3.0 out of 5 stars Sins and Greed (3,4 stars) September 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Blitzkrieg is a British band, formed in 1980 and part of the New wave of British Heavy Metal movement. The band didn't manage to release much music during the movement though, but after they reformed in the mid-nineties they have been releasing new music slowly but steadily. "Sins and Greed" is the seventh full length release by this band, and their sixth studio album.

Musically Blitzkrieg are still very much a band playing music in the NWoBHM vein. This is what is known as "true metal" these days, recognizeable for anyone familiar with this type of music.
They have updated their sound though, and it seems that the band actuallt has been influenced by bands they themselves have influenced; especially the guitar work here have moments where influences from bands like Metallica, Megadeth and even Anthrax can be heard. The music is still very much true metal though.
Fans of Blitzkrieg from the early 80's will need time adjusting to this music though. Early Blitzkrieg had a sound closer to a band like Motorhead, these days their music are closer to what Iron Maiden made in the 80's, though without being a copy or derivative of that band.
The one recognizable element Blitzkrieg still has is the voice of Brian Ross, who still is an excellent metal vocalist.

The songs in this release is a mixed lot though. There are moments of sheer brilliance on this record, but also cheesy moments that'll give most listeners large goosebumps of the wring kind. Still, the good moments outweigh the ones that aren't; and there are quite a lot of sweet tunes here.
I'd recommend checking this one out; even if you have to use the skip function on the remote a couple of times here.
