SoulHealer-The Kings Of Bullet Alley

Independent Release

Finland's SoulHealer are a heavy metal band that came along about 20 years too late. Theirs is the sound of hard rock forged in the fires of acts like Black Sabbath, W.A.S.P., Accept, Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, AC/DC and Kiss. It's loud without turning into thrash and crunchy without being doom. It's almost like a mash-up of early Quiet Riot style hard rock and Motörhead only with a early eighties underground metal feel to it. From album opener "Kings of Bullet Alley" with it's sing-a-long chorus to album closer "The Real Me" this is eighties heavy metal as played by today's fans. As I said this is about 20 years late to make a real impact. If SoulHealer had formed alongside bands like Twisted Sister, Manowar or Armored Saint then I have doubt that their vinyl records would have sold like hotcakes. Now though tastes have changed and its mostly just old men like me that smile at those familiar eighties heavy metal riffs. That said though for those looking for that long-lost feeling of heavy metal (when it was still raw and smelly) you should check SoulHealer out. And for you younger readers out there who have found treasures in your parents old record collection where Saxon sits comfortably next to Ratt and Iron Maiden this is a band worth hearing.
