Single Review: Steelwing – “Roadkill (Or Be Killed)”
Blimey, someone’s been listening to “Ace’s High” by Iron Maiden a bit, haven’t they?
Steelwing are a bunch of Swedish (where else?) metalheads and sound like they’ve been teleported straight into this reality from 1985. The guitars go off on solos like they’re on commission for every extra widdle they can cram into the song, the singer goes into a Bruce Dickinson-style banshee wail at the slightest provocation and…well, it’s kind of a bit difficult to take it all seriously to be honest, especially in 2010. But then again, if you’re one of those people who really desperately needs to hear another bunch of guys who clearly worship at the altar of “Powerslave” etc, you’ll probably enjoy this.
