Album Reviews
Band: Axel Rudi Pell

Title: Sign Of The Times

Label: SPV Records

Absolute straight forward traditional heavy metal is the order of the day on Axel Rudi Pell's latest conquest.

 The offerings on 'Sign of the Times' are nothing short of untarnished metal magnificence . From the opening power chords I instinctively knew I that I would be hitting the repeat button on this gem.  

Compositionally, the songs are powerfully packed with anthemic chorus lines, killer hooks and ear splitting solos.  It also sounds fanatic on a production level.  Across the board 'Sign of the Times' sounds very familiar but made interesting through excellent craftsmanship. 

Retro metal heads will dig this release!!
