Having heard of Powerworld via their frontman Andrew "Mac" McDermott (ex-Threshold), I was eagerly awaiting this new album like a breastfeeding child eyeing up a nipple! Powerworld is very much guitarist Ilker Ersin's baby, he having founded the band back in 2005 and guiding it through a series of personnel changes to its current line up, and being the proud father that he is, he is now taking the band to new heights.
With the awesome opening duo of 'Cleansed By Fire' and 'Stand Up' you know that Powerworld mean business and there isn't much faffing about on the qaulity stakes!
'Evil In Me' sees the band rocking up a storm. and you immediately sense 'Human Parasite' is turning into one big melodic riffing monster! Rather than quietly building scene after scene, the guys have produced an out and out blockbuster of an album. This is music for the higher intellectuals out there - thinking man's metal, so to speak. In saying that however, the light and shade textures that colour this album are clearly more in the shade department, but with world class musicianship on hand I don't really give a damn!
If you are looking for an album where music speaks volumes - check this out! You won't be disappointed.
