Curt Shaw – Adversity

(S/R – 2016)




The recently deceased’s swan song before he left the earth shows what an immense talent this guy was guitar-wise.


Old school, unrelentless speed-shredding and more is what you’ll find here that is like mid 80’s from beginning to end with a sound not dissimilar to the likes of Metal Church, Testament, Diamond Head etc – you get the idea right?


A mix of instrumentals and numbers with lyrics too with stand-out cuts being the opening speeder called ‘The Abandoned’; ‘Dark Corners’ or the very uplifting Beethoven like ‘We Now Return You To’.


Very retro!
