"A piledriver of an album...a perfect slice of heavy metal" - Powerplay Magazine
If it's pure, unadulterated heavy freakin metal that you want. Matterhorn has got what you need!
Featuring 13 original songs, that feature vocalist Amanda Ozolins' incredible power, range and control. There is something formidable about her voice that comes roaring out of the speakers and grabs the listener by the throat, commanding their attention. Focusing your attention further, guitarist Brendan Ozolins delivers riffs that honour his roots and are instantly recognisable as 100% metal riffage. There are no breakdowns or prog weirdness going on, just straight up pummelling riffs and soaring solos of pure molten metal. The full-frontal assault is driven home via Steve Opitz and Jaryd Dorey on bass and drums, who lock down monstrous groove from the engine room.
Ozolin’s lyrics tackle some pretty heavy contemporary issues, the superficial nature of social media on album opener Judge Nought, to Burial Ground's corporate greed, Asylum's the refugee crisis, to the ever-present threat of global conflict discussed in Spear Of Destiny and even the Bali Nine via the albums first single Memory Of The Guilty. Plus the uniquely Aussie Guest Of His Majesty which gives the First Fleet and early Australian life a metal soundtrack and some typically metal subject matter via Drive - fast cars, fast living, The Riff - Nuff said, and I Am Become Death, the most metal of topics, The Manhattan Project.
