Ten years is a long time between albums, but the new output of US melodic hardcore band Ignite was worth every month of the wait. During all this time the band was touring and obviously perfecting the 13 tracks that follow in the footsteps of Our Darkest Days on their new album A War Against You. The release is packed with great, memorable melodies which are countered by diverse hardcore riffing, both condensed in short, in-your-face melocore songs that leave no one on their seats. The band bridges genres by even including an occasional guitar solo here and there. A War Against You is not only for the coreheads out there, but definitely worth checking out by the regular metalfan, too. The first impression is that Zoli Teglas is an incredibly fine singer. And then the melodies will do the rest.

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
