KILLJOY
KILLJOY
Enemigo
(Shark Records)
49:07min

The guitarist of this Polish band presents himself under the alias "Metal", and that is exactly what you can find on this output. Just Metal, in its purest form. No specific genre here, although influences from '80s Thrash / Speed Metal (METALLICA) and the NWOBHM (IRON MAIDEN) can be spotted. The vocalist is doing a great job, sometimes he sounds like a more versatile version of James Hetfield and most songs benefit from his expressive voice. But this may not lead to the conclusion the music itself is weak, which it is not. But, like in many other traditional Metal outfits, the part of the singer / shouter is very important. Just remember JUDAS PRIEST without Rob Halford or IRON MAIDEN exclusive of Bruce Dickinson. Personally I like "Enemigo" because of its freshness, for me it seems the musicians are just playing the stuff they like without thinking about any stupid restrictions concerning a specific genre. For me a clear advantage of this release, but due to the massive amount of releases nowadays and the trend to pigeonhole all and everything, I fear this first full-length by KILLJOY will vanish into thin air. Because it is not explicit Thrash nor explicit traditional Heavy Metal. But hopefully there are some listeners out there who are willing to gave KILLJOY a chance, it is definitely good quality Metal. www.killjoy.metal.pl.
