Vandium - EP-ic EP

Vandium have come storming out of the West country brandishing their steal like modern Celtic avengers, leading from the front are the twin guitars of Adam Martin and Chris Smith which is poignant as Martin is a God of War who comes with his own trusty Smith to forge the steal.. am I reading to much into this?

Back to reality, we have a metal band playing fast heavy melodic metal slicing the sky with their twin axe attack ably supported by a solid thunder known as the rhythm section. This is a four track EP which has that rare Live feel to each and every track, EP-ic opens with 'Thin Ice' we have to wait for about one and half minutes before the axes started to swing their racing solo's and I was able to breath again, so with a galloping thunder
of matching riffs and crashing cymbal's the band proceed to carve a legend.

We get more of the same treatment with 'The Fallen' the second tune's solid drum riffs providing a bedrock for the three guitars to open the throttle, squeezing breakneck solos all the way and only pausing for Adam to give us the benefit of his vocals before he gets his head down again, with the third track 'Save the day' they show us that the band can stitch it all together at a slower pace as well and provide us with some decent chant along lyrics while we are treated with some pleasant melodic metal before the song ends on a two and half minute blast of axe wielding and head nodding, which leads nicely into the final track 'Broken Man' with a twitchy opener and a change of gear the song is a rally cry, so get of your arse and get bouncing.

There are some short comings but the exuberance and thrust of their metal demands forgiveness and it is nothing that a good studio production and polish couldn't iron out, but as in all things, can they carry on writing and performing at this pace, if they can they could in time reach the heights that they deserve, time will tell.
