1 stars The final Faithful Breath album before they changed their name to Risk and music style to speed metal. The Risk albums is far better than the metal albums they released under the Faithful Breath name, btw.

But we return to this album named Skol. Is it named after this famous beer brand ? A cheap beer with dubious contents. Is it sold here in the UK anylonger ? I do not know. I never buy beer any longer due to a more healthy lifestyle.

To the music........ Faithful Breath has slightly changed style again from their previous Accept copycat album. Accept was a much more aggressive German heavy metal band than Faithful Breath has morphed into on this album. The music on Skol is much more traditional German metal, although still with a lot of very obvious Accept connotations. Accept-Light, I would brand this album.

The lyrics is as usual laughable bad. Nothing has changed there. Unfortunate they are so much in the front of the mix that it is impossible not to notice every single word. Which frankly is painful for the listener. Or if you like, a hilarious experience. The music is so standard heavy metal and so low on quality that this album becomes an involuntary hilarious album. The band has copied other bands in everything and there is hardly any fibre of origiality on this album. No wonder that I as an avid metal fan at that time did not know about this band at all. They were simply never good enough to get noticed.

In short; this is another abysmal bad album from a band which tried their best, but fell short by many country miles. Thankfully, the story has a happy ending with the success Risk got.

Avoid unless you have a weird sense of humour.
