Ambush: Desecrator

Hailing from Sweden are Classic Metaller's, Ambush, with their 2nd album Desecrator. With an old school feel and delivery, Ambush have combined the sound of classic Accept and Painkiller era Judas Priest with power and fury coupled with soaring vocals that you might expect.

Desecrator features 9 tracks that create a well rounded Metal album. Songs like the AC/DC fueled "Night of the Defilers", the "Fast As A Shark" meets "Painkiller" vibe of the pounding "The Chain Reaction" or the anthem like "Southstreet Brotherhood" are all can't miss Metal gems. Vocals by Oskar Jacobsson are also a focal point with Ambush, with Jacobsson channeling his inner Ralf Scheepers of Primal Fear and delivering the goods in all of his soaring ranged glory. "The Seventh Seal" is the adventurous and longest song on the album complete with several mood changes and reminded me a little bit of modern era Iron Maiden.

Ambush have gone down a different Metal path than most of their other Swedish counterparts choosing the Classic Metal path. On Desecrator they were able to wear their influences on their sleeves and do this Metal form some solid justice. Musical performances are solid all around and production values are also strong. Heavy, powerful and melodic are just three words to sum up what Ambush are doing with their brand of Metal. Good stuff indeed.
