The Australian band Taberah is heavily influenced by NWOBHM and got rave reviews of their debut album "The light of which I dream" from 2011, which helped them to support bands like Motorhead and Dianno. This fall they return with the sophomore album "Necromancer" and fans of the this genre won´t be disappointed because we get a solid 11 track album with classic ingredients like twin guitars and 80´s metal lyrics. I really like this album and do welcome the layers of harmony vocals, songs that stand out are "2012", "Necromancer" and "Warlord". Plus I also dig their cool cover of Deep Purple´s "Burn". Thumbs up.
Recommended if you like Praying Mantis, Saxon and Tokyo Blade.
