If you like 80's metal with a twist of 21st Century, then you'll love U.D.O. Udo has carried on the ACCEPT banner since 1987 or so, and this album is nothing short of a masterpiece.

As others mentioned, Udo and the band are kind of in a new phase with MASTERCUTOR, DOMINATOR, and now REV-RAPTOR. All three of these albums are about equally as good to me, with maybe MASTERCUTOR being just slightly in the lead due to it being the first slight "change of direction" album. This change entails just a little tweak to the sound, adding an almost RAMMSTEIN-ish or NIN-ish production value to the recording process and drum sound. Since I also enjoy those bands, it works fine for my ears!

The big thing with Udo (and when he was in Accept) is the voice- and here, once again, it's in top form! Growling vocals, crazed screams, and heavy-duty songs are the name of the game. Udo has never let me down on a studio album! One thing I did miss a bit was his crazed laugh---that madman giddiness he gets when singing songs like "Heaven Is Hell", "I Don't Wanna Be Like You" and "Pull The Trigger", among other classics---and on this album, the only song he does that on is "Run," which is available only in the expanded edition "Leatherhead" as a bonus. Of course, I had to get that as well as Rev-Raptor! Love the snarling Udo laugh! Ha! Heh! Hah! Heh!

Guitar work and production are awesome if not traditional on this album. Standout songs in this area are "I Give As Good As I Get" (nice job of making the guitar "sing" there, Stefan!!), "Underworld", and "Days of Hope And Glory." These songs also happen to be among my faves in terms of lyrics and Udo's vocals as well, although all the songs are great!

Continuing with his never ending crusade for metal domination of the world, metal legend Udo Dirkschneider and his band launch their 2011 blitz with another slab of heavy music that powers on like a swathe of Tiger tanks over the fields. Rev-Raptor is full of the power riffs and unique screaming vocals that we know as trade mark Udo. The man never strays too far from the path he has trod for over three decades and this album is no exception, but when he's found the formula for success why should he? Still, Udo always tries to give something a little different on each album, but only a small dose so fans always know they can rely on the man to deliver an album of the kind of stuff they know and expect. When a musician does this with the frequency and regularity that Udo does then you know he really is thinking about his fans and therefore huge credit must go to him.

As has been the case now since about the early 1990's former Accept drummer/current U.D.O. guitarist Stephan Kaufmann has co-written the majority of songs and produced the album, but I must say that on this one I have a bit of a criticism about the sound of the drums. They sound a bit... digitalized? I don't know if this is a deliberate thing or not, but too me the drums sound like they did many eons ago when Microsoft computers first came out and you ripped albums into the hard drive and played them through windows media player. I don't like it because it sounds unnatural.

As far as the songs themselves go on Rev-Raptor, well they just don't hit the mark for me like they did on the Dominator album from 2009, or Man And Machine from the early 2000's. On Rev-Raptor I can't say that there are any bad songs but there really are no stand outs either, so in general it has all the elements you want from U.D.O.

I have been a big UDO fan for a long time. I love grass roots metal. In the US it's hard to find bands still practicing the art of hard metal. I liked a lot of UDO's Accept work and even saw them live on the Kiss tour. I have almost all the UDO albums. I have to say that Mastercutor is my favorite album in the last few years. UDO is a prolific band and they put out about one album every year. So...this album, Rev Raptor- I pre-ordered it on Amazon. It doesn't disappoint with hard, primal, metal. Every album since mastercutor, has carried at least some of that album's theme and sound. Dominator, sounds a lot like Rev Raptor. It's hard to describe, but Mastercutor and Dominator songs were heavy, but a little more "catchy". While Rev Raptor gets a lot of play in my car, I like the two aforementioned albums a little better. I think the Mastercutor theme has run its course and it's time for a new direction - but that's the great thing about UDO, he/they are able to change directions and stay just as strong, a feat most bands can't perform. So....if you like UDO you'll like this album. If you like accept, I don't know how you will feel about this album, UDO has his own sound and comparisons to Accept get harder each year. If you like the last two albums you'll really like this one. If you're new to UDO, get Mastercutor and Dominator too, they are like chapters in the same book. From one metal head to another - enjoy!

One of the best UDO albums of all time. Mean machine was the other that resembles old Accept but this album shocked me to hear dirk Schneider sing as he does at his age.
