Liquid Steel: Midnight Chaser
Liquid Steel Midnight Chaser CD Album Review

Liquid Steel: Midnight Chaser

Heavy Metal (Classic)
4.0/5.0

Now for round two. Austria's Liquid Steel returns with their sophomore album, Midnight Chaser. The band basically wears their influences on their sleeves, and denim jackets. Liquid Steel is unapologetically flying the flag of Eighties heavy metal, especially that of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

And, essentially, they get it right. Twin guitar harmony, blistering lead guitar solos, a charging rhythm section, and clean pitched vocals are the nuts and bolts of the Liquid Steel classic heavy metal sound. The only additional element is a good dose of speed metal. Songs like Fright Night, Kubla Khan, Starrider, and Air Aces move at a brisk pace. Alternatively Hiroshima, while fast paced in the first third of the song, drops into an acoustic breakdown in the middle before leading to a guitar solo. Midnight Chaser tries to fake you out with it's light acoustic intro, before the vocalist goes full screamo and the song charges on. Then there's the ballad, Autumn Leaves. The song turns on acoustic guitar and voice at the start, only to rise around the midpoint with sharp guitar lines and more swift speed metal. Overall, with Midnight Chaser Liquid Steel delivers entertaining and engaging "keep it true" classic heavy metal. Easily recommended.
