Riot - Thundersteel (1988) Retail CD
Wow, an absolutely brilliant comeback album for Riot, as the new lineup tear through nine crunching power metal classics with abandon. Vocalist Tony Moore has a terrific range and guitarists Mark Reale and Don Van Stavern are just magnificent, the rhythm section is led by powerhouse drummer Bobby Jarzombek, who later in his career was snapped up for Halford, which is an indication of his ability.
Every cut is a gem, but highlights for me are the blazing title track, which is a high octane rollercoaster full of thundering drumming and intricate guitar work. Just as good is Sign of the Crimsonmore… Storm, a rhythm driven delight, that displays the talents of Tony Moore as he rips through this vocally challenging number. Next up is the melodic gem Flight of the Warrior, a beautifully performed song, which trades light and heavy sections, that make for an astonishingly powerful track. Johnny's Back is a rhythmic plodder of the highest order, full of glorious vocals and explosive drumming. Bloodstreets kicks off with a oriental sounding intro but builds into a strong plodder brimming with emotionally sung lyrics. The album closes with an epic, Buried Alive, a masterfully written and performed doom laden gem, that is enhance by a fabulous tolling bell and eerie dialogue.
This album is a hidden classic and anyone who likes Melodic Power Metal should snap up a copy of this jewel.
