John (bass/vocals) and Mark Gallagher started Raven some 40 years ago and have never really looked back. The ten songs on ‘Metal City’ (with a cartoon inspired cover of the three musicians) leave no room for doubts or any prisoners. Raven just blasts through the songs throwing all their known ingredients out there like there is no tomorrow. ,,The Power’’, ,,Cybertron’’, ,,Motorheadin’’, ,,Break’’ and ,,Human Race’’ (with ultrafast drums) bring back memories of the good old days. On ,,When Worlds Collide’’ brings down the tempo a notch and is actually quite long and kind of semi-epic as well.Recommended for fans of Anvil, Judas Priest, Riot V, Exciter, Tank or Diamon Head.
