Buck Tow Truck comes from Woodstock, Ontario, Canada, founded by Andrew Dona. This one man band plays a mix of hard rock influenced power metal and epic metal that remins a bit of Bathory circa “One Road To Asa Bay” era.
This record contains 9 tracks of midtempo metal with some hard rock riffing and clean sung but somehow filthy vocals. The whole record is produced in some dirty and more raw feeling of late 80-ies and early 90-ies. Listening to it that way I become kind of nostalgic for those times. There is also some Iron Maiden and Saxon/Priest song structures thrown in there for your listening pleasure. The melodies are simple but effective and the song titles have some tongue in cheek value along with flying the true metal flag. You just cant go wrong with the song titles being “The Battle Cry”, “Anarchy Metal” and “The Heavy Metal Warrior” for example.
Nothing special, but this album proves once again that one man bands can indeed be both quality and interesting at the same time.
