“New Breed Of Godz” is the first release from Malice in over 20 years.
The remaining original members of the band have recruited James Rivera (Helstar, Destiny’s End, Seven Witches, Vigilante) to assume the lead vocal position.
Typically, albums that are full of recycled and re-recorded songs are pretty lame. However, Malice does a solid job of breathing fresh air into their classic tracks such as “Hell Rider”, “Sinister Double”, “Air Attack” and “Godz Of Thunder” without showing any disrespect to the original tracks.
The brand new title song “New Breed Of Godz” definitely has a definite Helstar feel to it.
Fans of James Rivera and the first three Malice releases should fine this release appealing as the band stays fairly faithful to the original compositions and Rivera still has that amazing voice after 30 years in the business.
