Review by Mark Pritchard and Rick Tilley
Hi Everyone, it’s Rick.
We don’t often get asked to review a Label/PR Company compilation and if we do receive them they often get put to one side as there are just too many other albums arriving, but they are definitely not pointless. Personally, I tend to listen to them in car going to or from other gigs and have discovered some really great bands on them that I would otherwise have missed.
German PR Agency METALMESSAGE are one of the many companies we deal with to bring you news, features, interviews and reviews and their owner Markus Eck is one of the nicest people you could wish to deal with so when he asked Mark if he could write a few words about the latest compilation album he had put together called METALMESSAGE VII: Respect The Steel” I said it was fine.
The following paragraph belongs to Mark and I have to say I pretty much agree with him on everything. You could certainly do a lot worse than checking out any one of the bands on this sampler, even the artwork by Serbian illustrator Dusan Markovic.is fabulous, and you should definitely check out METALMESSAGE too, a company that does things the right way!
The other day I was asked by METALMESSAGE owner and friend Markus Eck to have a listen to a compilation album he has spent months putting together with the possibility of me writing a small review and I can only say that I jumped at the chance! Ladies and Gentlemen, what we have here is an awesome album called “METALMESSAGE VII: Respect The Steel” which is comprised of thirteen tracks from thirteen different metal bands who come from various countries and there isn’t just one genre of metal being portrayed. ”VII: Respect The Steel” is, in my own words, a masterpiece of metal combinations all rolled up into one awesome album. With the likes of Invictus, Hell’s Guardian & Atrium Noctis, to name but three bands featured, ”VII: Respect The Steel” just entices to be heard and listened to. My album rating is an easy 9 out of 10 and I want to say a huge thank you to METALMESSAGE main man Markus for the huge amount of time he put into making the compilation and for asking if i would like to write a small review.
