Fury UK-VR


My first exposure to this band was over a year and a half ago when I heard their "Salvation" EP. Largely this their second full length picks up on the general direction of their previous material. Perhaps they even come into their own even more this time around. The band consist of Chris Appleton on lead guitar/ lead vocals, Martin McNee providing the drums and Luke Appleton playing bass/backing vocals. Certainly they were raised on a steady diet of classic metal including the likes Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest as their sound revolves around. That style makes up the basis of their sound although they occasionally rise up to an early thrash style as well. The results are a powerful blend of pure metal that revolve around a solid foundation. Rather than just copying their influences, I think Fury UK have actually managed to channel the sound of metal's founders and some NWOBHM bands. Perhaps they are slightly outdated to an extent, but that doesn't slow them down. This trio charges into their songs and they have certainly tightened up around the edges. There were a few moments where I felt like they could have raised the intensity level, but I think that will come in time if they stick to the course that they are on. They are followers of the sounds of metal's past without a doubt. Still they know to incorporate the kind of stabbing rhythm and pounding beats that serve as the guiding pulse for this style of metal.
