I am quite a fan of Rob Rock's powerhouse vocals and his recent work with Impellitteri and his own solo album have created a nice little catalogue of high octane melodic heavy rock to listen to.
Fans that have followed Rock should take the next step with him to this new project, taking over vocals for the melodic metal band Warrior.
The volume, style and tempo of The Code Of Life is another step up the metallic ladder for Rob Rock, but as heavy as it gets, he still manages to keep pace perfectly and add additional melody to the song with his awesome voice.
He's not involved here, buy those that love the whole Roy Z/Bruce Dickinson approach to production and delivery should find more to love here.
The music is strong and aggressive for sure, but Rob takes the quality to a new level.
This is prime time heavy ass tuned down melodic metal.
Those that love Impellitteri and Rob's solo work, but wouldn't want it to get any heavier should check out soundbytes before buying this.
BOTTOM LINE: Another great album to add to Rob Rock's resume and another good example of European heavy metal, with plenty of heavy bass and guitar riffs, and in your face vocals. One for the fans of the heavier side of life.
ESSENTIAL FOR: Fans of Rob Rock and Warrior and those that love the heavier & European style of hard rock.
