New Heavy Metal Music From Newcomers Coronary, Sleepless, Lunar Shadow and Herzel

Finnish metal squad, Coronary just recently released their full-length debut album titled "Sinbad" through Cruz Del Sur Music. It features ten tracks that capture that nostalgic early days of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal sound, beginning with the high-powered attack of the title-track "Sinbad." Chugging guitar riffs and swift heavy metal drumming is what Coronary is all about, as they bring the energy to tracks like "Firewings" and "Reflector." The rawness of their sound is definitely present on "Burnout," which draws up similarity to early Saxon. Coronory close out their new album with the dark, simmering tone of "Mestengo" and the aggressive pounding of "Wonders Of The World" to finish off on a heavy metal high.
