Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. While in retrospect, the success of the now very obscure German act Talon may have only been nominal at best, they were able to garner the attention of SPV, whose German affiliate was also supporting the slightly less obscure German outfit Attack.

Whether one goes to a traditional metal album for a simple good time or something that is marginally deep at times, this album does a pretty consistent job of covering the obligatory bases with a mixture of relationship based and broader subject based songs. Pound for pound, this is the strongest and nastiest mix of metallic anthems that this band has ever put forth, even going so far as to outclass a couple of contemporary outfits of similar persuasion such as Tyran Pace at times. The ground work for what was rapidly becoming the German speed metal scene can be found on here, in at least the same level of concentration as Accept though not of the same overall quality per sayand bits and pieces of this approach to rocking out in the continued efforts of Sinner and Primal Fear, two bands that some members of this outfit actually ended up in down Freedom From Time - The Mackenzies - Desire road interestingly enough.

Sadly this is about as hard to come by as the famed first 2 albums put out by Angel Dust in its original form, so only the rabid seekers of German rarities need apply for a vinyl copy, while the smarter money is on digital.

The knight who stood so proudly astride the debut Neutralized returns with a new, shining chrome dragon-horse thing, and one might think this mobility might transfer to the sounds of the band's music. However, at best, Never Look Back is just as heavy as the first album, only a lot less interesting.

A new guitar player had entered the ranks, one Robert Bobel joining Uwe Hoffman also the vocalist Never Look Back - Talon - Never Look Back / Vicious Game , and stepping in for Steve Hohenberger. Perhaps this explains the thicker guitar tone found on the sophomore, or perhaps not, but that's pretty much the only difference in style separating the two albums.

Otherwise, it's more of the same, with Talon once again setting themselves up with some of the better songs on the album. After this, I felt the album took a dive in quality. I do quite enjoy "Venomous Gods" and "Call It Arsen", and wish they had been shoved towards the fore to improve the album's initial impact.

Never Look Back is not a poor successor to Neutralized, but it ultimately would not increase the band's stake in the game, and it is in fact the worst of Talon's catalog. Die hards of all things German and heavy metal, that dwell blessedly upon the bliss of Accept, Scorpions, Bonfire and lesser known acts like Samain would probably lap this up, at least the finer bits. Uwe Hoffman still sounds great at the helm, his last spin at the wheel, but this record really just fails to send Various - zBrunne Schiint dSunne band sprawling over the walls of obscurity.

The songs lack the desired level of emotional bite, and the chorus parts are rarely memorable. Worth a listen only if you're obsessed with Neutralized, or one of the many similar bands spewing forth from Europe in the mids. Metal Archives loading Username Password Login.

    Otherwise, it's more of the same, with Talon once again setting themselves up with some of the better songs on the album. "Never Look Back" is another of those slower paced, fist banging anthems, with big chords and slight melodies, while "Defense Condition" blazes forth into speed metal territory, plucky melodies and a great verse structure.

    "Vicious Game" () and the band's previous release "Never Look Back" () are pretty rare and tough to find. There's combo CD of both these albums by Steamhammer floating around on ebay occasionally in the $ range.
