Melodic metal that seems to come from the 80s, that is what the Greek band Heart Attack has to offer. Singer George Drimilis sang with Raging Storm, while bassist Nikos Michalakakos plays with Spitfire, the former Speedfire.

When hearing the opener Falling Apart, I can see those 80's poodle hairdos before my eyes. The pop-like and melodic vocals sound a bit nasal and they are not accent-free. The synths, guitars and the songs are very vintage, and yes of course we’re talking about the 80s! If you do not like bands like Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi or Foreigner, you better not start this Greek rock trip!

It is not innovative, but catchy, melodic and well made. The tracks have classic song structures and are quite convincing because of the good guitar licks and melodies. The lyrics contain lots of clichés, so you'd better not look for any depth here. Heavier songs are alternated with ballads like You're a Nightmare. An entertaining album that features some songs that were released on an EP in 2011, but get a second with this new mix.

Recommended songs: Falling Apart, Under Your Spell, Playing With Fire and Heart Attack.

Melodieuze metal die uit de jaren 80 lijkt te komen, dat is wat de Griekse band Heart Attack je te bieden heeft. Zanger George Drimilis zong eerder nog bij Raging Storm en bassist Nikos Michalakakos speelt ook bij het Griekse Spitfire, dat een tijdje gewoon Speedfire heette.

Bij het horen van de opener Falling Apart zie ik meteen de poedelkapsels uit de vorige eeuw voor me. De zang is poppy en melodieus, maar klinkt wat nasaal en met een accent. De synths, de gitaren en de songs klinken heel vintage, 80s dus! Indien je niet houdt van bands als Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi of Foreigner, begin je maar beter niet aan deze Griekse trip!

Het is niet vernieuwend, wel catchy, melodieus en degelijk gemaakt. De tracks hebben klassieke songstructuren en klinken door de goede licks en melodieën overtuigend. De teksten bevatten wel clichés, diepgang moet je hier niet zoeken. Stevigere nummers en ballades (bijv. You’re a Nightmare) wisselen elkaar af. Een onderhoudend album waarvan enkele nummers al in 2011 op een ep zijn verschenen, maar via een nieuwe mix een nieuw leven kregen.

Aan te raden nummers zijn: Falling Apart, Under Your Spell, Playing With Fire en Heart Attack.
