Cry For The Steel E.P.

     
         
         
         
     
             
Risingfall are a heavy metal band from Japan forming in 2014, releasing the three song demo 'Prologue' in 2017. The live album 'Tokyo Metal Fire (Live In Tokyo)' emerged later the same year, with the three song E.P. 'Cry For The Steel', a 2018 release.    
             
If you're looking for a quick blast of old school heavy metal - look no further than Japan's Risingfall. Their three song E.P. 'Cry For The Steel', is a scorching blend of eighties style traditional metal, fused with thrash and power metal traits. Opener, and title song 'Cry For The Steel' mixes speed metal with the classic sound of traditional heavy metal to great effect. The pace is phenomenal and breath taking, a glorious romp of metal to head bang hard to.    
             
AC/DC fans will recognise the opening riff to second song 'Promised Land' immediately - and if you don't, you're no AC/DC fan... After twenty five seconds or so, 'Promised Land' assumes its own identity, to become a powerhouse of a metal anthem. Much heavier and packing a hefty punch, 'Promised Land' balances on a melodic edge, especially across the chorus break.    
             
Third and final song on offer 'Tyrant's Void' is the fastest on offer, running through the speed metal genre at err, speed! 'Tyrant's Void' is traditional heavy metal sounding too, the iconic "foot on the monitor" vibe in great effect.    
             
Overall, a blistering three song assault of pounding heavy metal. Risingfall deliver a breathless blast of head bangingly addictive anthems.
