Redline is a band that hails from Birmingham, UK, that judging upon its sound, seems to have it’s roots in NWOBHM. They were founded in 2006 and so far have released a few demos and one record- under own management. This is the archetype of music that in the eighties would have been highly popular. These days however I’m not quite sure. Yet it would be a shame if this band would go by unnoticed. They produce a cracking sound. To start with: the vocals. Kez Taylor has a voice that I find a bit hard to place. At certain times he sounds a bit like Biff Byford (Saxon) but that does not sum it up, because as a matter of fact he’s got a quite unique voice, but a very good one. Musically it all also sounds almost perfect. I think fans of classic heavy metal groups like Judas Priest, Dio, Saxon etc. will like this album/group a lot.
