Staff review by
Traveler are a new traditional heavy/melodic/speed metal band from Canada that released a demo last year which made an impact among the fans of the style, despite its poor production. Their self-titled debut should make an even bigger impact now that the sound has immensely improved.

Decent speed metal record that shed some hope for the genre. I would like the songs to have more character, it's a bit too anonymous at the moment even if it rocks. Very close to a 7 but I can't seem to really find any highlights so a 6 will do.
And what do you call assassins who accuse assassins anyway, my friend?

Even I can't find a single highlight. All the songs kind of sound the same. But good heavy metal nevertheless.
Leeches everywhere.

Another solid NWOTHM album, with a really quality sound to it. The twin guitaring is very well done, the riffs are fun and catchy, and full of speed, the bass and solo's are impressive too, but the vocals impressed me most. For me there is no individual songs that really stand out, but none worth me skipping either, it's not outstanding, or original, but it's good and consistent.
