the cult metal of WARRANT returns (PURE STEEL RECORDS)

Warrant (Germany): Metal Bridge (Pure Steel Records)
Warrant returns from the tombs of oblivion to deliver what the Warrant followers want: unapologetic, upfront, fist-in-the-air thrashy metal, which is exactly what Warrant was known for with the 1985 album “The Enforcer.”
It took decades for the return, but Warrant’s screamer-singer Jörg Juraschek (the only remaining member from the old days) just could not stay away from Warrant any longer. In 2014 Warrant sounds tailor-made for Destruction and Exodus headbangers. The vocals are quirky in that Schmier-Zetro way, and the thrashing is tapped to anthem levels. At the same time, Mr. Juraschek carries a bit more melody in his voice than just screaming like crazy. On top of that, this album sounds like veterans and pros at the metal life: thrashing, shredding metal that concentrates on headbanging songs. It’s like this: you know that the metal music industry is full of fakers and trends, what’s cool, what’s not, what to wear, what not to wear, fashions and fame-seekers. You know this. Mr. Juraschek knows this, but if you enjoy cult bands of the 80s-style heavy metal and thrash, made for today, then this band has read your mind. Recommended for those into traditional-conservative heavy metal and thrash, especially if you love cult metal that never dies.
