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.

GDM has previously reviewed this Canadian metal band back in 2015. We came away quite impressed, even if it was a Covers EP. This time around we look at a full blown studio album; 2017's 'Prevail I'. This is Part One of a two part opus; the second due later in the year. After a couple of albums released on their own bat, Germany's Napalm Records have stepped up to the plate, and it's about time too, that a major label bought these Canucks onboard. Due to the similarity of having a female lead singer, comparisons can immediately be made to Scandi outfits such as Battle Beast and possibly to a lesser extent Amaranthe. Singer Kobra Paige is indeed the star of the show, much like Lizzy Hale and her band Halestorm, while her bandmates aren't too far behind.

The Songs
This album is a solid affair, very melodic amid the thunderous riffs and lead weight rhythm section. From the sci-fi affair which opens the album ('Gotham'), followed by the intense and melody thick 'Trigger Pulse', the album is off to a good start. 'You Don't Know' is the first change-up point, KATL moving gears into the modern/alt metal realm, it's followed by the heavier than thou 'Specimen X (Mortal Chamber)', which really does present the band in a positive sense. 'Light Me Up' as a ballad is delivered with a bit of power, even if the song structure might be predictable. The instrumental 'Check The Phyrg' and 'Hell On Earth' are both hard driving affairs, the former taking a swig out of the 80's neo-classical metal scene.

In Summary
Overall, I like what KATL have to offer, and along with fellow Canucks Striker prove that there is more to rural Western Canada than meets the eye. We look forward to Part Two later in the year.
