We Bleed Metal sounds exactly what it is meant to sound like. It is a cry for battle, it is metal anthem for metal. Through nine songs Chastain displays ripping and roaring traditional metal in the vein of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Chastain makes you realize that traditional metal is still very much alive and kicking and it’ll be dammed if it’s going to go away any time soon. We Bleed Metal is rooted firmly in the past but still has its eyes set on the future.
From the very beginning of the album there is no mistaking that you are in for a full throttle heavy metal ride. As soon as the opener We Bleed Metal begins you become strapped in the heavy metal roller coaster and no matter how much you scream and panic you will not be let off.
This album is for metal heads designed by metal heads and of course everything about this album oozes thick metallic blood. Chastain takes everything that you love in old school metal and crams it right down your gullet until your head explodes.
Throughout We Bleed Metal the songs are longer and with that time Chastain uses it to their full advantage. With the extended songs it gives Chastain the ability present more of a story to you and let it unfold before your eyes.Not only do the songs tell stories with a longer format, but they also have enough time to make certain that you snapped your neck from headbanging as hard as you possibly can.
All of that headbanging is induced by all of the savage riffage, bold bass lines, solid drumming and razor sharp and piercing vocals. Each song displays blazing riffs that are supplemented by even more flange flaying guitar solos. The musicianship on We Bleed Metal is tight, technical and each instrument is played at mach one.
That mach one speed is exactly the speed your head will be spinning once popping this CD in. At the end of the nine blistering tracks on We Bleed Metal I’ll be dammed if you still have a face. Chastain is calling everyone to battle to stand and fight for the right to headbang. So what are you waiting for, go on and sign up for the metal war!
