Angry hardcore vocals connect with some fast heavy metal music. This is what between the wars' latest CD, "death and the sea" offers in spades. Tim Shaw's (ENSIGN) ripping vocals lead these New Jersey natives through 15 unstoppable tracks on their full-length debut. The more I listen to this record the more I like it, a lot! Metal air guitar riffs and jumping up and down raging hardcore vocals, what's not to love?
The old blokes from Iron Maiden should hear this record because this is what Iron Maiden should have attained to. But their loss is our gain as, between the wars covers hardcore/metal territory that few bands can only dream of reaching. If you have an appreciation for classic metal, come on you know you do, and you feed off the anger and energy of really good hardcore, then look no further then picking up a copy of "death and the sea." Give it a few spins, played loudly, to let it sink in and then... hardcore/metal bliss.
