With much anticipation “Atlantis” debut album from the Portuguese heavy-metal band “Attick Demons” gets released under Pure Steel Records records label.
The new, ¾-hour long piece “Atlantis” offers greatly played, classical Heavy/Power Metal with some powerful double-bass parts and a singer, where you even think, that he is the missing son of Bruce Dickinson. Especially „The Flame of Eternal Knowledge“ and „City of Golden Gates“ show all the disciples of Iron Maiden, that current bands can now sound even more authentic to the early days of the metal-legend, as it is done by the originals now. Fitting to this, Ex-Manowar guitarist Ross the Boss and Ex-Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di’Anno are appearing as guest-musicians on the title track.
But not only the vocals of Artur Almeida are so heavy Maiden-oriented, the first class, harmonic twin guitar-work, the also existent gallop-parts and the pumping bass-line remember in a few moments back to them, although influences of bands like Judas Priest and some old school US Metal-bands can be heard too.
This is the Japanese version released through “Rubicon Music” Japanese label. which includes the bonus track “Moonlight Walks” never before released.
