This disc was a surprise. It came in the mail with some promo material. I didn't order it, apparently it was sent for review. Well, I love suprises, especially when they are as heavy, tight, and outstanding as Aska. "Avenger" is their fourth disc, according to the discography inside the extensive 20 page cd booklet. Well, I can honestly say that trends have not affected this band's sound as they are 100% pure heavy metal. In several of the photos the band can be seen wearing Kiss and Saxon shirts, giving me a clue that their roots are in the same bands that mine are. What else can I say, Aska are awesome! Everything, right down to the cover art, is top rate.
