Here's a thumping new band from the south coast of England (Portsmouth to be exact), who have put the metal back into the soundforge. They are a recent addition to the rising stocks of British metal bands; this their second album. They've been around for a few years, and 'Pillars Of Creation' is the band's second effort; following 2013's 'Killing Floor'. They cut their cloth on different parts of the metal fabric, pulling the rabbit of trad metal exponents such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, and other heavier outfits which probably shouldn't be mentioned at a pink and fluffy site like GDM.

The Songs
'Pillars Of Creation' contains some absolute crunching heavy metal, and without appearing like I'm taking a dig (well.. I am actually), I'd rather be listening to this than twenty years of regurgitation from Iron Maiden. Meaty slabs of metal are witnessed on the bone, as per tracks such as the devilishly deep 'Disillusioned', the mammoth power of 'Bloodlust' and the sonic bombast of 'Unholy'. These boys know what their game is all about, and don't veer to the side of the road with boring intros and mindless numbingness. 'Edge Of Tomorrow' is the best representation of where Dendera are at. Slamming drum work and hotter than hot guitar sizzle. Not to be outdone, the other tracks should give you whiplash, so watch out, otherwise a visit to the Chiropractor is in order.

In Summary
It would seem the band have lifted their professionalism in much the same way as a high jumper seeks incremental improvements on their way to soaring over the bar. Not quite at world record levels just yet, Dendera can see the target pretty clearly now, so I'm looking forward to seeing how they progress. Dendera have recently been out on the road with Canadian legends Anvil, which to me sounds like a perfect match. You gotta love it that the metal scene is being continued with some great new talent. Oh, and the Stonehenge styled artwork is way killer too! We want more!
