Tyrant - Too Late To Pray - Combat Records 1987
Picked this record up this past weekend at my new favorite record store. I can't believe how much awesome punk and metal records this shop had. Anyway, I had Tyrants first Lp as a kid and stupidly sold it in the 90's. When I saw this one sitting in the bin for $3 I had to have it. What you get is really good doom/power metal I guess you could call it. They use a falsetto scream in the background of many of these tracks which is pretty cool and actually sort of original for this style of metal. There are times on this record where Jag Panzer comes to mind and that is a very good thing in my opinion. Now all I have to do is track down a copy of their first Lp and add it back to the collection.
P.S. I was just advised that Tyrant is still active and playing in NYC on 10/15/10 so anyone in the area should definitely check them out. I also see that they have some merch available on their webpage , so if you like this post please stop by their band page and show some support as well. Band page is here
