"Road of Bones" (Cruz Del Sur; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


Hailing from Austin, TX, the classic metal revivalist outfit Ignitor unleash their traditional metal wares on "Road of Bones," an 11-track affair that is metal down to the core. 

Shredding guitars, fantasy-style lyrics exalting metal and all of its excesses and lots of leather and spikes suit this female-fronted quintet best on tracks like "God of Vengeance" and "Phoenix."

There's no question that if you like Helloween, Iron Maiden, and Primal Fear that there's something on this disc that you'll find to your liking, especially if the mid-tempo Priest-esque epic vibe of "Broken Glass" is up your alley.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
