Justice Served
July 2017
Released: 2017, HR Records
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: UK Team

For those who don’t know, Tytan has an interesting history as a band. Formed in 1981, and around for a couple of years before taking a hiatus of nearly 30 years and reforming. Their first album, Rough Justice was recorded in the early 80s and this is the follow-up. Previous members boast an impressive pedigree, playing with AC/DC and Whitesnake to name but a few.

In terms of a style, this is definitely old school metal, but what stands out is the melodic approach they take. There’s a bit of a rockabilly feel to a couple of the tracks, particularly on tracks like ‘Spitfire’. There’s a great diversity across the album, with tracks like ‘Worthy of Honour’ and ‘Midnight Sun’ being soulful ballads and others like ‘Forever Gone’ upbeat and driving. There are some really pleasing and interesting uses of keyboards in places, elegantly delivered solos and the whole album works well together as a body of work.

I’ll be honest, there are a few moments where it does verge a bit on the dad rock kind of things – listen to ‘One Last Detail’ and you’ll see what I mean. It’s not a bad thing, by any means, everyone likes a bit of dad rock, but it edges a little bit on almost cheesy.

Overall this is an album that’s going to please ageing rockers and young metal fans alike. It’s fun and yet serious at the same time. Worth a listen.
