Portugal’s Cruz de Ferro play straight forward no frills heavy metal. Their latest release Guerreiros do Metal finds inspiration from Grave Digger, Sabaton and features Iron Maiden like guitar harmonies. Vocalist Rocardo Pombo utilizes a gruff approach and is very reminiscent of Grave Digger’s vocalist Chris Boltendahl. The vocals are sung in Portuguese, which provides authenticity and adds a cultural element.
Featuring thick heavy riffs the music varies between mid tempo and up-tempo tracks. The title track starts with staccato picking before blasting into the quickest song on the record. The chorus is anthem like and is memorable; it will make you want to throw the devil horns in the air. Opener “Defensores” features another catchy vocal melody that utilizes some excellent double bass drumming. The guitar playing is top notch as the leads contain a lot of harmonies, shredding and finesse playing.
