Review Flash

Now on to the underground, the youngsters, the ones that still are hungry! Tonight, I present you: AVIAN! Five guys from southern Germany that play old-school heavy metal inspired by the golden 80s. Let’s take a look at what the band has to say: “AVIAN is a Heavy Metal band from Ravensburg, Southern Germany. Founded in 2000. Resurrected in 2017.” Yeah, not exactly Tolstoi’s ‘War and Piece’ but short and straight forward just like the music: raw, melodic and effective. No Prog monuments, no 45-minute songs and no phony finesse just a nice ride with old-school vocals, nice melodic riffs and hooks and a drumming that serves as the band’s pacemaker. The songs are catchy but there is room for improvement: I don’t know if the band has found their definite sound, the bass is barely audible and the vocals could be a bit more melodic.

Conclusion: If you are a fan of the 80s and dig the Teutonic sound you should check out AVIAN as I am sure we will hear of them in the future.

Rating: 7 / 10
