HARDWARES

DEATH DEALER

War Master

(Steel Cartel Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 8.5

Ex-MANOWAR guitarist Ross "The Boss" Friedman has teamed up with Halford-like screamer Sean Peck (CAGE), guitarist Stu Marshall (EMPIRES OF EDEN), bassist Mike Davis (HALFORD, LIZZY BORDEN) and drummer Kenny Earl “Rhino” Edwards (ex-Manowar) to create a new, big league supergroup, DEATH DEALER. The thing that sets Death Dealer apart from other US power metal bands is the singing, songwriting and overall experience and professionalism of the musicians involved. The drums are thick, the bass is solid, the guitars cut through like lightning and Peck’s piercing wails resonate magnificently. Peck isn’t called “the man of a thousand voices” for nothing, as he hits the highs, the lows, and everything in between with power and precision. His range is impeccable. Australian shredder Marshall is no slouch either, as he seamlessly trades off solos with Friedman. Ironically, Friedman and Rhino have never played together as the guitarist left the loin-clothed ones a few years before Rhino joined the band. Peck’s uncanny KING DIAMOND-like falsettos and lower growls come to the surface on ‘Curse of the Heretic.’ It captures an evil and majestic mood with haunting melodies and some blistering trade-off guitar solos. CD opener ‘Death Dealer’ is a rousing rocker in true ‘Painkiller’ fashion. It’s a bombardment of pummeling double kick drums, scorching riffs, menacing vocals and fiery guitar solos. The chant-able chorus of ‘War Master’ gets comfortably stuck in your head while the SCORPS-esque whistling pattern on ‘Children Of Flames’ proves to be catchy and hummable. Death Dealer has a really great thing going here and I just hope these guys can manage to stick together. Well done.
