Marauder – “Elegy Of Blood”

Marauder – “Elegy Of Blood” (Pitch Black Records)

Marauder are Greek heavy metal legends who have been around for over 20 years. In fact, when they first started, Pitch Black Records manager Phivos was sending off for their demo, so he must be really savoring that two decades on they’re now signed to him! Despite their aggressive name, Marauder play a classy brand of power / melodic heavy metal but with enough guts to be worthy descendants of Alexander: vocalist Alexandros Kostarakos can certainly hit the highs while ably shifting into a melodic stance as does the rest of the band on songs like ‘Roman Empire’, ‘Hiroshima’ and ‘Black Gold’ which contain a mixture of heaviness and melody, essentially the components of classic HM. Truth be told Maraude’s music is more likely to appeal to the true metal genre, given its classic style with scarcely any sign of modernity, and is as bold and uncompromising as the Spartans who held Thermopylae!
