All right, don’t tell me that you don’t know what you are going to listen to from Pegazus. Old-school heavy metal, deeply rooted to the 80s but with fresh production that makes it attractive and pleasant to listen to it even these days. To be honest the album is full of clichés but it doesn’t bust your balls when listening to it, something that seems to be really surprising. It seems that the songs are good enough to make time pass easily and with joy.
 
Pegazus enforce their amalgam of Maiden-meets-Accept-meets NWOBHM-meets Running wild and carry on as if they are living in their own world. Those who are fond of traditional heavy metal with heavy riffing, galloping themes will possibly like it. For me the best part of the album is the song “Ballad of a Thin Man”! No, it’s not a cover to Bob Dylan’s song, rather a dedication to our crazy kings Thin Lizzy!!! The structure of the song is Lizzy-like, with the usual guitar harmonies and the lyrics is a patchwork of Lizzy’s lyrics. Yeah!
