Sacred Guardian: Sacred Guardian

Metal band Sacred Guardian are a four piece act from Puerto Rico who have chosen to play classic metal inspired by famous metal acts like Black Sabbath and Dio, though this band isn't attempting to re-invent the genre. Their self titled debut is a solid slab of metal tunes introducing fans of metal to Sacred Guardian's music and will hopefully allow this band to get their foot in the door and follow this one up with many more.

Opening with a brief acoustic number Sacred Guardian follow with the catchy metallic riffs of the mostly mid paced "The Last Rites", next the title track picks up the tempo. "Ancient Pophecy" features some screaming vocals and impressive music thanks greatly to more of that infectious guitar work, actually it's the guitar playing that's the standout on this new recording and given plenty of space to impress which their axe man Jose A Blondet does multiple times. Also, their bass player Rally Vega is no slouch either as they combine to power up Sacred Guardian's music, his additions add plenty like that on "Truth Within The Lies".

Sacred Guardian show a lot of promise with their self titled debut which is a consistent recording with no real low points. As this kind of metal has been done before by so many others, it can't be easy coming up with new ideas as they try to stand out but Sacred Guardian have put in a good first effort that classic metal fans will enjoy .
