20 years ago the US band MEGATTACK released their debut 'Raw delivery',
which gave them quite some success, although it sadly was never followed
by another album, but now 2005 is the comeback of MEGATTACK.
The band still plays high class 80s US Melodic Power Metal with raw DEE SNIDER type of vocals. Most of the 10 new songs included here are mid-tempo with a very big 80s touch, sort of DIO/ASTRAL DOORS/WARRIOR type of material, yet the band's Bio mentions they are as good as HEEP and DIO, but maybe that's a bit impossible to reach. However, songs like "Save the
nations", "Watching you", "Bad enough", "Earthshaker" and "Where do we
go now" are quite impressive. The CD has a big sound and instrumental it
all sounds perfect, vocally sometimes great, sometimes not, kinda like
STEVE GRIMMETT (or GRIM REAPER) when it's not and DEE SNIDER a lot when
it goes well, but still singer Rick Jackson pulls it off very well most
of the time, so in the end this is a highly recommended CD to fans of
raise your hands in the air and shout it out loud- 80s guitar riff
orientated pure Metal.
Saving the Nations had great reviews and was listened to around the world, especially in Europe. Gough & Hultquist's guitar skills really raise the bar for this album. It has amazing melody and solos that make the song much more interesting to listen to. It has catchy choruses and rifts that will be sure to stay in your head for the rest of the day.
Hi I'm DD, just Megattack's biggest fan from way back in the day. I've loved these guys for a long, long time. I wanted to put together a little tribute to them, as well as some of the other great bands from the 80's. Megattack Rocks!
