Of all the old Heavy Metal bands from United Kingdom, Blitzkrieg is probably the one who is the less famous. That's weird because the band was formed in 1980 and its seven albums were all really good. In fact, I think that their numerous splits and reformations were the big problem of Blitzkrieg but now that it seems that the line-up is ok, maybe that the band will finally find the success that it deserves and "Theatre Of The Damned" their new album will probably help a lot.
Blitzkrieg plays a strong and aggressive Heavy Metal. Don't expect anything "Power" here, with Blitzkrieg you're in front of a band which plays a classy NWOBHM, but with some aggressive rhythms and guitars riffs. It's dark, loud and heavy and if you're bored by the numerous "sweety" albums that we are able to find in our stores nowadays, I think that you should have a look on "Theatre Of The Damned", I'm quite sure that you'll understand why I'm saying that the band deserves to be known. All in all, if you like bands like Iced Earth and believe that it can be mixed with Saxon then you'll love Blitzkrieg.
"Theatre Of The Damned" is composed of cool catchy songs and all those songs are perfect to headbang. However I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed by the production of the album. The sound is a bit weak and too low in general and sometime you'll have the feeling that you're listening to an album which was recorded during the 80's. It's not really problematic but as you can understand it's a bit sad for the band because for sure they deserve some better means of production and with a perfect sound, "Theatre Of The Damned" could become a real classic…
Except this little problem with the production, "Theatre Of The Damned" is a great album of Heavy Metal. If you like "angry" Heavy, please have a look on this classy release. Blitzkrieg is composed of some talented musicians and a great singer Mr Brian Ross and I still don't understand why they didn't find any more success. It must change now and "Theatre Of The Damned" must be your revelation!
