Mindfield harkens back to when metal was pure, before flannel wearing kids sipped lattes at Starbucks. I like it when I can hear the vocals, and Mindfield do a good job on Be-low of creating heavy metal songs with great guitar solos. On “Dead End Love”, the band do their best Megadeth impression complete with soaring guitars that are melodic. A lot of heavy metal bands lack attention to melody but not Mindfield, they remind me of the mid- eighties when big hair and four guitars jammed the request lines. There is a nice piano on “Gallery of Black” swinging itself into a power ballad complete with audiences holding lighters to the heavens. The only thing missing is the mullet hair styles and Aqua Net, very nicely done Mindfield. This is by far the best metal album that I have gotten in the mail in a long time. Who says real heavy metal is dead? Ben Matulich
