A strong, supremely assured collection of heavy power metal.

If your band is water tight and the guitarist can make his axe squeal like a gutted pig then surely you're onto a winner. But if your trump card is an astonishingly talented lead vocalist, well then, the doors are open.

Electro_Nomicon is an USA/Argentinian trio (two of whom play in the Argentinian traditional/folk metal band Triddana) blessed with an array of great song writers and even better musicians. Formed in 2011, debut album 'Unleashing The Shadows' is clearly not a record by wet-behind-the-ears rock stars – this is a strong, supremely assured collection of heavy power metal.

At all times the sound is opened up by the sublime voice of Diego Valdez who sometimes does a passable Ronnie James Dio impression, but when he really goes for it his vocal power is breathtaking. His melodies counteract perfectly with the riffs of guitarist Juan Jose Fornes and thanks to a grand production don't beat one another for the limelight; they simply fill the darkness left by the other.

'Unleashing...' gets off to an awesome start: 'The Art Of Destruction' is the perfect blend of pulverising guitars and strong vocals. 'Waiting' on the other hand is a stomping, guitar chugging monster of dirty power metal. 'You Are In Shadows' and 'Far Away' show allows Valdez to show he can reign in the power, and at times take it to a different level. But 'Take Me' could probably do without the slightly silly synth riffs and a chorus that Journey would be proud of, although the choruses are undeniably huge.

If this is the beginning of an onslaught of South American power metal making its way to these shores then 2014 is already looking like a very healthy, heavy year already.
