Mob Rules

Savage Land

Power metal, progressive or just plain metal; call it what you will, Mob Rules is a fantastic band. Their debut album Savage Land is an amazing effort from a young group that I hope to hear a lot more from. Pulling influences from early Queensryche, Fateís Warning and Iron Maiden they have crafted as pure of a metal album as anyone in the last decade. The songs are well written, well produced and well played. I have no complaints to offer up for this album aside from their tired, post-apocalyptic story idea, but itís very subtle so they even managed to pull that off without sounding cheesy. I highly recommend this cd. Iím eagerly looking forward to their next one in 2000.--Scott
