MAD MAX – Stormchild Rising [Limited Digipak +1] (2020)
Thirty-seven years since founded by Michael Voss (Wolfpakk, Phantom 5, Schenker) MAD MAX is keeping the German metal flame high no matter what. They keep playing the classic 80s hard n’ heavy of their origins, unadulterated.
In no way it means that their new album “Stormchild Rising” is more of the same. I’d rather say it’s one more chapter of the story the band is writing. Mixing hard rock, classic metal and melodic hard, MAD MAX still got it: nice hooks & refrains, catchy choruses and huge melodies make this worth your time and money.
