Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

I'll admit it. I'm a huge fan of this band, since I laid my hands on their earlier albums a few years ago. From Sweden, these guys are iron-ore friendly, with a singer that has an Ozzy Osbourne influence, but overall, Hellfueled are classy HM and I'm stoked to finally hear their latest 'Emission Of Sin'. This album - released toward the end of 2009 has flown under the radar of most melodic rockers, not surprising as this lot have probably been talked about over at pure HM sites. They still belong to the same indie record label as before (Black Lodge), making it hard to find quality distribution, but that would be the same for most decent HM bands nowadays, as the scene is awash with good bands, reminding me of the early 80's Eurometal movement, where there were hundreds of bands, the likes of which you now see on Blogspot sites as supposedly rare (as opposed to 'supposedly good') fileshares. So what can we expect with 'Emission Of Sins'? Well, there's a bit of the old (a la The Sabbs, Pantera, KISS, Ozzy Osbourne), plus some of the new (Black Label Society), even Pagans Mind in places.

The Songs
Firing off the first round is 'Where Angels Die', the riffs are huge and full, and sets the perfect intro for what is to come. 'Am I Blind' asks the hard question, but thankfully you don't your eyes to navigate through this metal minefield. Your eyes will do just fine. 'I'm The Crucifix' drives the nail deep into the heart of doom metal category, sort of like a heavied up version of early Sabbath, it's the only track that slows up the tempo. 'A Remission Of My Sins' returns to a faster tempo, and though the verses are heavy as hell, the choruses are quite modern and (dare I say it) commercial. There's no relenting on Jocke Lundgren's behalf, massive walls of guitar dominate 'Save Me', though I don't think he's in the habit of saving anyone to be honest! The cool riffing on 'Lost Forever' makes way again for another great chorus, and it's this trait which sets excellent metal bands apart from the rest, Hellfueled are no exception. The melodic overtones of 'In Anger' makes this track a real sweetener by comparison, not unlike Firewind or Jorn. For me it's the pick of the album. 'Stone By Stone' is as intense and effective as the title would have you believe, and the Hellfueled pick it apart literally. The album ends with the instrumental 'Moving On', a mid-paced track with a ton of dense atmospherics and loads of soloing from Ludngren.

In Summary
'Emission Of Sins' sets the seal on another tremendous CD from Hellfueled. Admittedly you'll need to be in the right mood to chug this down. I recommend playing this after you've had your meeting with the Bank Manager or your boss! This album will appeal to those of you looking forward to both the new Ozzy Osbourne album (with Gus G in tow) plus the new Black Label Society disc, which should be with us in a few months. In the meantime, lock your jaws onto this quality outfit, and prepare for solid dose of headbanging!
