Sinbad

   
       
       
       
     
             
Coronary are a heavy metal band from Finland formed in 2017, releasing a three song demo in 2018, and their debut album 'Sinbad', in 2021.    
             
Finnish newcomers Coronary, bring the sound of eighties metal to the present day. Their debut album is a heavy hitting and infectious forty five minute journey. A first look at the albums title 'Sinbad', brings to mind Sinbad The Sailor - the fictional Baghdad mariner from the 8th and 9th centuries A.D. who had seven adventurous voyages. But at second look, it is also an amalgamation of the words 'sin' and 'bad', both of which say the band, "are perfectly suitable life goals". Either way you look at it, the ten songs on offer, portray all facets of the heavy metal genre. Getting the album underway is the thundering title song 'Sinbad'. Heavy hitting yet melodic, 'Sinbad' (the song) will immediately get heads nodding and feet tapping. Picking up the pace, 'Firewings' is a fast and furious gallop of traditional heavy metal, replete with the iconic guitar sound of the NWOBHM evolution. The chant style chorus is surely gonna be an in concert crowd favourite sing a long. The anthemic style of metal takes front and centre with the mid tempo and very hard hitting 'The Hammer'. Think Manowar, Sabaton, and Powerwolf - and you're not too far from the sound of 'The Hammer'.    
             
The eighties style of heavy metal comes shining through with the thumping 'Bullet Train'. The driving rhythm brings back memories of Raven, Saxon, and the mighty Iron Maiden. Add a catchy sing a long chorus, and Coronary are gonna go down a storm live, with the crowd a mass of singing and head banging maniacs. With a title that would signal a ballad on many rock albums, 'I Can Feel This Love' is on a metal album, where ballads should not be. And thankfully, 'I Can Feel This Love' is not a ballad. Yes it's mellower than anything heard so far, bordering on the hard rock genre with its highly melodic feel, but it ain't no ballad. So keep your lighters firmly in your pockets! And there's the iconic buzzing guitar sound of the NWOBHM again, as 'Reflector' chugs into life and gallops forth. The driving rhythm heard earlier (on 'Bullet Train') is in fine fettle, and is gonna infect listeners wherever it is played. Coronary are gonna amass a following in a very short period of time - their music is that infectious.    
             
'Burnout' opens with a flavour of British legends Judas Priest, switching gear to a style more like American metallers Twisted Sister. Coronary are heavily influenced by the great eighties evolution of heavy metal, and are not afraid to let it show. Any fan of the eighties, the NWOBHM, and traditional heavy metal need to get their hands on a copy of this album - you won't be disappointed. Plodding heavy metal comes alive with the mid tempo 'Fight St. 666'. With it's anthemic nature and chant style chorus, 'Fight St. 666' is surely gonna become another in concert crowd favourite. A little darker than what has gone before, 'Mestengo' is the heaviest hard rock song on the album, appealing to fans of both rock and metal. And in what seems like no time at all, we arrive at the final song! Nine songs and forty minutes have breezed past - every one a cracker. 'Wonders Of The World' ends the album in cinematic fashion. It's big, bold, and booming. Blending the anthemic style of Manowar with the doom heavy riffing of Black Sabbath, Coronary close their debut album with what can only be described as a showstopper.    
             
Overall, a great debut from Coronary, full of infectious and catchy heavy metal that's gonna be lapped up by fans everywhere.
