REVIEW : Soldiers Of Solace --- We Are Immortal ( 2018, Rock’N’Growl Records)

Soldiers Of Solace is a new U.S. modern melodic metal band that with their "We Are Immortal" album comes to make some noise. Their music is simple, hard-hitting, aggressive, powerful and modern. The most impressive things of Soldiers Of Solace's music are the riffs and the guitar work in general.

The guitars are heavy with a big and fat sound and include sharp, short and intense solos that makes you wanna headbanging. Their influences are various and in some parts Soldiers Of Solace reminded me of Metallica, Alter Bridge and Shinedown.

For example, the song "Cold As Stone" is pure gold; modern heavy rock with a dark and 'moodier' vibe in it grabs you at once and makes you wanna push the repeat button again and again. "Naked Truth" sounds like it jumped out from any of Metallica's hard rock-era (LOAD and Reload) and "Circus Clown" is yet another killer modern heavy rock track. I like the big groove along with the more melancholic vibe here and it's among my personal favorites out of the new album. "Washed In Flames" is solid while in "Dear John" it's time for some headbanging again; the band delivers  another powerful and aggressive metal dynamite.

All in all, this is a damn fine album all the way! It's powerful, aggressive, melodic, modern and, for damn sure, it will gain your attention!

Rating : 8/10
