Video: "The Alchemist" by Reapter

As soon as this song starts, shades of Steve MF Harris are going to be standing in front of you. Then the guitar runs are going to be moving far faster and traversing a greater distance than could be expected.

It's impossible to stay away from this track. Back to the Maiden references though, yes, there's a clear influence here, but there's never an attempt to ape them.

Ask yourself, what if Paul Di'Anno could sing better and Maiden came out of the block with Smith/Murray?

It's a modern take on the classic metal style. Ask them what other bands they listen to on Facebook.
