Released 23rd February 2015 (Europe), USA/ Japan release date TBA
Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal
Released via Dream Records

‘Lost Salvation’ is the second album from the Brighton based, British heavy metal band Furyon. It is the follow-up to their highly acclaimed debut ‘Gravitas’ which was produced by Rick Beato (Shinedown, Fozzy) back in 2010.

First up is ‘All That I Have‘, a melodic track which offers an interesting mix of clear, story-telling, hard rock vocals with powerful, heavy metal guitar riffs. The pace is rather slow but the skillfully executed guitar melodies make it memorable. The title track is much heavier and faster in comparison and the aggressive, “shredding” guitars and a catchy chorus only add to the appeal.

Yet there’s more to these guys than just your average hard rock music. The album also features some dark, groove metal undertones in both the drumming and the guitar riffs as evident in tracks such as ‘Scapegoat‘. Other memorable songs include: ‘Good Sky‘ which has some of best and the most energetic guitar solos on here and ‘Wiseman‘ with its “playful” rocking guitars, catchy solos and an easy to follow chorus. I can foresee the latter becoming a crowd favourite at the live shows.

Overall, this is a very well produced album from a promising band. I appreciate the variety in their sound and the fact that they don’t just play it safe. Their signature mix of hard rock, melodic heavy metal, groove and even elements of progressive metal is refreshing to hear.
