Fury - VR Review

Fury are a uk based band originally formed in Manchester in 2002, VR is heir second full length album following on from last year’s Salvation Ep and , well its bloody great!The album opens with the title track VR, a true metal gem that brings dream Theatre and Iron Maiden to mind, with tempo changes galore, galloping bass lines, harmonized guitars, and well just class. You can certainly hear Fury’s, influence's here, but they (to me anyway) never try to "sound like" them, they just mix em up and give us a great song! The album continues with Game Over, which again is a great melodic metal track, to be honest the album is big riffs wrapped around a powerful vocal and thumping rhythm section, creating some absolutely magic metal moments. the band seem to take all the best bits from the major metal bands of the past few years, we're taking the likes of Iron Maiden, Dream Theatre, Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera Helloween, mix em together and bring out their own sound....Vr is a great album, the guitar work is sublime, the vocals, well to be honest Chris Appleton sounds a little like Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe) but that’s no bad thing, he has a great range that suites the band’s sound and the lyrics are brilliant, Dio could be proud in places!!!Stand our tracks for me are,VRGame OverOutpost (possibly the best power ballad I’ve heard in years!!!0The Human Condition (Should definably be released as a single!!!)Well to be honest there’s not a bad song on here!!!If you traditional metal with a contempary edge, with great songs played by talented and passionate musicians then you'll love this album!!Check it out, buy it, and support a great British band............

Rating 9/10
