OK, so I’ve gotten a bit lazy writing reviews lately and was wondering how to motivate myself to get going again. Fortunately a review request came across my desk at an opportune moment. The promo video I was sent piqued my interest and I requested the full promo kit. As I listened I thought “Man, this band is doing classic metal right!” I opened the promo kit and read their summary and had a good laugh.

 

See, Infrared was actually formed in the 80’s, and the songs on the album were written back then. Life got in the way of cutting the first album and the band drifted in different directions. After 27 years they got back together and recorded their first album. Now, this does not at all make the songs dated, as many were tweaked for the recording.

 

What the listener get is a debut release from a classic metal band that has had decades to hone their craft. At times reminiscent of old school Metallica, sometimes Megadeth, sometimes something else entirely. In short, if you dig 80’s metal you should really give this album a listen. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. I’m already looking forward to the next.
