Sure, this album only comes 35 years too late to make a lasting impression in the history books of rock. But it provides a welcome trip down memory lane with ten new songs that reminisce of the early 80s when the New Wave of British Heavy Metal hit an unexpecting, but soon to be enthusiastic audience. The Deep stems from that time but never managed to release an album until now.

Premonition is definitely worth the wait, as powerful rock does never get old. Especially at a time when many of the old bands gain more recognition again, or for some for the first time, The Deep has a real chance of being noticed. They are still deeply rooted in the underground and had to release their debut album independently, but that was true for most of the acts over three decades ago as well. A NWoBHM release, true to form and style, from 2015. What’s not to like?

    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.
