
