Pastore was formed in 2007 out of Brazil, by Mario Pastore (vocals) and Raphael Gazal (guitars), the other members being Aléxis Gallucci (bass) and Fabio Buitvidas (drums). Mario Pastore Astorg, born January 18th 1968, is notably a vocal instructor, and that said, his vocals are representative of that superbly throughout. This is their sophomore release, their debut release entitled, “The Price for the Human Sins” in 2010 was released to high praise.

From the start one is thrown into the excitement and energy of the album. The flame fueled guitar riff’s, the driving bass, and the nitrous packed drumming carried by Rob Halford type vocals sung by Mario Pastore are all elements for a great heavy metal album. Each song has an excellent composition and echoes of great classic metal influence brought to strength by skillful musicianship with a modern edge. Musically bands such as Iron Maiden and Judus Priest spring immediately to mind, and it’s that classical metal sound that gives this album that timeless feel. They are not re-inventing anything new here, but their musical prowess and skill capitalize well on this brand of sound. Continue reading »
