This band should be arrested. They should be in jail. They're criminals. They don't play the game in a fair way and that's not right. It's high time that someone stood up and said something about it. That's why I'm here. To call for justice. To call the shots.
The audacity of this band. I mean, the nerve! Here is their plan. Form a traditional heavy metal band, and make every single song a hit and make everyone bang their heads and get them all addicted and infected with heavy metal mania, like a highly memorable child of Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy (or is it Scorpions and Thin Lizzy?). Anyway you slice it, friend, welcome to the hit factory! They have one passion only: writing hits! Walpyrgus is a hit-writing heavy metal machine from the United States. The guitars sing with huge melodies and harmonies, and the voice singing is there to make you sing; it's a bit more on the side of melodic, hard rock vocals than air-raid-siren high vocals.
This band is not a 70s punk-style band, but they make their songs so compact, it's like they have been listening to The Ramones and Misfits and they stole, just right out stole, that idea for heavy metal. Get in, play the song efficiently, get to the chorus fast, waste no time and end it quickly. Then, start the next one. They do a bit of the gang-shouted backing vocals, too (I told you; a bit o’ punk). Their lyrics are horror-themed with an upbeat Alice Cooper-like feel (or is it Misfits-like vibe?). Rocking traditional heavy metal packed with hits. Are you in?
