EDITORS’ NOTES

Toronto’s Cauldron deliver their fourth album of ’80s-style metal to drive fast with the top down to. Not hair metal or thrash—just the pure, catchy, beer-soaked-jean-jacket stuff, like Anvil, Raven, or Dokken before the genre got super-serious. High-registered Jason Decay sings like Joe Elliott when Def Leppard were kids, and tunes like “No Return / In Ruin,” “Burning at Both Ends,” and “Santa Mira” are downright celebratory, packing speedy, stick-to-the-ribs riffs. For early Metallica fans, there’s even an epic, cloudy-day instrumental called “Delusive Serenade.”

Old School With A Twist

After listening to this album for the past few weeks, I can say this is something special. Cauldon have only gotten better with each release and this I feel is their strongest output yet. The vocals take a little getting used to but I enjoy them a lot personally. This whole album is a really solid group for songs. I would suggest buying the whole thing but if you dont want to some of the best tracks are Empress, Burning At Both Ends, No Return/ In Ruin, and my personal favorite, Santa Mira.

Instruments

Not a fan of the voice, the the instruments are great. Very Metallica sounding.
