(8/10) Interested in some real heavy metal from the underground? Yes? In this case you shouldn’t miss Stallion’s sophomore release “From the Dead”. The guys from Baden-Wuerttemberg published their debut in 2014. “Rise and Ride” was a first wake-up call that’s followed here and now by their newest stunner “From the Dead”, a longplayer that comes with ten songs, 45 minutes playtime and a real metal vibe.

“Underground Society” kicks things off. This song speaks volumes since the band puts all their verve into this up-tempo metal track. This tune is a real headbanger with a lot of undusted oldschool metal being included. No wonder that the guys fitted perfect into the line-up of the famous Keep It True festival, which they took by storm.

Stallion knows the ropes – from fast songs like “Hold the Line” to power metal hymns like “Awake the Night”. Even Lizzy Borden–moments are included, bringing back late 80’s metal. “Waiting For a Sign” is the name of the track you definitely should have heard. And last but not least the band also included an ultra-fast statement on “From the Dead”. “Kill Fascists” is a 16 seconds number that doesn't need more of an explanation.

Stallion and their new album prove again the knack of High Roller Records has for young metal bands with a lot of potential. In case you’re into traditional heavy metal with a retro touch you should check out “From the Dead”. But watch out. Better train your neck muscles beforehand since this album will put some demands on them.
