The band recently got on the radar opening for K.K.'s Priest (debut gig) with Paul Dianno at KK's Steel Mill on July 6, 2023.

Now let's get to the album

The Album contains 10 Tracks and has a running time of around 45 minutes or so.

This is a Band of 5 young Musicians, but they play beyond their years with great technical skill and precision. Stylistically they combine traditional Metal arrangements with more progressive Metal compositions, a la (dare I say) Iron Maiden. From the Opening Track – “Shadow of War,” to the epic Closer – “Rebirth,” Tailgunner delivers the goods with some strong songwriting and Musicianship. Mid-Up Tempo Songs, time signature changes along with straight up Metal is what you will get from this album, “Guns For Hire” from Tailgunner.

A Debut Album that is highly impressive 8 out of 10 Rating.
