Warlord - ...And the Cannons of Destruction Have Begun (1984)

Warlord ...a bandname which automatically leads to the assumption that this band will play some kind of metal. Since we are in the year of 1984 it is quite imaginable that they neither play black metal nor metalcore, what's left is the good old american way of heavy metal - the epic way.
If you are into guttural blastbeatz this will scare the fuck out of you: A frequent usage of keys support the fairly efficient riffs (sometimes classical heavy, sometimes even speed metalish) and the well done vocals (The combinations will remind you of Cloven Hoof's dominator which is outstanding as well but still feels less epic than this effort). Yeah talking about good catchy NWoBHM we can come to the point that this album is pretty catchy, you will get into this one in a fast way if you are open towards 80s metal in general.
