The Riders Of Ardenland

     
         
         
         
             
             
Hundred are a heavy metal band from the UK formed in 2006 who released their demo E.P. in 2011.    
             
'The Riders Of Ardenland' demo E.P. is jam packed with thunderous old school sounding heavy metal. Opening song 'March Of The Grand Host' is a mid tempo chug of extremely heavy, heavy metal with a raspy, throaty vocal performance. Majestic and epic, it rumbles on and on relentlessly, pounding the senses into submission. Upping the tempo is 'Charge Into Glory' blazing a trail of rampant rhythms and galloping guitars as it races on at full tilt.    
             
'The Battle Of Kings' keeps the pace going, thundering on at break neck speed, sounding like Slayer meets Iron Maiden. It pounds and pummels the listener with screaming guitar solos and will have the mosh pit in a frenzy. The galloping 'Will To Survive' is Manowar-esque as it stomps majestically on and on. Superb musicianship keeps the song chugging away relentlessly with great guitar solos and a screaming vocal performance that Rob Halford (Judas Priest) will be proud of.    
             
Rampant is about the only way to describe 'The Riders Are Coming' as it races on with screaming guitars and vocals. It is a short burst of bombastic energy that will have the mosh pit moshing furiously. Gather round the fire in a Norse forest and i'll tell you a tale is the vibe you get from the introduction to 'Life Continues' and as the song rumbles on, that vibe remains. 'Life Continues' definitely has more than just the one trait of Viking metal about it.    
             
Overall, energetic, up tempo, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Manowar influenced heavy metal.
