BLACKFIRE REVELATION, THE: Gold and Guns on 51: CD

The first song, “Battle Hymn,” starts off strong for the first forty seconds and then the vocals come in and I think, “What I have gotten myself into?” Metal rock crap. The album contains muted screaming vocals, a double-kick drum, and a stoner rock sound. The songs run entirely too long at about four minutes apiece, are very repetitive, and the vocals are obnoxious. Think early Queens of the Stone Age plus monotonous, droning vocals and guitar to match.
