STUKA SQUADRON ”Tales Of The Ost”

STUKA SQUADRON
”Tales Of The Ost”
(Metalbox)
I’ve read about Stuka Squadron’s live shows. From that I’ve made up a picture of what they’ll be like musically. Don’t know if that picture is true but I’m about to find out if this is the new Lawnmower Deth of metal. I have no idea why some British bands feel the need to dress up their music in different images (think Rock Bitch, Lawnmower Deth etc.) when the music itself would do the talking alone. Stuka Squadron, despite their image could be the best thing that has happened to UK heavy metal since NWOBHM. They could also be the worst thing since pickled cheese. This wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be. This is heavy metal in the tradition of good old British acts. It makes me think of bands like Tygers Of Pan Tang, Tokyo Blade and the likes. And for that alone I like Stuka Squadron. This turned out to be a positive surprise. Anders Ekdahl
