Effigy by Aittala

Effigy is the June 17, 2014 album and my second review for Raleigh, North Carolina based band Aittala which is a mix of classic heavy metal, progressive metal, thrash and hard rock comprising of Eric Aittala on guitar and lead vocals, Gary ‘Zeus’ Smith on drums and vocals, and Randall Rhodes on bass.  Ed Vereijken did the drum work on the last three tracks on this album.  This ten-song album showcases amazing vocals, heavy guitar riffs and driving drum beats on such tracks as the title track Effigy, Russian Roulette, Sinister As The Serpent, Creators Of The Doom and much more.  I was impressed with this performance as well as the songwriting and recording work. I will be listening and reviewing their other earlier work in the weeks to come.  You can pick up your copy of this great album on CD and digital download from Amazon, CD Baby, Bandcamp, and all other music outlets.  To learn more about this amazing band, their other releases and their tour schedule, go to their official website https://www.aittala.com
