4 stars This third outing from Christian US band Torman Maxt have apparently created some debate in various circles.

While not to everybody's taste, their mix of King's X, Rush and Iron Maiden grooves come across as rather good actually. The tunes are short, slightly complex in performance and very much so in structure, with skilled use of layered guitars enhancing the moods in the individual composition, as well as a distinct emphasis on the music underlining the lyrical mood in each song. The most unsettling facet of this release will probably be the lyrics for many; if you're not a Christian they may alienate the listener quite a bit.

If you don't mind religious lyrics it's worth checking this one out though. As the album is available as a free download on the band's website; it will be free to check out whether or not this is a release to your liking.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
