Thunderball (The End Records)

By: Mike SOS

Standing alongside Halford, Meine, Dickinson, and Osbourne in terms of metal majesty would be Udo Dirkschnieder, the diminutive yet unbreakable lead throat of Accept and now his own project, U.D.O. The new album contains the standard formulaic hard rock you'd expect from this metal icon, with a few twists thrown in: the Russian flavored "Trainride in Russia", complete with native instrumentation and lyrics is a tad cheesy, but hits the mark, as does the mid-tempo stomp of "The Magic Mirror". Yet, that unmistakable yelp coupled with some potent power metal riffs is what brings 'em back every time, and tracks like the title track and "Fistful of Anger" don't disappoint. For a solid shot of classic metal, allow the veteran know how of U.D.O. administer your metal fix.
