Fury: Born To Sin

Traditional Heavy Metal Rock
4.0/5.0

My first turn with UK's Fury was a spin of their second album, 2016's Lost In Space, a very solid album of classic heavy metal with some sci-fi and space opera themes. Little did I know that the band returned in 2020 with The Grand Prize which a motor sports theme. Which, according to the band was no highly favored. Now the band returns with their fourth long player, Born To Sin, which finds the band returning to ever popular heavy metal themes: sin, evil, dabauchery, and demons. Call it Fury's version of a highway to hell.

Fury

What remains, however, is Fury's commitment to classic (and melodic) heavy metal in the grand parade of the New Wave of Heavy Metal. With subtle notes of classic thrash as well, this album is loaded speed and rock groove, twin guitar harmony and song melody, assertive but clean vocals (Julian Jenkins looks like a furrier version of Meatloaf (RIP)), and blazing guitar solos. Of the lyrical themes, they are self-evident with A Hell Of A Night (below), Embrace Demons, Born To Sin, and If You Get To Hell First. The irony in all this is the band photo wherein they are posed in front of an old church. But these songs are both "true metal" as it gets and fist-pumping rockers. The more perfect blend of this comes with It's Rock n' Roll, where speed metal in an assertive rhythm section merges with rock groove and punk attitude. While Fury tries to be both metal and evil as fuck on this album, a ballad is included with Shadows And Dust which includes piano, organ and, I thought, maybe some blues nuances. The album was produced once more by Pete Newdeck of Eden's Curse fame (which should make a metal fan take notice).

All said, Born To Sin finds England's Fury delivering another album of classic heavy metal infused with notable rock groove and devilish, debaucherous lyrics. You might want to buy it for the music. Recommended.
