Herald
Heavy Metal Wakes the Beast

HERALD: “Heavy Metal Wakes the beast”. Autoproduction. GET IN TOUCH WITH THIS BAND OR DIE! PURE PLEASURE FOR HEAVY METAL MANIACS!

AAAAARRRRRRR GGGGGHHHHHHH! Yeah, again, but what do you want, I can’t tell anything else than “ARGH!!” and bang my fucking skull while I listen to HERALD’s Heavy metal! Read the interview somewhere in these pages to learn more about the guys! I had the chance to go twice in Estonia, this little nordic country so sadly unknown by common people! And I had the chance to meet these really great metalheads again who kicked my ass at the HARD ROCK LAAGER festival this summer. If I ask you about the estonian metal scene, are you able to name at least 5 bands from this country? No, for sure, but in the future I wish you could answer to this question, because there’s definitely a metal scene in this country which deserves to be recognised out of its border, and HERALKD is according to me the best estonian metal band in activity. If you are into Real heavy Metal, with bollocks, attitude, sweat and bullets, then you will love HERALD. As simple as it is, every single people to whom I played HERALD in France loved it! Imagine an Heavy metal band with a strong personality, and an incredible singer as good as Messiah Marcollin himself (yep, I dare to say that!). The music is very well composed, with efficient riffs, interesting and intelligent arrangements, and each song has an identity and your ears begin to love these 6 tracks pretty quickly, believe me! The guitarists take their influences from JUDAS PRIEST, SLAYER, RUNNING WILD and all that’s good heavy metal from the eighties, still the sound isn’t cheap. The production is enormous, modern, but not too much, and serves the music in a really efficient way. The album finishes with the title track called “Heavy Metal wakes the beast”, and this is a real hymn for each heavy metal maniac on earth! Argh! The refrain is excellent: “Heavy metal, wakes the beast in me!!!!!” The other titles are cool as well, yeah, they all kick ass. What is cool with this band is that it is like for METALUCIFER, because I think both fans of traditional Heavy metal and extreme metal can enjoy HERALD. This band has still not found a label to distribute in a wider scale this real masterpiece of Heavy Metal, so I hope that some people who read this zine could help HERALD to get its more than deserved recognition! And yeah, there are not only South America, Asia or eastern Europe that produce some excellent underground bands, now you know that baltic countries and especially Estonia can play on the international scene without shame!
