Koen B. : A few months back I reviewed Outlawed’s debut ’Stormbound’, which was quite a nice effort. The Austrian metal cowboys played melodic death metal with thrash and black metal influences, but on their newest output ‘A Wagonload Of Justice’, the band has interwoven more groove metal elements and the emphasis is more on thrash metal and Western / acoustic parts now. If you want to listen to this album in its entirety, just visit their Bandcamp page.
‘A Wagonload Of Justice’ is a good album too. Personally, I don’t like the mouth organ and Western guitars in some of Outlawed’s songs, but that’s just a matter of taste. If you forget these elements, you listen to a strong album of a strong band that needs and deserves more attention. This is a self-released CD so instead of buying the obvious metal albums that are released by the big companies, I prefer you support the underground this month. ‘A Wagonload Of Justice’ is for sale here. Saddle up or SHUT THE HELL UP!
