Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

During 2011, traditional heavy metal was still an ongoing proposition. Even as we venture into 2012, we are seeing some great new bands with a hankering with metal the way it was back in the 80's. Think Queensryche, Fifth Angel, Crimson Glory, Savatage and Vicious Rumours, and you can see quite clearly that these were bands not to be trifled with back in the day. Now with the likes of Firewolfe, Reverence, White Wizzard and many others, metal as most of us remember it, is still alive and kicking. One band that seems to have flown under the radar are Phoenix AZ based Knight Fury. They shouldn't have, considering their rather awesome and tested line-up. Dave Ellefson, Chris Sanders and Ken Mary need no introduction to metal fans, but it's the vocals of singer William King that attracts the most attention.

The Songs
William King demonstrates his great vocal on 'Nothing Left', a Queensryche laden piece, with comparisons made to Geoff Tate, back when Tate was a force to be reckoned with. 'Attack' is as rabid and full-frontal as the title suggests, double-kick drums from Ken Mary gives this one a merciless assault. 'Forbidden' presents a multi-faceted approach by Knights Fury; melodic mid-tempo passages coupled with intense solo parts and soaring vocals. Traditional 80's metal arrives hard and fast on 'Battle For The Castle'. Again, Queensryche and Crimson Glory styled mayhem is the main course here. 'Awaken' is a tighter affair with outfits such as Fifth Angel and Hittman being the dual catalysts in sound and style. Next up is 'The Message' which has borrowed heavily from the Whitesnake riff-dictionary, though King sounds nothing like Coverdale. 'Endless Night' gallops along in that aforementioned Fifth Angel comparison, whereas 'Out On Your Own' rediscovers that Queensryche sound, a la 'The Warning' era, before Q discovered how to be atmospheric and layered. 'Believe' is perhaps the most commercial offering, and it's also the most laid back. Strange to say this about a metal band, but this one borders on melodic hard rock and will appeal to many of the readers here. 'Time To Rock' has nicked the riff From Rainbow's 'All Night Long', but I'll forgive them for their indiscretion as this rocks 100% harder than that Rainbow track!

In Summary
The initial album was released by the band themselves without any major label backing. It came out in December 2011 while a limited vinyl only version was released in 2012 by Pure Steel Records. I'd like to see this band continue into the future, but hopefully with a label like Metal Blade bringing the Phoenix boys onboard with some big ticket support. Lovers of 80's trad metal should feel right at home with this one. Go discover!
