The Heavy Metal Cruise is always looking for new music to bring to the party. Luckily, I have found it. Italy's Game Over brings the metal madness with their new album “Crimes Against Reality.” With ten tracks of heavy goodness, this set is sure to please metal fans around the globe.
The album starts off with a funky transition from the intro “What Lies Within...” to the first full track “33 Park Street.” After that however, the album picks up with a beautiful guitar into. Then the blazing riffs and outstanding bass drums take you for a ride. There are wonderfully crafted solos throughout “Crimes Against Reality.” The musicianship across every song is top notch. Everything sounds like it should be there. Every instrument working in perfect harmony. The vocals on the album proves that this band can do whatever they like in the metal world, and do it with style. Pausing for a few slower songs, the album changes the pace with perfection. It never leaves you wanting for speed and heaviness. Game Over takes the box and throws it out into the wasteland of normality, then builds a new one named “awesome.” I'm hard pressed to find anything negative about this compilation. Even the engineering is expertly crafted.
Game Over pays tribute to the thrash bands of the early years, but comes into their own style. Any metal music fan will want to pick up “Crimes Against Reality.” It's an album that will see many plays over the course of history. It's that good.
