Proving Our Mettle

     
         
         
         
             
             
Metal are a heavy metal band from Australia.    
             
With a band name Metal you would expect a heavy metal band, and that is exactly what you get. The anthemic, traditional heavy metal sound of opening song 'Heavy Metal' is followed by the pace of 'Victory', the early 80's sounding 'Beneath The Banner Of The Iron Duke' and 'Battlefields Ablaze'.    
             
'The Buccaneer's Revenge' is riff heavy, 'The Smelting Of Steel' is a three minute romp of heavy metal and 'The Gry Lion' recreates the classic NWOBHM sound.    
             
'Fighting For Metal' is a song title you would expect from (the masters of epic heavy metal anthems) Manowar. In 'Fighting For Metal', Metal have created a classic anthemic song that all fans of heavy metal will understand and relate to. 'The Kiss Of Steel' and the title song 'Proving Our Mettle' continues the foot stomping heavy metal assault.    
             
Final song 'Trafalgar' is an epic six minutes plus heavy metal song, similar in style to some of the Iron Maiden six minutes plus epics. A great finish to a great album.    
             
Overall, an album influenced by the traditional heavy metal sound of the NWOBHM, it's full of great and epic songs destined to become metal anthems.
