Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Riot re-emerged after spending a while off the radar to put out this confident reunion album, ending their hiatus with a bang. Playing in a style which is mostly rooted in traditional heavy metal but works in aspects of the characteristically American style of power metal which was beginning to emerge at the time in response to the likes of Blind Guardian, it's a deliciously violent cross-section of Judas Priest-influenced mayhem which should satisfy fans of Metal Church and other American bands who proved that the US wasn't just about hair and glam metal back in the 1980s. Also the cover is one of the first of theirs not to feature that silly floofy dog thingy, which has got to be a plus.
