Triaxis – Rage And Retribution (2012)
Rocksector Records -- Running Time 53:46

My next few reviews will be focussing on the excellent Rocksector
Records, a truly great independent label that has a knack for signing superb up
and coming bands in the UK, and looking after them with style. I have already
covered Incassum and now it’s the turn of Welsh quintet Triaxis.

When I first heard the debut, self released, album from Triaxis in
2009 I have to admit I wasn’t at all sure about them. Well, hard work pays off
and having signed to Rocksector and touring heavily over the last four years
they returned in October 2012 with their sophomore album ‘Rage And Retribution’
and it is a belting slab of Heavy Metal that has seen them grab a whole new army
of fans in the months since its release.

Think of classic metal bands such as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dio
and later era Black Sabbath and mix those with the riffing speed and precision
of Megadeth and you have Triaxis. What makes them different though, is that they
have two females amongst their ranks. Vocalist ‘Krissie Kirby’ has a wonderful
set of pipes. She is a mix of Bruce Dickinson and Heart’s Ann Wilson, but don’t
worry, there isn’t a Within Temptation or Nightwish warble anywhere and Rhythm
Guitarist ‘CJ Hale’ plays her Jackson Flying V with enough power to down a
rhino. Alongside those two Lead Guitarist ‘Glyn Williams’ is out of the top
drawer, delivering quality solos that never outstay their welcome or try to do
too much and the rhythm section of Bassist ‘Owen Crawford’ and Drummer ‘Giles
Wilson’ complement one another perfectly, showing you how the two instruments
should work together.

On the song front ‘Rage And Retribution’ delivers time and time
again. ‘Sand And Silver’, Black Trinity, ‘Under Blood Red Skies’, ‘The
Butcher’...the list goes on. Great verses and catchy choruses all spewed out
with some serious intent. Triaxis also know when to calm it down though, several
songs have quieter passages that work very well and ‘Asunder’ starts of as a
ballad and slowly builds to a ferocious end. Production is also excellent, with
all instruments being clear and audible. Listening to Rage And Retribution
compared to their first album is like listening to Metallica’s Ride The
Lightning’ straight after ‘Kill Em’ All. If this improvement continues then
album number three could well be Triaxis’ ‘Master Of Puppets’ and we will have
something very special on our hands.
