Album Review

VICTORY is one of Herman Frank’s many musical playgrounds but nevertheless a self-contained band with a distinctive sound and it’s very own energy. VICTORY was formed in 1973 as FARGO, 1984 saw the rebranding into VICTORY and a new chapter for German Heavy Metal. The only two bigger breaks happened between 1996 - 2003 and from 2011 to this very year. 2021 will be seeing the eleventh full-length release of the band from Hanover, Germany. Metal Archives compare VICTORY to bands like ACCEPT and MÖTLEY CRÜE but I hear influences of AC/DC and GOTTHARD too so it is safe to say that VICTORY don’t just copy another bands style but has a very own sound that is rich with palpable impacts of other great musicians. As a big fan of cheesy heavy ballads I do love ‘Mad’ because it bring the right amount of cheese to the 80s retro sound and pairs it with a dope as fuck melody and a great vocal line. Speaking of great vocals: Gianni Pontillo is everything an AOR fan could ever ask for and he perfectly impersonates this special 80s vibe that I love so much. ‘Unconditional Love’ is a song in the same vein so I dig that also of course. All in all this is a solid rocking piece of music from start to finish with some nice highlights for a sentimental old fart like me. Check this out or just order it.
