Varga – ‘Return Of The Metal’ (Vargantuan)
Genre: Traditional Metal
After a more than 15 year hiatus between albums, the Canadian band Varga regrouped and released their comeback effort last year. They quickly follow up with Return Of The Metal.
Varga have a classic sound with great guitar work and plenty of catchy melodies. The songs also have lengthy instrumental passages, giving the band a chance to show their chops. Joe Varga has a dynamic voice, generally singing with an edge, but breaking out the falsetto from time to time. But it’s guitarists Adam Alex and Sean Williamson who are the stars of the show, getting extended exposure and making the most of it.
