Sky of Rage: Sky of Rage

Sky Of Rage is an interesting band name which inspires notions of the sky erupting with crushing riffs, a pummelling barrage of drums and intense vocals. Not this band though, whilst they aren't super heavy Sky Of Rage present more of a balance of stirring heavy rock/metal and speed, than an all out destructive metal blast fest that the name Sky Of Rage may suggest.

This new group was formed by guitarist Joachim Nordllund of the Swedish band Astral Doors along with drummer Tomas Friberg, and to complete the band vocalist Staffan Carlsson, guitarist Janne Cederlund and bass player Mika Itaranta were recruited giving this band quite a capable line-up of musicians.

Sky Of Rage get going with the swift guitar driven "Stardust" then cut it back for the heavy rock style of "Countdown". Title track "Sky Of Rage" is an impressive and memorable one with a gripping heavy guitar groove and a chorus that is hard to resist. Many different topics are covered by Sky Of Rage such as "Soldiers In A Line" which tells of the sacrifices soldiers make and "If There Was A God" deals with drug addiction. Yngwie Malmsteen released a great tune many years ago called "Liar" and Sky Of Rage have one here, while the only similarity is in name, and this song also rocks.

Impressive vocals and guitar work are utilised to great effect on Sky Of Rage, and as far as recent releases go this is one to take note of, fully deserving to be recommended.
