SLUGFEST book review

As a kid you were either a DC or a MARVEL fan. The reasons for each were simple  enough. Whichever comic book captured your young imagination first was the winner.

Soaring vocals and killer thunderous riffs. Guitar interludes that will blow you away. You must get this album. Look for a release this November.      Vocalist Norman Skinner is the real deal, honest, and true to his craft. He comes across as a down to earth true fan of power metal who is not plagued by ego problems like other musicians. I had a chance to speak briefly with him. " It comes down to something that I consider listening to over and over." was his response to what makes a perfect song. Later he would mention that he tries not to write songs that sound repetitive just to fill out an album. In regards to the longevity of power metal Skinner relates: " There is that formula thing. There are so many great bands out there. I'm constantly hearing them. Probably more than
