Marauder: Bullethead
Marauder Bullethead CD Album Review

Marauder: Bullethead

Traditional Heavy Metal
4.5/5.0

If anything Greek metal band Marauder is consistent. They record and release a new album every four years with Bullethead their latest and sixth album, once more on the Pitch Black Records label. But this album comes with a change. Marauder returns with new vocalist Nikos (Mygas) Antonogiannakis.

What hasn't changed in the least is Marauder's commitment to playing classic "keep it true" heavy metal. Of all the elements that make up this classic genre, the band works several of these very well. One is twin guitar harmony. Marauder delivers brisk melodic riffs. Another element, and related to the first, is an abundance of fiery guitar solos, something that some say defines traditional heavy metal. If you like slick guitar work, you'll like this album. A third and prominent characteristic to the Marauder sound is the infectious rock groove of the rhythm section. It's the engine that keeps the band moving, even sprinting along at times. You really can't skimp on this necessary element. True metal will have both your head banging and toe tapping. When these elements work together you get groove and guitars of Spread Your Wings, Dark Legion, and Predators, catch it at the start of that last song. Pretty epic. As for the vocals, Antonogiannakis is a clean metal singer, with a bit of a rasp to his voice, but always staying with in range. In turn, the rest of the band backs him often with gang vocals. Bottom line: for classic heavy metal in the true old school tradition, Marauder's Bullethead delivers the goods. They are definitely the real deal. Easily recommended.
