Timeless Crime [EP]

After a debut album full of big, anthemic melodies, hyperdriven Judas Priest/Iron Maiden riffery, and the occasional gothic-sounding keyboard, Italy's Labyrinth offer Timeless Crime, an EP with more of the same cross between British metal, progressive metal, and speed metal. While a number of bands cut from similar cloth have appeared in the mid- to late '90s (tagged "power metal"), most started out as death-metal outfits and still have residual traces in their sound; that's not really the case with Labyrinth, whose straight-ahead classic metal would sound right out of the '80s if not for the keyboards and faster tempos. While Timeless Crime doesn't quite beat the full-on rush of Return to Heaven Denied, it is a nice way to tide fans over until the release of the group's next full-length effort. ~ Steve Huey
