Friday Morning Metal – No Return – The Crimson Rider

This is some fast and aggressive metal here from No Return, a French Thrash band since the 90’s, but the vocals are just so death metaltastic. But French Metal is fun to find, and these guys are good at what they’re doing, so it’s not the worst thing in the world that the singer sounds like Cookie Monster hopped up on PCP.

Clocking in at close to 6 minutes, the song gives plenty of opportunity to showcase the shreddy guitars, frenetic drums, and crazy noodly guitar solos. If only the vocals were like Havok, or even Alestorm.

So if you like growly vocals, give it a shot, it’s probably right in your wheelhouse. If not, still give it a spin!
