Awakening Savannah – The Demon Inside
(Cargo Records – 2021)
A real ballsy throaty gruff vocalled band that are like Metallica meets Beatdown & Biohazard without relying on thrash riffs and who have some fabulous arrangements for our ear-pleasures.
For those of you who did not know, this Swindon, UK based bunch are made up of Steve Tanner (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Andy Molyneaux (Bass/Vocals) & Liam Dearing (Drums).
Highlights include the opening powerful 'n' melodic 'Rebuild'; the blues of 'The Banished'; the balladeering 'Emily'; the questioning 'Hour Glass'; the sad but alt the time beatifully orchestralish 'End Of The Line' or the unwanted reality of the closing 'Pandemic'.
