MAAX (U.S.) “Unholy Rock & Roll” DIGI CD review


By Sergio Fernandez

MAAX Americans remain in continuous evolution, their first album was a work acceptable Thrash / Heavy Metal Black Metal with hints of old school while its follower EP, “Dawnbringer” made it clear that this band was totally serious. Now, with his novel “Unholy Rock N Roll”, want to continue to devastate eardrums with maximum brutality and aggressiveness made music.

From the first issue of the compact, the mission statement is straightforward and concise; Pure Metal dirty and full of expedited ideal for headbanging riffs. Although the essence of the guitar sound are MAAX, other instruments form a perfect combo with its getting completely original sound. On one hand, the bass is audible in a larger than usual while the battery is like a hammer hitting knows when required, without any brilliance. The guitar-riffs, together with themselves, causing the sound to make different changes of pace, but in general, the rate is high and the songs happen almost without respite. Meanwhile, the voice is dirty, hard, rough, all combined to fit like a charm.

If we talk about the issues, we can highlight some as “Fight With Fire”, “Rot And Roll” or “Do What Thou Wilt” guitar whose sound reminds me enormously to about MOTLEY CRUE in its principles.

Great new work from a band whose sound is as the result of the mixture of Thrash / Heavy / Black / Rock N Roll Punk and even some of the dirtiest and ruthless.
