“Written and partially recorded in 1990, some might say that with The Axe Of The Apostles, Final Axe captured heavyweight status by showcasing their catchiest, most accessible set of tunes yet. Even while retaining the precision guitar assault and the quasi-Rob Halford vocals, the band proves they are masters at being melodic without losing any of their intensity and edge. In true metal form, The Axe Of The Apostles is relentless and refuses to give you a chance to come up for air, displaying a real penchant for power metal-ready anthems. Drums are handled by Christian metal icon Robert Sweet (Stryper), whose busy, virtuosic rhythmic base pushes Bill Menchen (guitar) and Simon Tyler (vocals) to their most energetic and impassioned performance of their considerable careers. With The Axe Of The Apostles, Final Axe provide us an album that truly towers above pretenders as the genuine article of heavy metal greatness. Out-of-print for many years, Retroactive Records’ 2023 CD remastered re-issue features an 8-page booklet with lyrics and is housed in a jewel case and it is part of the label’s elite Metal Icon Series. Limited to just 300 CDs, get this classics while you still can! For fans of other Bill Menchen/Robert Sweet bands (Titanic/Seventh Power/Redeemer/Menchen) and Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Manowar and Overkill.” -Retroactive Records
