DESCRIPTION

Stealing a classic riff is easy enough, but commanding the ineffable spirit of an era is something far trickier, and this is exactly what Norway's Flight have managed with their brand new platter on Bad Omen. Above the time-honoured move of kicking off an eponymous debut album with an identically eponymous song, this youthful four-piece show themselves so adept at summoning the aura of the late New Wave Of British Heavy Metal -  in all its blue-collar, earthy glory - that one could easily imagine this album sharing record rack space with 'Number Of The Beast', 'Diver Down' and 'Screaming For Vengeance'.
Yet more than a love for the gritty riffing, earnest melodic vocals and twin harmony leads of the late-'70s and early-'80s, and beyond the fantasy landscapes and dangerous women of the lyrics,  'Flight' is possessed of chutzpah, bravura and unpretentious zest that taps into something more enduring and primal. These songs are heavy metal as communion with a simpler time in the past, yet also proof positive that heavy rock as life-affirming escapism is as potent in the early years of the twenty-first century as ever it was, and seems inexorably bound to remain just so.
