Blitzkrieg - Theatre of the Damned
Blitzkrieg….a band already existing for 27 years which is a feat all by itself! In all those years that they’re around, I only have heard the song ‘Blitzkrieg’ but then the cover-version of Metallica. So, I was curious how the real deal sounded. Do they meet the expectations I had beforehand or do they fail miserably? 

Blitzkrieg still plays a style very reminiscent of the old New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. A style of metal I am not really accustomed with. I grew up with the thrash metal bands of the late eighties and begin nineties, so the heyday of NWOBHM was a bit before my time. Am I sorry that I’ve missed this era of music? 

Well if Blitzkrieg is an example of the music of that era, than I have to say “no”. What they deliver on this album is really weak! The album starts of quite nice with ‘Theatre Of The Damned’. Nice spoken intro and quite a catchy song. Unfortunately this is one of the few decent songs on this album.
 
When I reached the third song on the album I asked myself if Blitzkrieg was joking around. ‘Devil’s Spawn´ is a song I won’t forget very soon. The song has such lousy lyrics, I couldn’t decide to cry or to laugh. Besides the lyrics, the song is accompanied with easy-to-forget riffs and a voice which doesn’t possess any power or own style.
 
All other songs consist out of the same ingredients. I have heard these kind of albums too often and I have heard it done better. I expect more of a band that already exists for 27 years! I only recommend this for people who want to own everything of this band or people who are in dire need of a new bear coaster. For all other people I highly advise to leave this album in the discount-shelves of your local CD-store.
