Canadian trio Cauldron continue to ride the metal preservation route, as this band wired with authentic classic metal circuitry demonstrates their vintage ways on their latest nine-track affair BURNING FORTUNE. Boasting basic yet effective songwriting efficiency resonating with the spirit of heavy metal from the early to mid 80s, Cauldron lays down a melodically driven vintage sound that teeters somewhere in between a Sunset Strip hair metal band with choruses as big as their hair and a down and dirty proto-metal troupe with bursts of snarling aggression. Exuding a pronounced sense of simplicity that blissfully captures sentiments from the era they aim to recreate, Cauldron supplies a bounty of nostalgic time machine trips on this disc that at times go heavy on the cheese e yet rarely wane from following the old school heavy metal playbook.
