Koen B. : Metallic cowboys from hell uhhhh….Austria? Sounds kinda strange and weird to me (of course Lederhosen metal would be more obvious), but Outlawed is the living proof of it! The band exists since 2013 and ‘Stormbound’ (released in 2014) is their first ever effort. This CD has become a self-releaser so you won’t be able to find in your local record store, so check out their homepage, Facebook page or Bandcamp page, listen, check out the details, (free) download or order the ‘Stormbound’ CD.
Of course the cowboy thing is only a concept. You don’t need to listen to the lyrics of such as ‘Born To Wander’ or ‘Wages Of A Gunslinger’. I don’t either. The fact is that the lyrics are quite inaudible too, so who cares? I just enjoy the music and it’s pretty harsh. This doesn’t sound like Willy Nelson does metal…Outlawed plays melodic death metal with thrash and black metal influences and they are pretty good at it. A new album entitled ‘A Wagonload Of Justice’ is about to be released soon but in the meantime enjoy ‘Stormbound’ because it’s a storm that rages hard! Hiiiiii Haaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!
