Germany has seen its fair share of longevity among many of its hard rock brethren. Accept, Axxis, Domain, Sinner, and U.D.O are all still going strong, while on the debit side The Scorpions have since retired. Add Victory to the list of 21st Century survivors, with another album added to their extension discography. However, it appears that The Scorps might have company in the retirement village, seemingly Victory are bidding adieu to public life as well, 'Don't Talk Science' touted as being their last recording. I guess it all makes sense, considering Herman Frank now has a burgeoning solo career, he's also part of the kick-ass revival of Accept. Also, Victory have been struggling to find a major label since departing SPV/Steamhammer, and now having to resort to smaller labels on this CD, plus their 2006 'Fuel To The Fire' release. However, in the rock music industry, bygones and farewells are never final. Just ask Gene $immons and KISS! If this is their swansong, then they've gone out with a helluva bang. Released back in May 2011 though recorded during 2009, this is a full CD of thirteen tracks.

The Songs
Victory's major weapon is their 'heavy as horses' chugging guitarwork, and huge shout-out choruses. Singer Jioti Parcharidis spits out vocals roughened by time and substance, and is a vital part of the mix. Listening to some of these tracks, you would wonder why this lot are jacking it in. Lead off track 'Restless' is pretty darned good, a hot start from the V-team! Blistering hard rock in the shape of 'Rockstar' and 'Download Down' belies a band on the way out. Put it this way, many new bands would kill to have songs as good as these. 'Blinded By Darkness' would rank as one of the heaviest songs Victory have ever recorded, so too the crunching 'No Return' which could be Pretty Maids on any other day. If you like it hard, fast and melodic, then it doesn't come better than 'Go To Hell', the double-hammer drumwork from new drummer Achim Keller making a solid impression. The final track is the most interesting one on the CD. A cover of The Pointer Sisters 80's pop hit 'I'm So Excited' being given a Teutonic blast of metal. Victory have followed in the vein of fellow Germans At Vance by putting a cover song on their album. Pity it's their last..

In Summary
Being a fan of this band since their classic 80's days, it would be remiss of me to give them a big thank you for all the years of great music. Thanks to Tommy, Fargo and Herman (the mainstays of the band) for the memories. A great album, well worthy of adding to your 2011 collection.
