HellTrail – Always Shoot Twice

Label: My Redemption Records
Format: Download
Released: 2021
Reviewed By: Rich Catino
Rating: 6/10

With one album under their belt (“Off A Six Foot Town”) released in 2019, the German four piece decided to record a four song Ep during the pandemic, out April 2021. First track ‘Monkey On My Back’ instantly reminded me of fellow countrymen Rage, not only in the heavy guitars and delivery, but singer/guitarist Achim Lanzendorf’s tone.


‘Final Hour’ slows down the tempo with guitars the driving force and a couple pinch harmonics. ‘Constant Resistance’ feels more modern metal with those harmonic accents as it chugs along, while ‘Man In The Mirror’ in contrast uses acoustic guitars, melodic accenting leads, with the harder edge for the chorus. Even the voice at times is less gritty, clean and pleasant
