1987

Naser Mestarihi
By Helen MacDonald

Apt title, given the hair-metal-friendly chugging rhythm guitar and frenetic soloing that abound. The lyrics fit in too, concerned as they are with rising up against an unspecified enemy like a phoenix from the flames. When the basic material is this cheesy, you’ve really got to commit, and – to his credit – Mestarihi mostly does (only “Blazing Temple” is really unconvincing), wailing and shredding histrionically. Which makes for a fun, if one-paced, record with some genuinely impressive moments.
