Lady Beast: Metal Immortal EP

Traditional Heavy Metal
4.0/5.0

Once more we welcome back Pittsburgh traditional metallers, the female-fronted Lady Beast, delivering a simple four song EP, Metal Immortal. There's some promise of a third long player to be delivered late 2017. Also, the band arrives with a new lead guitar player in Andy Ramage, the older brother of drummer Adam Ramage.

Not meaning to be lazy, but what I said in the past about Lady Beast is worth repeating verbatim. "Explaining Lady Beast's sound is pretty simple. This is old school melodic, heavy, and speed metal, an American version of the NWoBHM sound, only with a female lead vocalist. Call it a time warp if you will, but Lady Beast basically nails the genre. Clean vocals, often soaring, never harsh or hardcore. Twin guitar harmony, with an abundance of stinging guitar solos in every song. A solid rhythm section keeping a steady or, when necessary, a speedy pace. The song arrangements effortlessly incorporate melody and groove, while still remaining heavy and often swift at times. Lady Beast isn't reinventing the classic metal wheel ..."

As for for the four songs, they definitely lean more to the speed metal side of classic metal. There may be some slight moderation within Lady Of The Battle, but the gallop is still there. With the song Not This Time, the sharp guitar start of a screaming lead and heavy riffs tricks you up with a slower start, only to turn into a speed monster worthy of vintage Motorhead. The EP may be brief, but if you're a fan of Lady Beast and you dig old school, keep it true, heavy metal, you'll want to pick up Metal Immortal. Recommended.
