The crack of lightning, the rumble of thunder: If I had a nickel for every time I heard a song with such ominous bleatings, I still wouldn’t be able to buy a pint. But, this time, there’s no falsettos to back the rumble or guitar shredding to support the raining blood. Instead, Denmark’s Savage Machine uses this sky screaming to launch mankind from this puny planet. But, what’s in store for mankind on Abandon Earth? No one knows until the opening song begins to ramp up. As the strikes and crashes subside, and the piano and vocals surface, the true nature of Abandon Earth becomes clear. Mixing the heavy with the power metal, this five-piece sets a course for a new frontier that uses Iron Maiden/Iced Earth-like songwriting. All the while Troels Rasmussen’s voice soars and croons into Hansi Kürsch territory. And, like its influences, Abandon Earth covers all corners of the galaxy. It delivers crushing riffs, atmospheric solo work, and the emotion and passion that burns as bright as the sun.
