Black(or New Wave Of American Heavy Metal)
The wave can become the most successful architect in nature, as long as it sculpts the right rock.
How it sounds
Like “American” Metal or like English riffs of NWOBHM with crap vocals.
It is in fact the incorporation of new approaches to metal music in pure English Metal.
Why listen to it
Because it is the definition of modern Metal, without the hooks of the classic.
And because it includes a wide range of sounds, including some of the top names in music.
