I'm somewhat active on the Metal Archives forums (more as a reader than as a contributor), and I'd seen people throwing around the name Herman Frank for a while. Specifically, about his solo album "Loyal to None". I saw it was straight-up heavy metal, which is good, but it's not my power fix, so I put off checking it out. This morning I threw the album on and got blasted out of my seat!
This cd is incredible! I haven't heard such delightfully heavy and dynamic traditionally-styled metal like this in...maybe almost ever! The vocals are POWERFUL and commanding, the guitars are fantastic, and the hooks just keep coming. I'd like to share with you the opening track of "Loyal to None", and hope it floors you like it did me. Enjoy!
